Johnny Moped - Roxy, London 4-02-77

This show was recorded as part of the legendary The Roxy, London WC2 compilation album at the place where the Punk Rock thing found a permanent home for a while which really helped to get things rolling. Track 18 here is the version that appears on that album and the in-between song banter heard on the album before the song can be heard in context within the second set. This was recorded through the soundboard and is great sound quality. Gotta wonder why this whole show has never been released before especially when a couple (Buzzcocks, X Ray Spex, Adverts (?))other recordings from the same show have been.
