VG+ after some minor equalizing. Sound level adjusted. Some gaps between tracks removed.

This is a fucking great tape obviously representing the first show of Iggy's '81 North American tour. The sound is fantastic for an AUD recording and the show is anyway. A further bonus (at least for me) is the addition of the brass section form Uptown Horns on 3 of the songs. I don't know if they have played on any other show of the tour but this is quite special. Uptown Horns played already on the Bang Bang album and at that time they had quite a cult status in the scene. The only question is if this is the full show?
