Reissues »  [SOLVED] Apocalyse (UK) Abandon Hope 2CD released 2010
The live show on disc 2 seems to be late '81 / early '82, based on song intros.
Does anyone have a more specific date?

The Abandon Hope 10 track album itself, is it vintage or modern recordings?

Any better info at all would be greatly appreciated.

Did you click the [Additional notes] tab of M-A´s 2 CD edition?
Fine description that leaves no question open, does it? :P

As for the live recording: The gig was in 1982 at a Bikers club called "Starting Gate" in Central Milton Keynes, England (a venue for up to 200 people).
I don´t know the exact date though.

Hi R.W. Thanks for your reply. Yeah, I saw all of that "additional notes" info.
I'm just nerdy about getting as much detailed info as possible.

I appreciate your extra info about the live gig.

best wishes,
