The B-52’s: Live! 8.24.1979 CD

Best to let the band itself describe this live album, which is only the second B-52’s concert recording and the only one to capture them during their early years: “We opened for the Talking Heads at the Berklee Center in Boston just six weeks after our first record was released. We were a little scared of the audience so we kept our heads down and focused – and we danced like mad when there was a break! Ricky was so fierce on the guitar – so intense – it was all so raw and live and we loved it.” Now, Real Gone Music is very proud to present this key live document of one of America’s most beloved and distinctive New Wave groups on CD for the first time, complete with liner notes by Jason Gross featuring fresh quotes from the band members and rare photos. From “Rock Lobster” to “Private Idaho,” you WILL dance this mess around when you hear this, we promise!
