BRIEF HISTORY

Ever wondered why everyone seemed to have the bootleg of the Dallas date of the Blond Ambition Tour in edited, but absolutely lovely audio quality? Well, that's because it was specially recorded for a radio broadcast, to be sent around the US Radio Networks for broadcast to their audiences. The broadcast was simultaneously aired on the weekend of August 27th 1990, three weeks after the tour had ended

All the radio stations which were taking part in the simulcast were sent a triple LP set of the tour split over six sides of vinyl.  As the networks were commercially funded it meant that the tour was split into little bite-size chunks of mostly two-song sections and then the companies which had paid for advertising during the show had their 30 second or 60 second advertisements played.

The sponsors for the tour were Doritos, the US Air Force, Greyhound Buses and CBS Television all aired their promo spots during the broadcast repeatedly!  Westwood One was the company that put together the live recording and to say they are legends of radio live music broadcasting is putting it mildly. However, even they aren't infallible - the classic miss-naming of 'Sooner Or Later' featured on every cue-sheet accompanying the triple LP set as did the annoyingly common miss-spelling of 'Blonde' (although they got it right on the actual discs).

Westwood One required all shows to either be returned after broadcasting or to be destroyed (and for the radio station to sign an affidavit confirming this).  Obviously, as with anything potentially valuable, this didn't happen and a handful of the sets escaped the radio station recycling bins and made it out to collectors.

A Stunning Piece of Madonna tour history which for the last 25+ years has appeared in the top 10 of the most collectable , rarest & sought after Madonna records in the world in many record collecting forums & magazines.
