Fantastic quality audience recording from taper who must have been on stage. The first song has Nick Cave singing with opening band Malaria!
Nick's between song banter is particularly amusing and this show has a different feel to it than the dozens of other Birthday Party shows I've heard. The person that traded me this 2nd gen tape 20+ years ago split last song, She's Hit, into two overlapping parts as all didn't fit on A-side. I pieced together seemlessly so that entire songs flows without interruption albeit over two tracks.
