very good JEMS master audience recording capturing the B-52's
promoting their Mesopotamia EP, which came next after wild planet
and before Whammy.
it's an enthusiastic performance (has to be if it's original B-52's)
and Fred says before about half the songs "this is a dance song."
not just this show, that's standard fare for this band.
alot of their songs are very dancable with catchy beats.
this band likes to dance, and by this time were becoming known
as a favorite American party band.
