Do not sell this recording.
Share freely, losslessly and gaplessly.
they played several shows in this location from late 1977 through 1978,
probably 2 shows each night (with seperate admissions)
because TH became popular in this area very early on,
so they kept coming back here like a very loyal friend,
and playing inspired, fun shows that they seemed to enjoy.
this sounds like it could be close to a full set, missing the
opening few seconds of Warning Sign, probably for flipping the master cassette over
when the recording was originally made.
by this time some shows were a little longer,
but if there were 2 shows and an opening band for each one
which was standard procedure at this time at the Paradise with bands this popular,
this is quite likely almost the full set. (early or late? which one, who knows?
eventually it may be figured out, depending on how many show dates can be confirmed.)
