For those who aren't familiar with Bad English, they were a band fronted by many Journey members in a time when Journey had disappears (1987) and nobody knew when the next Journey LP was going to happen. Turned out being the next Journey album (or CD) was released in 1996 as the band members reunited to make Trial By Fire.
Bad English had present Journey members Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain in the band as well as future Journey drummer (and current too) Deen Castronovo.

An earlier transfer had been made by Brian in 1989 as he traded with other traders with it. But this is a fresh transfer (2010) from the master cassette.
I never listened much to Bad English. I knew the songs from the radio, but since the songs didn't sound like Journey songs, I just wasn't too interested in the music. And even today, it really isn't my 'cup of tea' too much. But I do enjoy it a lot more, and with such excellent sound and work by the taper, I'll definitely become more familiar with this recording as I crank it up later this weekend.
Here's a copy and paste of Brian's notes:
"This recording has been circulating since '89 however this version is a new master cassette transfer from my original analog master tape (Feb. 2010).
Here's one from the short lived Bad English. This show was at a club called the Bacchanal which was a pretty nice club except for this show. They packed so many people in there for this it was just crazy. I don't know if the Bacchanal still exists but i saw tons of shows there in the 80's and 90's,in fact it's only one of two places I've been caught taping a show, I got nailed doing Paul Stanley in '89 about 20 minutes into the show, bummer because I've never seen that show in the boot world."
I've not done anything other than test for lossiness, add my "Bootradr's TLH CDDA Test" text file to show the test results, and I checked for any sector boundary errors (SBE's) and there were none. This is an "as is" recording I'm making a fast upload of for anyone interested in it.
I hope you enjoy the concert...
