September 8, 1990 - Derrick May live at Slam in the Park, Scotland



Slam: "We had put on an all-nighter in 1989 at the Tramway in Glasgow, and it attracted so many people both with and without tickets that the police closed down all the streets around the venue, roadblocks everywhere, leaving a lot of people outside and disappointed. So in 1990 we hooked up with Regular Music, a promoter who had worked with Bowie and all the punk bands in the '70s and early '80s. The idea was to put on a series of all-night events that would be managed properly.

"We had filled the small hall at the SECC in March of 1990 with 3500 people, and we came up with this idea to put a big tent up in a country park near Glasgow in the September of that year for 4000 people. We played alongside Jon Dasilva from the Hacienda and Alex Paterson from The Orb. 808 State played live too. We'd had Derrick May over in 1989 to play at the Sub Club, and it was a complete honour to have one of the guys who created techno music completing the bill.

"Slam in the Park was a precursor to the Slam tent at the T in the Park festival. We even got a sunrise and clear sky in the morning to complete what many consider was the best party of that early era of dance music."

According to some sources this set has been recorded in 1990 at Slam in the Park in Bristol. However Slam in the Park took place in Strathclyde Park, Strathclyde close to Glasgow, Scotland. Althought the exact location and date of the recording is a bit uncertain it is clear that is has been recorded in 1990.
