Comments
Be careful with this one.

Issued under the name Raoul and the Ruined, this was actually a fan club release of Marc and the Mambas last gig, recorded at the Duke Of York Theatre in London on 18th December 1983. The vinyl release comprised the first eight tracks and is now very rare (call it £100 on eBay).

There is also a CD. In some locations this is referred to as if it were a subsequent re-release (why would a fan club do that?) and the going rate on eBay is about half of that for the vinyl.

But the CD is very clearly a bootleg. There's a very noticeable deterioration in sound quality between track eight and nine.

It's an excellent recording, nevertheless, with an incredibly varied set.

Review by: Stevo KifaruOn 19 Jun 2014 at 11:24 CEST
I hope I can clear up something, the CD is actually a re-release by the Fan Club. The reason the sound deteriorates in some songs is simple, fans were calling for a repress of the LP but on CD. The Fan Club wanted to give value for money & add the extra songs from the original concert that were left off due to time constraints of vinyl. When Marc's people went to locate the soundboard recording, the vinyl master was all they found, the original full concert had gone. They added to the CD by using tracks from a bootleg audience tape, this was documented on the Theatre of Marc Almond, pre-warning people of the drop in quality.
