Hi Ian S,

I had the whole gig on my old computer, but sadly lost it. For me that WAS Roxy Music. If anyone can get the gig, have a listen and enjoy.

Cheers,
Zappa.

Great, thank you, Ian, for posting the link. I have the entire show but until now I've never listened to it. I'm so greedily downloading all live recordings I can get my hands on that I'm not really able to process all that input. :oops:

I think the show is still availabale on Wolfgang's Vault. Great song, one of my favorites. Pity Viva! wasn't a double album.

i think it was originally going to be a double. The story I heard was that Andy wanted the whole Wembley 1975 show released as a double. Bryan wanted a selection of songs from different stages of the band's evolution. The complete Wembley 1975 show would have had loads of songs from Siren, which would have made it slightly unbalanced . So we got Viva. What is interesting is that Viva contained nothing from the Eno days and no Andy songs.
