radio birdman Live At Paddington Town Hall 12th Dec. 1977 (CD + DVD, £16.75)label: citadel
This 19-track release engenders a previously unreleased live concert recorded at Paddington Town Hall (Sydney, Australia) in December 1977 onto 16-track tape just prior to the band's departure for the UK to promote the Sire release of their 'Radios Appear' album. This live recording has been mixed from master tapes that have languished forgotten for decades. The result is a totally wild and raw release that captures the band's true primal energy perhaps in a way that other recordings haven't. The songs represent a wide selection of their originals along with covers of Blue Oyster Cult, MC5 and Bo Diddley. Disc 2 is a DVD featuring 6 tracks recorded at Paddington Town Hall Dec. '77 and April '77, Macquarie University '76 and a promotional video of 'Aloha Steve & Danno'.
