A Mike Millard Recording on The Heart of Markness Podcast
On May 25, 1980 Genesis, touring in support of Duke, played an intimate gig for 500 fans, at West Hollywood’s iconic Roxy. Mike Millard was there, front and center, with his legendary recording gear. There’s ambiguity as to whether this is a master recording, or taken from a 1st gen, but in any case the sound is phenomenal, as is the performance.
This tour, in support of Flowers In The Dirt, is Paul McCartney’s first tour since 1979’s Wings UK tour, and his first world tour since 1976. People were ready and he brought it. He played 31 songs (lots of Beatles songs) in his marathon set at the LA Forum, and Mike Millard was there to capture it.
We are blessed with another Mike Millard recording, courtesy of JEMS. David Bowie August 14, 1983, at the LA Forum. The Let’s Dance tour. Bowie’s first in 5 years. Wonderful sound as we listen to songs from Scary Monsters and Let’s Dance.
