The B-52's Live November 7 1980 - 16 Song Set

Postby 101Volts » Mon Jul 28, 2014 7:22 pm

A live recording has surfaced to the public. (I found it on a Facebook page.) It was at: "Capitol Theatre (Passaic, NJ)" and I'm guessing it was on a campus or near a high school judging by the clothing some of the crowd wore; I saw some guys in football uniforms, for example.

1: "Lava" (Played with one guitar, not two. I had the feeling this is how he played it.)
2: "Give Me Back My Man"
3: "6060-842" - (Played with an Epiphone.)
4: "Devil In My Car"
5: "52 Girls"
6: "Quiche Lorraine" (Dog-gone retribution, pun intended)
7: "Dirty Back Road"
8: "Private Idaho"
9: "Strobe Light"
10: "Runnin' Around"
11: "Rock Lobster" (Played on the blue MK V.)
12: "Dance This Mess Around" (Also played on the blue MK V.)
13: "Planet Claire"
14: "Party Out Of Bounds" (Played on the double-neck!)
15: "Downtown"
16: "53 Miles West Of Venus"

Yep. You get video footage of 53 Miles West of Venus, one of the B's numbers I was wondering if they ever played live. Ricky played it a bit differently than I thought he would've done in this performance; Although I got the E-E-D-D-C-C-D-D notes right (before the chorus) I wasn't playing them on the same string.

Well this is a grand recording, now next on the B-52's list can we get some video footage of "There's A Moon In The Sky (Called The Moon)"? That's played with two guitars but the part that sounds like an airplane taking off is all Ricky (even though the second guitar is also playing at that part.)
