Notes: The last show of this spring leg of the 1980 U.S. tour, then it was off to Europe for some dates and they wouldn't go back until 1984. Interestingly the band played the Spectrum on May 7, then traveled to New Haven, then came back to the Spectrum for this gig. It's Alex's birthday this night.
Not a great recording, but not all together unenjoyable once you adjust your "bootleg ears."
A bit of a rarity, not traded very heavily back in the day.
