***They played their first gig as 'Joy Division' at Pip's Disco in Manchester on the 25th of January 1978. I still can't believe that they played from Jan - Dec in 1978 and yet not one single bootleg has ever emerged.

I think Peter Hook or Bernard Sumner or Rob Gretton (passed away) may have the live recordings in 1978.

I own the first press of An Ideal For Living. It is the most expensive vinyl I ever paid for.

Really ??? gotta look that one up....well done on the Ideal for Living !!!

wait....you mean Jan 1978 to Dec 1978 ?? 12 fricking months and not one show has appeared...

but then again they weren't "Joy Division" yet...their Peel Sessions were what 1979 ?? and the Festive Fifty was 1980 onwards...so maybe no cared...

cheers !!!
thank you !!!

It is true that there is no live recording of Joy Division in 1978 circulated among the fans. But I believe that someone has the recording and keep it in the store room or basement.
The earliest live recording of JD /Warsaw circulated is from 14 Sept 1977, Rock Garden, Middlesborough, leaked out by Peter Hood some years ago.

I don't see the point of locking these things away forever....most bands must have interesting archive shows that are just sitting around gathering cobwebs....RELEASE THEM!!!!
