Although you might have a struggle finding Early Stages to buy physically, I think that you can still get digital downloads from Amazon / iTunes (spit, spit) etc.

There is a Friday Night Rock Show group on Facebook that appears to have or have access to the tapes of quite a few shows, it's always worth asking them for help

Wish I'd bought a copy when it was available on here now! :? :cry:

I always put it off as I thought it was a bit pricey. That's ironic isn't it? :(

Looks like it could become rather collectible though 8-)

I know what you mean Geoff, i bought it though when it first came out cost me £45.00

Although i would say that the Curtain Call Boxset is a lot rarer and you would need to shell out a couple of hundred at least to get that, which i do grudge doing as there is not a lot of variations in the songs on that boxset most of which are taken from live concerts.

Think the Early stages one is much more better value for money in that respesct. :)
