Recording - Magma, Tapage Nocturne, May 3rd 2010, Part 1

Here is the recording of the 1st of 4 parts of the Magma retrospective on Tapage Nocturne. Thanks to our Uncle for this one. We certainly wouldn't mind an English translation of some of the more interesting bits.

I assume that the recording of MDK is the same version that many people have been sharing for a long time. I hope that this version comes directly from the master tapes. (Update: the sound quality of this is fantastic.)
