Think about it.  Back in 1983...David Bowie was playing live and someone recorded it.  What did that recording apparatus look like?  If it was 2021 it very well could've been a phone and MAYBE a 1/3" wire coming out of a headphone jack from the soundboard.

Back then it was probably the size of a stove and some poor schlub wearing mascara had to haul it back & forth from a semi truck wearing bright red leather pants.

Puts things into perspective, huh?  Makes you appreciate it a bit more, right?
