Scott Simpson notes:

It seems 10,000 Maniacs passed through NYC a few times this year. And through Danceteria as well. This was when the venue offered free shows on Tuesday nights before the larger after hours dance crowd arrived. We went because the band was recommended by a friend. This was the era of my D6 and Sony lapel mic. The room was practically empty, so it was mostly just me standing in front of the stage. Over the years, the master tape was lost. And, as I never really got into the band, this straight 1st Gen dub is all that remains. But this tape was probably only played once in the past 30 years, so it's pristine. Off of a Fuji FR Metal tape.
