B-52's "Live! 8.24.1979" Gold LP (RSD 2015)
Details: Small bump to record cover corner, bottom left corner, otherwise very minimal wear on cover (VG++). Released on Record Store Day "Black Friday" 2015. Recorded live at The Berklee Performance Center, Boston. Limited to 2500 copies pressed on gold vinyl. Vinyl looks pristine, B-side label looks as though a sticker may have been placed on it previously (see images). Rare find.
Description: "In April 2015, the band rewarded their longtime fans with a rare gem: the release of a special early show from August 1979, pulled from deep within the Warner Brothers vault. They noted, “We opened for the Talking Heads at the Berklee Center in Boston just six weeks after our first record was released. We were a little scared of the audience so we kept our heads down and focused - and we danced like mad when there was a break! Ricky was so fierce on the guitar - so intense - it was all so raw and live.”
As they take their party-music revolution into the 21st century the B-52s show no signs of slowing down, serving up their own unique blend of music and showmanship to millions of fans around the world."
