— Tracks 01, endings of 03, 08, 14, & 15: original FM broadcast master (October 15, 1983),
provided by duke2004 on

provided by Peter G

Notes: A stellar, nearly flawless FM broadcast recording. Most of the tracks are sourced from an original promotional BBC silver CD, with two tracks and some patches for other tracks provided from a great sounding FM broadcast master provided by duke2004.

REVISION A Notes: The date of this recording has been corrected to October 8, 1983, based on the BBC Radio International catalog search page detailing the «In Concert 320» BBC pre-FM vinyl ( CD & pre-FM LP artwork photos / scans provided by Dennis Burmeister have been added as well; while the pre-FM LP was not used, images are included to show that the recording date was not provided on any of the original artwork of that item. A screenshot showing the BBC catalog page with the date is also included. No changes to the audio has been made.

The original info file, «Depeche Mode London 1983.txt», has more information about the background of this recording and credits those involved in the rework. I suggest reading it.

Other sources exist, but there is little use in making them available. They are detailed below:

— original promotional BBC LP — provides no quality benefit over the CD and is still as incomplete, requiring the same FM patches
— two BBC 6 Music DVB-S broadcasts — terrible 160kbps MP2 quality with squashed dynamic range
— an 8 track FM broadcast by Swedish P3 live during their «Speak And Spell» special in 2011 — again, incomplete tracks, no quality improvement
