The Beat - Hammersmith Palais 1982


Evening all.a brilliant repost from the Beat recorded at the legendary Hammersmith palais venue for the BBC in 1982. This post was requested by the equally legendary KennyHel77. sorry for the delay mate but it just took me a while to find the c.d. But its worth the wait. Ive been playing it all day and even gobshyte junior likes mirror in the bathroom!!.anyways its 14 tracks of brilliant quality, well 13 if you dont count the introduction.so play it loud on this reasonably warm day in old london town,open the windows so the neighbours can listen too,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

Nice post - I still have the original radio transmission of this on cassette (the BBC version, none of this 'English Best' nonsense!) but it's great to get a good quality replacement for it!

There were quite a few other good broadcasts around this time - I recall a Madness one notable for an embryonic version of 'The Sun and the Rain' as well as early Style Council and The Truth concerts (if they're your sort of thing). If you've got any of those...

Cheers

This was a really nice set. I've always loved the Beat, but this was one of the best live recordings I've come across. Thank you so much for making it available.
