A short but sweet set from Television.   Their first Detroit appearance, opening for Peter Gabriel, on his first solo tour.
Yes,  that's booing you're hearing...a prog. rock crowd sitting
through a set by what they percieved as a 'punk' band from New York.
Television were a surprise opening act. We expected a opening band, we just didn't know it was going to be them until they were introduced, luckily I was set up to tape whoever it was going to be.



  1. Fantastic - and a JEMS recording to boot, which always seem to be top-quality; he also taped the classic Dr Feelgood Detroit 10.03.76 gig that's been posted here:

    And another Television audience recording has just surfaced, this time from 2001 at the beginning of the second reunion of the band. This was the original line-up including Richard Lloyd who would leave in 2007 and be replaced by Jimmy Ripp. Get it over here with thanks to SilentWay:

    Cheers and thanks a million! Dave Sez.

  2. A stunning recording and a stunning performance - the album Marquee Moon in all its glory, but live - this rates as the best recording I have received in 30 years. Amazing ... Dave Sez.

  3. Vintage Television 1977 should be enough, a great recording even more, and top versions of classic tracks even more so ... I have waited nearly thirty years to hear this .. and morons don't care, just another track.

    The gold dust I have hoped for even since 1977 (and yes, I was alive and adult then)

    Is the web populated by morons or what?!!! Why doesn't any one answer? Because it's pearls before swine ...
