Decent recording for this vintage. New Feeling cuts in on second verse, might be a
song or two missing before that (a newspaper review of this show mentions that The
Book I Read and 96 Tears were also played). Some tape damage audible here and there,
not too bad. The “tick tock” sound heard on quiet parts is from the recorder’s motor.
Note from the taper: Recorded at CBGB on a crappy cassette recorder. This was recorded
on December 21, 1976. The group was still a trio; you can hear someone in the crowd ask
“What’s Jerry Harrison’s status?” Enjoy! – James Britt.
