Hi:

This may have been discussed. But two live releases suddenly popped up on Spotify.

The first is May 24, 1980, which has been a favorite show of mine forever. Better sound than the bootleg record I originally heard it on, and also subsequent tapes. You can very clearly hear Ike/Ray's guitar playing, which is usually mixed down. It is quite impressive here, as all songs are played at very high speed.

The second show is the seminal November 17, 1981 show.

Both have same style "cover" and use the fact that these originate from radio transmissions. Indeed sound is A, but weirdly all songs fade out, only to start at full volume as a short prelude to the next song in the show. That (horrid) detail made me think that this could not be legit.

But how the hell does these things get on Spotify?????

I've heard broadcasts where an announcer does his "You are listening to..." thing over top of the end of a song. Likely, the person readying the concert for release is removing those voice-overs.

Napster has had the November 1981 and April 1975 shows up for awhile now. They sound ok.
