The dB's - St. Louis, MO 1985 (FM)

Mississippi Nights
St. Louis, MO
March 1985 (exact date unknown)

FM recording (sound quality: VG+; only potential distraction is some recurring vocal distortion)

The dB's made a strategic decision in the 1980s 
to save money on haircuts & buy leather

SIGNIFICANT THANKS to the taper and to Glenn S for sharing

ROB SEZ: If you snag this one and give a listen, you'll not only hear an energetic club show with good sound quality, you'll also enjoy some rare gems — most notably the cover of "I Am the Cosmos", Big  Star founder Chris Bell's only solo single.
