The recorder, according to the info is Richard Le besnerais, an audio engineer at that time. He has an FB page: https://www.facebook.com/richard.lebesnerais?fref=ts

I asked if he remembers something.

Dear Binone, where is this information that Richard Le besnerais is the audio engineer at that time and was involved in the album MFN-1988 and specifically in Portobello Belle-live?
The info.txt file but is about the bootleg tape,  no the 1988 album.

"Richard Le besnerais"....sounds very frenchy to me.... ;)



There is no information in the booklet of the LP or the CD of the MFN collection, informing the place where this recording of Portobello Belle was made, the only information is this: (June 1983), nothing more!

yes you are right, but I remember reading "Paris June 83" somewhere (another edition ? japaneses ? Video disc with clips ? can't remember)


ok I am listening to the whole concert right now, I am going to check your points

for now, can't say why, but i feel all voices sound french (not only one)
my recording is incomplete : I don't have going home. the last clip is named "14 Thank yous Come up and do the next 2 hours"
Is it the same recording ?

I will give back my impressions after listening the whole gig

ok I listened to it entirely, and I heard that :

several french voices audibles during quiet moments
sound a little bit saturated and woobbly at some points

intro in R&J : "I wrote this song when I was down" or something like that

indeed Terry plays his drum intro on Twisting
at the end of twisting by the pool, Mark seems to say "merci"

when Mark introduces the sax at the start of PB (around 2:20) he says something like "Mel sax from Paris"

during intro in TR : again "assis" en "debout" clearly audible on right channel, and not the same voices as on PB (on left channel)
ok they may be tourists, but if so, there would have been lot of french tourists at this dutch gig at that time...

at the end of TR, all the audience shouts "une autre, une autre une autre !" (which means "one more" in french)
 I don't think it's a dutch audience fulled of french tourists... :think

after solid rock Mark seems to say thank you and then "merci"
Alan plays indeed a small melody on piano, but to me it does not fit with Tulpen uit Amsterdam

sorry, but to me this gig sounds like a french audience, so very likely in Paris
or do I not have the same recording ? :hmm
