RE-UPLOAD: Ghost Dance - N.E. London Polytechnic, London, UK (First Gig Ever!!!) - 29.11.1985 (Flac)
Huge Thanks to Egg_Crisis for this excellent share. The band plays a version of TSOM Poison Door.
Their first gig, and one of only two gigs they played in 1985. An excellent audience recording (the recording levels were a fraction too high, but that doesn't matter so much with analogue recordings... and a nice loud recording means no hiss). Because the levels were still nice and high this is probably low gen. I only ever saw this at a record fair once and if the person selling the tapes had the master this could be as low as 1st gen, but that's being optimistic, 2nd gen might be a more realistic guess. Also it's a generation better than one commonly circulating version which came from a copy of my copy.
