This show has circulated under the following date: January 27, February 27,
February 28, February 1979 and March 1979.
This transfer comes from my 1st generation cassette I traded for in the
early-mid 80's via a Japanese trader. The date written on the tape sent to me
was 1979-03-02, 03-03.
I have found the following dates for the Japanese leg of the 1979 tour:
2/27/79 Budokan Hall, Tokyo, Japan
3/1/79 Kanagawa-Kenmin Hall, Kanagawa, Japan
3/2/79 Budokan Hall, Tokyo, Japan
3/3/79 Budokan Hall, Tokyo, Japan
3/5/79 Festival Hall, Osaka, Japan
I have a CDR copy of the show I traded for at some point dated February 28 but
it has a small amount of dialogue edited out and has some very hard/sloppy edits
as well as an overall harshness to the sound.
It appears to be unconfirmed if this show came from only the March 3rd
show or the March 2nd and 3rd show. I have listed it as March 2nd and
3rd due to the tape I received from the master.
There appear to be multiple versions circulating so hopefully this verified
lineage version will be an upgrade for some or a first copy for others who may
have missed any past versions.
I have not heard all versions circulating but this is excellent quality with
just a small touch of hiss between songs, it has a well balanced rich sound…
Linda really shines throughout as does her always excellent band, I'm
not sure I've heard her in better voice or with this much passion.
Great set, great show...
