The original Garden Lodge tape was recorded on a 90 minute cassette and takes up the full tape on both sides. I was the first person to hear and record this tape, and over the years snippets have appeared, somehow, but never the whole thing.

Sounds interesting. I have quite a few snippets but I would be interested in hearing the full tape. Any change you would like to trade it? I have loads of rare stuff available for trade. Please send me an email at: mrducksoup@hotmail.com
I'm sure we can work something out!

The tape I have is indeed a 90 minute cassette and takes up both sides of the tape. The 'b side finishes one and a half minutes before the tape runs out, so it really is around 90 minutes and not 60 as is what was written in the 'FM Solo Collection' book.
This could of been a mistake or maybe Peter Freestone didn't want the full 90 minute version heard.
Mr Scully you may of been the one who transferred the tape to CD, but I recorded mine off the original cassette in 1996 at Peter's flat in London.

I believe it was a wellknown Dutch fan that sneakily recorded it on his cam while Peter played it to him. Or are you saying that there are more people with the integrity of a mule and having no problem in betraying someones trust?

GT - OK, that explains it.

I don't remember how many tapes were there. 28.03.1987 = 71:37, 29.02.1988 = 52:39.

Indeed, the Garden Lodge stuff leaked somewhere in Holland. It's a shame because Peter was blamed by QP for it.

Yes thats right, there were these two as you mention above.....and also another tape of Freddie and Mike Moran on their own.
By the way they were both recorded on the 29th, not the 28th as you say, just different years and months.

Can we assume that certain Dutchman's name starts with a B?

Both tapes were accidentally erased with Sesame Street songs in the summer if '99.
Tragic, really.

At the risk of sounding totally stupid here... what exactly do you guys mean by a 'Garden Lodge tape'? I'm just curious. Thanks

Lots of gay crap no-one would give a sh*t about if it weren't for one of the guys being Freddie Mercury.
