My friend "L" got these back in the late 70's from an insider who was in a band and knew the Heads. The first 6 tracks are a soundboard from a live gig. You can hear the audience between songs. The next 5 are from a studio recording. Sounds more polished than the 1975 demos posted earlier in the month. If these are out-takes or something else, please let me know.

Arcorman, 3 May 2012:

Above is the info from the original seeder ayarcy (many thanks !!!!) back in 2006.

The only thing I changed is that I wrote the time beside every track and mentioned which one is also live (76 or 77).

Im sure, that these live tracks are not from 1975, because of "New Feeling".

The quality of the first live tracks is different to the "Village Gate" gig. So it must be another gig.

I compared the demos "Im Not In Love" and "I Wish You...." with the released version, and beside of the differences in time, they are quite different.

In my opinion, the original seeder wasnt right, that the first 6 tracks (beside of the Kaufmann Demos) are SBD rec from an old gig.

If something could be a gig from SBD, then tracks 7 - 11, although I cannot hear any audience.......



"The Book I Read" (Track 9) has some kind of a saxophone.

Maybe it was a keyboard, but as I know , they played a gig in

Manhattan, Ocean Club 1976 as a trio with saxophone !!!!!!!!!

I have the complete gig in mp3 (fantastic sbd quality.......)
