First off I've posted this in this section as I guess it's the right one?
A post I started off on gigs has disappeared...if it was pulled I've checked the rules not sure there's any I'm breaking? Torrent sites like dime host gigs that strictly have not been officially released and the people who seed them (not me, just downloaded them, and on liking them, want to direct Iggy fans to more of his great music!) don't profit from it.
Dime also *very quickly* remove any officially released music.
This gig has quite a rough guitar sound...having enjoyed some, erm, I guess more sophisticated sounding (for lack of a better word) gigs from 1979 like the late November gigs at LA and SF, this gig took me quite a few numbers for me to start to appreciate it.
There are several Stooges numbers, as you will see...and at this moment, listening to Batman, good stuff!

Excellent audience recording from the start of the New Values tour. I got the original cassette back in '82 or '83.
Unlike the Hartford show this runs at the correct speed :-)
All trackmarking was done on the Philips CDR unit, not the PC, but all of it seems to be pretty accurate.
This was a great little tour, by the time the US tour started at the end of '79 the band had changed (as had the attitude)
and those shows have a completely different feel.
This is a tight band and the setlist has a generous sprinkling of Stooges material amongst the New Values songs.
I'm pretty sure this won't have been on Dime before, but if it has, for those who don't have it, enjoy...
