OK, this show causes a lot of debate among Banshees fans. It's been punted about claiming to be from 11 July 77 and also 5th September 77. They definitely played both dates, that's undisputed. These 2 shows I have are different sources, the second source being the better quality but the first source has Mirage and The Lord's Prayer. Also, the songs in source 2 are in a different running order. You can tell they're the same show by the in between song banter and certain crowd noises etc. I've posted both shows here with the date that I've always had attached. You can fight amongst yourselves as to the correct date as I gave up years ago.

I'd go for the 11th July 1977, I've had it on cassette since the late 80's, I wasn't even aware it'd circulated as a different date.

My copy of the Vortex gig is 7.11.77 as well.
I also have the Leeds 11.10.77, Chalk Farmhouse 12.11.77 and
Roxy 3.26.77 gigs too.
I AKJ... I can't speak for anybody else, but i've got those 3 '77 shows you mentioned, but perhaps someone else might be after them
