Not only has JEMS taped more shows unofficially than most any group of tapers,
they also have a large collection of 1st gen cassettes of numerous shows
they've traded for through the years with other tapers.
This recording is one of those. This is a good to very good sounding recording but incomplete.
It is unknown if they played any other songs before Lava and after Planet Claire this night.
This show captures The B-52s touring in support of their Wild Planet album.
