Notes: I've got this treasure in a trade with an Italian fellow trader who owns the first issue of the vinyl bootleg "Central Passage" (Dreamradio Records, KW 198 105 19). He digitised it by himself and sent me the raw 16-bit files via Soulseek. This bootleg features the very first concert - in a complete form! - of the Computer World Tour, which happened splitted in two legs back in 1981. As far as I know, this is the ONLY source of this concert that has made its way into trading circles. A silver bootleg CD called "Hyper Cerebral Machine" (Vox Populi, Work 5536-2) claims to feature a recording of this concert, but it actually brings the one at Palalido, Milano from May 27th, 1981 - and in an incomplete form.

Something curious on this recording - and in most of the earliest Computer World concerts - is that "It's More Fun To Compute" was played just like in the album, rather than that funky version that used to close the concerts. Besides, "Showroom Dummies" is sung in French, thus we call it "Les Mannequins", and "Pocket Calculator" is partially sung with Italian lyrics ("Mini Calcolatore"). The sound quality is quite good if compared to most of the other recordings already surfaced from this tour

This blog is merely an index with public links for audio recordings of independent origin (ROIO) which have not been officially released. No audio or video content is hosted here. We only provide meta information files for the ROIOs. If you're an artist (or a legal representative of an artist or its estate) and you don't want your ROIOs shared on this blog for FREE among your fans, you may opt out any time by sending e-mail to the site admin. We will then put you in our list of not allowed artists. This will halt all sharing of your ROIOs in this blog within minutes. BTW, the ROIOs exist, you can't make them vanish. So, why not let your fans get them for free from one another instead of having to purchase them from commercial bootleggers on auction sites?
