FM broadcast. Remarkable setlist includes the premieres of "Point Blank", "Rave On" and "Heartbreak Hotel". Another live debut "Independence Day" is performed solo on piano for only time on the tour. "Point Blank" features different lyrics to later versions and is played slightly differently. Also includes the first known tour performances of both "Twist And Shout" and "Raise Your Hand". Originally broadcast on KMET FM Radio. "Point Blank" and "Thunder Road" have been edited where the original broadcast had problems. Probably one of the best shows Bruce will ever do. Available on many unofficial LPs and on CDs 'Roxy Night' (Crystal Cat), 'Hands Towards The Sky' (Lobster Records) and most recently on CDR 'No Private Party' (Ev2). This show was one of the main source concerts for the official Live 1975-85 box set, which includes no less than eight recordings from this show (“Spirit In The Night”, “Paradise By The ‘C’", “Adam Raised A Cain”, “Growin’ Up” [with a few cuts in the middle-part “lawyer” story], “It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City”, a heavily edited “Backstreets” with the "Sad Eyes" sequence removed, “Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)” and “Raise Your Hand”). Another performance recorded that night, “For You”, was later released as a B-side/bonus track on 7”/12” vinyl worldwide, and on CD in Japan only (Live Collection EP). In addition, a short live excerpt from this show (Bruce’s speech given after “Badlands” about a photo recently taken of him) was officially - and exclusively - released on a promotion-only 7” flexidisc issued to subscribers of Austrian pop magazine "Rennbahn Express" in June 1981. Thanks to Lost in the flood for the update.

 
  • TheBoots.net Info

FM Broadcast. Live broadcast on KMET radio in Los Angeles, CA and another contender for best show ever. Premieres of "Point Blank," "Rave On," and "Independence Day," which is performed solo on piano for only time on the tour. "Point Blank" features different lyrics to later versions and is played slightly differently. Several songs from this show are later used on the Live 75-85 CD set; unfortunately, the edits in "Growin' Up" and, most notably, "Backstreets" show how much tinkering was done in the studio in preparation for that release. Once a person hears the unedited version of "Backstreets," they realize how disappointing the Live set actually was. Thus, this show must be heard in its unedited entirety.

This show has been on my 'got to improve' list for a very long time - I tried many different methods but was never satisfied with the results. This time I finally am.

 

The 'remaster' is very much 'labour of love' - I hope you can enjoy the show as much as I.

 

'Remastering' information:

Main source: Roxy Night (CC 342/343/344)

Source for edits in 'Point Blank', 'Thunder Road' & 'Adam Raised A Cain': Hands Towards The Sky (LOB004/3)

Show completely re-EQ'd, multiband compressed (not much) and tracks re-indexed. Raised higher frequencies while lowering certain others to remove the 'muddyness' (sp) of the original source.

 

Thanks to Gchord for the artwork source PSD files and 'Ivannf' on SPL for helping me out with this.
