Lou's still in a playful mood, and the band are as tight as a duck's arse. 1980 was a Presidential election year in the USA, and Lou conducts a quick straw poll of the audience's views before declaring his own candidancy for the Presidency on the "rock and roll" ticket. He enthusiastically goes on to nominate the band as his cabinet. Lou's never been shy about talking politics during US election years - listen to him pushing Ted Kennedy during "Street Hassle" ("If I was him I would blow up the (Chappaquiddick) bridge ").This is another great low-generation stereo audience tape, probably from the same source as the extant recording of the early show. The audience are very appreciative, but again, that only adds to the atmosphere. Unfortunately there is an annoying low-level "hum" present throughout most of this copy of the tape (it goes away just before "Street Hassle"). It's really only audible between songs.Scans included with torrent files:#1: Lou in "fat Elvis" mode onstage at the Bottom Line 02 June 1980 (photo by Bob Dillingham?)#2: "Lou's Ace" review (of the 01 June 1980 early show?) by Mike Nicholls, Record Mirror, London, 14 June 1980Distribute widely but do not sell!Give copies to all your friends!
