  • This same recording/set circulates as 06/11/83 Lausanne...early SY shows are often mislabeled, but it seems more likely to me that THIS date is incorrect, as it is so soon after the Minneapolis show (and possibly other Midwest dates were played), and I'm not aware of Bert playing a local gig w/ the band after returning from the Swans tour. I'm quite close to removing this one altogether...Although, a photograph captioned "CBGB November 1982" does appear in Goodbye 20th Century, so who knows....
  • There's also a 12/17/83 CBGB show, with a gig poster and photograph to match -- unfortunately the photograph doesn't appear to be from the same show as below, so it's still up for debate. Overall, I doubt the existance of 12/17/82...
