Nervous Eaters - WCOZ, Boston 7-23-78 + Demo

 Here's a great live show from a  great band. Nervous Eaters at the time of this recording has 2 single out and were Boston favorites. They released one album in 1980 before disappearing from the scene. Before they got the record deal for the album they recorded a 10 song demo for the record company and I think the demo of Last Chance is one of those songs. The live show is a radio broadcast and is great quality as is the demo. From cassette tape.

Neighborhoods - Paradise, Boston 12-27-79

Before the Neighborhoods were famous they were just another band from Boston slugging it out in the clubs of that city. In 1979 they released a now classic single. Their next release wasn't until 5 years later. They eventually released 4 albums and one 12" ep. This live show was recorded not too long after their first single was released and both songs are played along with some that never got released at all. This is either a soundboard recording or radio broadcast and the quality is great.
