RAMONES - 'Undisclosed Location, Long Island, NY, July 20th, 1982, perfect FM'

Without certainly knowing them all, it is pretty safe to say that this probably is the best and most energetic live recording of the Ramones ever.

To quote one of the 7" bootlegs (a fake Japanese one, in fact): "The Ramones are so punky - you just have to react!" I couldn't agree any more.

The concert was originally broadcast (live?) on WLIR Radio (for which the band stressed to play "exclusively").

For the purpose of sharing, it was recorded by my humble self off the LP bootleg that I own and of which I am including an image.

There is at least one other LP bootleg version of the show plus a bootleg CD by the name of "The Chinese Wall" (1991), that has a different tracklist (see below) and, what's much more more important, sounds comparably shitty.

If anyone has the complete show in perfect (i.e. sounding like my recording ;-)) quality, please let me know, or better yet, share it!
