Alex Chilton - Two 1977 NYC shows

EARLY, classic Alex Chilton live shows

Fab photos of LX in NYC by Stephanie Chernikowski
Alex Chilton
Max's Kansas City
New York, N.Y.
March 1977
audience recording (sound quality: GD+; not bad for a tape source of this vintage)
Note: first set only; second was either lost or not recorded

ROB SEZ: This is among the first LX solo shows (and earliest-known recordings thereof).  
Dig the punked-up version of "The Letter" included in this set.

BIG OL' THANKS to the taper and to 38f for sharing.

3. Can't Seem to Make You Mine
4. Way Out West
5. September Gurls
6. Shakin' the World

Alex Chilton
New York, N.Y.
Sept. 14, 1977

audience recording (sound quality: GNARLY)
"Gnarly" = more or less "Good," but that's it. "Listenable" (if you add air quotes), but sounding pretty much like a 40 year-old, multi-generation tape source with distortion and other issues much of the time. MY ADVICE: keep your expectations low, and you might actually enjoy the performance...
MUCHAS GRACIAS to The Big A for taping and to Lone Taper for sharing
