Rockpile 1979 07 20 Louisville Gardens board tape first time in circulation
rockpile 1979 07 20 Gardens, Louisville, KY
This particular show comes courtesy of a generous benefactor who has requested that it be made available for Rockpile fans.
The source tape is a cassette of what appears to be the PA feed recorded by the sound man at the mixing desk - sadly the person running the tape saw fit to use only one side of the cassette so the show is incomplete.
Although having the appearance of a stereo recording I believe this to be mono only.
Nick Lowe: vocals, bass
Dave Edmunds: vocals, guitar
Billy Bremner: guitar, vocals
Terry Williams: drums
