Eddie & The Hotrods - Left Bank, Mt Vernon NY 1-21-81

Here's another Eddie & The Hotrods show. This one is a radio broadcast from a club near New York City and was recorded in the year they broke up. By the time this was recorded both Paul Gray and Graeme Douglas had left and instead of adding a second guitarist a keyboard player was added which contributed to a more subdued sound. However, there is still plenty of energy in their delivery making this show a very enjoyable listen and their set includes many songs from the Fish 'n' Chips album along with the expected hits.

Setlist: [from cassette tape]
01. Teenage Depression
02. Ties That Bind [Bruce Springsteen]
03. Wide Eyed Kids
04. We Want Mine [Crack The Sky]
05. Call It Quits
06. Unfinished Business
07. Time Won't Let Me [Outsiders]
08. Do Anything You Wanna Do
09. You Better Run [Young Rascals]
10. This Is Today [Max Bygrave]
11. The Beginning Of The End
12. Jumpin' Jack Flash [Rolling Stones]

Heroes - Max's, NYC 6-26-81 (w/Walter Lure)

After The Heartbreakers split at the end of 1977, Walter Lure played and recorded through the late 1970s and early 1980s with several bands including The Blessed and The Incognitos. Two songs he recorded in 1978 (Seven Day Weekend and Too Much Junkie Business) didn't get released on vinyl until 1983 under the band name The Heroes which at the time was his current band. The Heroes of 1983 never released anything but someone was nice enough to to make this audience recording of one of their gigs. A few Heartbreakers songs are played, a couple of covers and a pile of new songs, some of which were only released in the 1990s on the Waldos Rent Party CD and others remain unreleased. The band: Walter Lure - Guitar & Vocals, Richie Lure - Guitar & Vocals, Danny - Bass, Billy Rogers - Drums.
