Human League The making of Dare (bootleg)

The Human League
'The Making of Dare!'

Soundboard Recordings
Encoded: 192 Kbps MP3 ... se/3020495

A collection of unreleased demos & rehearsals from The Dare! sessions.
Fascinating compilation of unreleased demos and rehearsals from the sessions that made up Dare! One has to bear in mind that, at that time, the Human League's stated method of recording was that the band would pull together a demo, then Martin Rushent would programme the technology to play the backing. What you get here is a lot of fairly basic keyboard backing tracks, some with, some without Phil's vocals - so presumably we're talking about the first stage of that process.
