B-52's - Montego Bay Jamaica 1982

You may have noticed that Beehive Candy owes something to the B-52's with our picture of Kate Pierson complete with 'Beehive' hairstyle residing alongside our 'music sharing policy'.

Therefore it's about time we gave them some coverage musically and this is a solid performance from the band back in 1982.

The band were taking part in the Jamaica world music festival and this concert was performed at The Bob Marley Performing Arts Centre in Montego Bay on the 25th November 1982.

The recording starts with the first song fading in and I am not sure if this was the first song of the performance, however it is likely as they were one of many acts on that night, and the running time seems about right.

The band stick close to the studio versions of material in this concert which is quite challenging as the arrangements are quite intricate despite the catchy nature of their music. There is some wonderful passion in 'give me back my man' and and if I am not mistaken they took advantage of a horn section here and there.

Thank you for the B 52's. Planet Claire is one of my all-time favourite song.
