review by DINO EVERETT

The recording is much longer than reported in Rise/Fall book.

This is a nice and clear audience recording of PiL's first visit to Minneapolis. The tape is much longer than the one reported in the Rise/Fall book and includes the encores. While the gig is nice and clear it is also a pretty smooth straightforward gig with no real problems to speak of. At one point after the first version of 'Public Image' John does call out a member of the audience but other than that he hardly speaks throughout the entire gig.

There are a few breaks in the tape but nothing seems lost or inserted. The first occurs after 'Attack' , then there is a fade after 'Mad Max' which is the end of side one of the tape. There is a small break after 'Death Disco' probably the taper just wanting to save tape since the band weren't even there at that point. There is another break after 'Low Life'. I should also point out that the first version of 'Public Image' has a very distracting delay on the vocals. Apparently the soundman was experimenting.
