Television - This Case Is Closed 1978

This is Television live at The Bottom Line Club in New York back on the 29th July 1978. This concert has been circulated as 'The First Farewell' and 'This Case Is Closed' both suggesting and confirming the historical nature of this gig, as it was indeed the final live concert of Television until 1992. At the time it was of course unknown if the band would perform or record again. The source of this recording is from the linage that led to 'This Case Is Closed' which suffers a little in the early stage from level adjustments, but is compensated by perhaps one of the best live recordings of the classic song Marquee Moon ever captured. Source: Soundboard. Sound Quality: Very Good (some audio level adjustments noticeable on second track), mp3@320kbps. Genre: Punk Rock, New Wave. Set: Full Set. Set List: 1.Fire Engine 2. Glory 3. Grip of Love 4. Foxhole 5. The Dream's Dream 6. Ain't That Nothin' 7. Friction 8. Prove It 9. Marquee Moon 10. Kingdom

Television - Double Exposure

This is two demo recording sessions from Television in 1974 & 1975. The bands highly acclaimed debut album 'Marquee Moon' was released in 1977 (Elektra Records) and was very successful in Europe however failed to enter the Billboard 200 in the USA. Both sessions were included on the bootleg 'Double Exposure' which surfaced in Italy (No Label No. DE-92-SC), and was first released in 1992. The original bootleg included three live tracks from CBGB's in 1975, that are missing from this version. The Television 1974 demos were recorded at Good Vibrations Studios in NYC with Richard Hell on bass, and produced by Brian Eno and Richard Williams of Island Records. The August 1975 demos were recorded with Fred Smith on bass and were part of the session for Terry Ork of Ork Records which produced Television's first single "Little Johnny Jewel" (Ork, 1975, included on expanded re-issue of Marquee Moon). It is fascinating listening to the early versions
