The bootlegged studio and live recordings are in the hub - complete as far as I know.

The cassette you are looking for does exist.


"Original Version
Much rarer, this actually originates from a 3.5" computer floppy disc, i.e. its not even on tape. The music was originally written on a computer (Brian likes his gadgets!) and was only mastered onto cassette so that it could be played over the theatre's PA system.The version on cassette was also remixed for the theatre, so that it would flow seamlessly from one part to the next (as said before, the original is a collection of short segments). Once the remixing/remastering onto cassette was completed, Brian finished with the floppy disc and abandoned it. It soon acquired a legitimate owner, and the one and only original is now safely tucked away. Again though, a few illegal pirate copies have surfaced (not circulated by the current owner). Its a much shorter piece, but has no audience noise or other distractions. All the elements from the "live" version are here, but in significantly better sound quality. Although still an acquired taste for some, really.

My thanks to the legitimate owner of this recording, for clarifying the above details."

Apparently, you are looking for the cassette copy/remix that was used by the theater. Maybe the owner of the floppy disc can tell you if the cassette was given away in the theater.

YV: Apparently, you are looking for the cassette copy/remix that was used by the theater.
Yes, that is correct. That is exactly what I am looking for.

As I am not in the hub, would it be possible to share this here? Also, if they are already in the hub, I guess these uploaded versions are of no use to anyone?

YV: Maybe the owner of the floppy disc can tell you if the cassette was given away in the theater.
Yes, tapes were given away at the theatre, and yes, I also know the owner of the floppy disc!

Yes, of course it can be shared but it won't be any different than the snippets you posted.

If there are a load more Studio bits up there - then they would be useful to me, (and others in a similar situation). Obviously, If I own the live version, then I have no need for another, but, as far as the 'Riverside cassette' is concerned, I am very interested.

All I am asking for is someone to please share something which is otherwise freely available.

Thank you for this, but this upload has nothing to do with Macbeth whatsoever.

This upload is actually three sperate tracks:

Moody Keyboards
Keyboard Sounds One 1:47 - Unreleased: Home Mini-Disc
Keyboard Panpipes 1:02 - Unreleased: Home Mini-Disc
Keyboard Bells 2:57 - Unreleased: Home Mini-Disc

It comes from the ending of the 'Bell Boy Tape' (side 1) where Brian makes some random keyboard noises. (If you listen carefully you can hear the beginnings of 'Who Wants To Live Forever' - c2:43 at the end of the 'Keyboard Panpipes' and again at the start of the 'Keyboard Bells' c2:53, returning at c4 mins, and finally c4:42).

So I guess that the 'real' Macbeth still needs to stand-up! However, the good news is that there are cassette copies out there - somewhere!

PS: As far as I know - my original posting contains the first genuine 'Macbeth' snippets to reach the internet - so they are still unique in their own right.

Doesn't that just piss one off when it happens?

Sometimes it's a bit disappointing to download a mislabelled track but it's not done on purpose and usually shared in good faith. I would not say it pisses me off.

Ok, I'll change my above statement to say it is disappointing. However, I still thank you for uploading this, and as you so correctly say, mislabelling is usually the result of genuine mistakes.

One good purpose of a forum like this is that such mistakes can be rectified, and that has to be good news for everyone.

Just to clarify: The whole MIDI stuff in that 3.5" diskette has nothing to do with the Macbeth promo cassette given at the theatre.

By the way, most of what it is on the Trainspotter Guide is either outdated or plain incorrect (it seems that Jason relied to much on reports rather than listening to the tracks himself) - but it WAS a start.

Correct. There are three versions.

One: Demo 3.5 diskette (No guitar)
Two: Macbeth promo cassette (With guitar & orchestra)
Three: Live Theatre Bootleg (Audience recording)

The version I am looking for is version two: The Macbeth promo cassette (With guitar & orchestra). I know these are NOT that rare, but, I have never seen them for sale, or internet/pirate copies. They just seemed to have disappeared!

The versions I have uploaded all come from the 3.5 diskette.

The main title lasts c5 minutes - while the full Suite should last around 45 minutes.

Someone, somewhere, must know something about this - or at least have one (or a copy) for sale?
