Two shows for the price of one download.
This package is a combination of two FM Broadcasts
that I transfered awhile back for a friend and myself.
I dug it out the other day and decided it was worth sharing.
I recorded the 1984 show, and my friend recorded the 1987 show.
I asked my friend why "Message of Love" was cut off,
and he does not remember (Imagine that! It's only been twenty years).
The setlist for the 1987 show lists "The Adultress" after "Message of Love".
Obviously, it didn't get recorded.
I had to put the first four tracks of the 1987 show on Disc One
to conserve space.

Anyway, these are two splendid sounding, rocking shows.
The 1987 show sounds better, but they both jam.
I whipped up some artwork on Nero.
This is a must have for all fans of The Pretenders!

Enjoy all.
