  1. I have seen it mentioned that the Golders Green show is from around February-78 because of TR's in-concert references. I've also seen it listed as 9th Jan-78 as well, this second date would have coincided with the recording of the "don't take no for an answer ep", which is mentioned by TR and was released in Feb-78. There is also a BBC Transcription disk of a Be Bop Deluxe show at the Hippodrome listed as from 19-1-78 which I think has the TR show on the b-side
    there you go, mystery unsolved!


  2. The Tom Robinson Band played some great gigs around this period, Tom was on form, the band were on form, the time was just right. Shame everything started to fall apart in '79 but nothing good lasts forever.

    Excellent work Bat29 for keeping the good stuff alive.
