This is what blogging is all about - receiving & sharing gems such as this...maximum respect & thanks to Nicola of Italy who has just shared this with me. Nicola is aiming to compile a website / database on The Prisoners gig history - please leave any details / information for this via the c-box or comments section... I will then pass this on to Nicola.

I am delighted to be able to post this diamond - The Prisoners live @ Prince Charlotte, Leicester, April 30th 1986. I was luck enough to see them a fortnight later (as support on The Ramones Tour) at Manchester Apollo with an old schoolfriend Chris Hargreaves (now of New Zealand). Still haven't managed to locate a recording of the Mcr gig, though I still live in hope a quarter of a century on !!! All these years later it is still a very clar memory & rates as one of the very best gigs I have ever attended...
Sound quality here is admittedly not fantastic - as Nicola pointed out, this is a veteran cassette tape recording of probably much previous copying... Still, well worth the download & a great collection to any collection.
DO NOT MISS THIS ONE !!
PLEASE do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any Prisoners or related live tapes gathering dust...they need to be blogged HERE !!
