About this item

This collection comprises of four revolutionary live recordings– all officially sanctioned by the Sex Pistols and professionally mastered at Abbey Rd Studios and released in full for the first time on CD and LP format. Disc one features the truly legendary Lesser Free Trade Hall, Manchester concert, which took place on 4th June, 1976, arguably one of the most important music concerts ever. The second disc comprises the ‘Midnight Special’ concert, which was recorded on 29th August, 1976 at Screen on the Green, Islington - More widely known for its cult cinema screenings. This famous gig saw the Pistols supported by The Clash and Buzzcocks. Disc three is the live show that took place at Chelmsford Maximum Security Prison on 17th September 1976. Of the four recordings that make up this collection, this was the only one ‘officially’ recorded on 4 track ¼ inch tape, by the band’s live soundman Dave Goodman. The collection is completed with a concert that originally made its way around as a fans bootleg, recorded on 25th September – 1976: 76 Club, Burton on Trent, officially released in full for the first time.

STAFF COMMENTS

Andy says: The Pistols' live BOMB, putting to bed, if it was ever needed, the Malcom McClaren generated myth that the band couldn't actually play. Tell that to Steve Jones, pal! Forty years on and you have an historical document of one of the most influential and important bands of all time.
