This is from a much longer version of the 'aircheck' recording of the first ever Top Gear that the late Bernie Andrews kept. Significant for us as we now have The Scarecrow in the same quality as the Flaming, Set the Controls and Reaction in G upgrades from a few years back . Reaction in G is actually a few seconds longer than what we had before Shocked

Syd's vocals on The Scarecrow really benefit from the inline source, his performance is much more nuanced than the off air source we have been saddled with led us to believe.
