Thanks Smile

There are better quality versions of this gig available on-line but Ghost Town isn't included on any I've seen so far?

Hi Sugarman,

Apologies, been too busy to reply or any add details which I'll do tomorrow when I post another August 1981 concert.

This is (I think!) a different version from the Paramount Theatre boot that already exists. Much poorer quality but includes Chang Kai Shek & Ghost Town.

I'm not 100% sure but I think Horace mentioned listening to a bootleg of the Bradford Hotel Ballroom, Boston show on his book, which was the last ever gig. Maybe it was another gig. It's that long since I read the book I would need to check to confirm.

If It's another 81 US gig it could be New York Pier 51, Pasadena CA, Long Island NY Or Boston Last Ever Gig? Fingers Crossed? Smile
