Collection of early Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) live 79 / 80 (Flac)

Formed in Liverpool with Paul Humphreys (synthesizers) and Andy McCluskey (vocals and bass guitar). They played their first gig in 1978 at Eric's (Liverpool), then had a run of UK chart hits after swapping labels from Factory to the Virgin owned label DinDisc starting with the 1980 release 'Messages'.
Although Humphreys left the group in 1989, McCluskey made a comeback in 1991 with the UK top 5 'Sailing On The Seven Seas', and followed that up with a UK top 3 Album 'Sugar Tax' before finally calling it a day in 1996.
In 2007 they toured together again featuring the classic line-up of Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, Malcolm Holmes and Martin Cooper and released a live-album in 2008: 'OMD Live: Architecture & Morality & More'. September 2010 saw the release of History Of Modern featuring the original classic line-up.

This is my favorite OMD recording (in terms of performance and sound quality) and want to share the version I edited. The original version I obtained from, although it sounded good, suffered of clipping. I tweaked this and other things. This is listed ad August 12, 1980 on but I think it's from December as on December 10 and 12 they played on the Netherlands. In the site, the date is marked 1980-12-00.

The band:

Andy McCluskey: bass, vocals
Paul Humphreys: keyboards, vocals
Malcolm Holmes: drums
Martin Cooper: keyboards (The page says that Dave Hughes left on November, being replaced by Martin Cooper)

Added a not so good edit for the track "The Misunderstanding", adding the missing bit from a version live on 1981-04-24 The Concert Hall, Toronto.

Hola de nuevo amigos.

Como viene siendo habitual, volvemos a satisfacer la petición de un seguidor de este blog, peticiones que más me satisfacen a mi, porque es señal de que este sitio web en cierta medida funciona y cumple con mis propósitos. También agradezco las peticiones porque de esta manera vamos recuperando el material perdido tras la apocalipsis megauplódica.

En esta ocasión os ofrezco un disco editado por el subsello Dindisc en 1980, que pretendía mostrar lo que hicieron los chicos de Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark algunos años antes de ser lanzados al estrellato del firmamento Tecno-Pop. En 1978, Humpreys y McCluskey tenían clara su inclinación por la electrónica experimental, tal y como podemos escuchar en estas grabaciones. Personalmente, creo que deberían haber mantenido un proyecto paralelo a sus trabajos más comerciales, porque la verdad es que hubieran dado mucho de sí en el terreno industrial.

Ahora os toca a vosotros escuchar, paladear y opinar.
