Recorded by Dutch radio this show has been broadcast several times over the years. The full show was around an hour and forty minutes long, but a lot of this time was taken up with Don getting annoyed with some idiots in the crowd – one in particular makes an irritating squealing noise.

A tape version of it circulated for sometime with the incomplete show plus an interview and between song comments by Dutch presenters. More recently very good sound quality recordings of the complete show have appeared.

The Paradiso show has been bootlegged a number of times. Here are the ones we know about:
