Please read backstory...........
In 1983 Derek Bailey was due to visit Japan for a concert tour and decided to take with him, for sale at the concerts, a cassette recorded live in Milwaukee. Approximately 500 cassettes were prepared and dispatched to the promoter in Japan but, in the event, the tour fell through and the cassettes were returned to England. On arriving to collect the two boxes containing the cassettes from the Post Office Derek found that they were badly damaged and, having to pay to re-gain them, decided to collect only one of the parcels. These cassettes - number not known, but probably around 150 - were subsequently sold at other live dates. All were produced on a light-grey plastic cassette body with 'CONCERT IN MILWAUKEE, DEREK BAILEY' plus date of concert, printed in
light-blue directly on the cassette body.
