Ultravox - Paradise Theatre, Boston: March 3rd 1979

Number three of five, and the second night at the Paradise Theatre in Boston.

Although this one is not the same quality as the previous radio recording it's well worth having, as it contains the first airing and recording of the song "Radio Beach" (which I don't think is available on any studio recording - anyone?). This version is a little ramshackle but if you do like it, there's a better version coming in the next post.

So leave a comment and tell ASFM what you think of Radio Beach, and the rest of this gig.

If you like this, and you haven't got their first three albums, then you're like this compilation of tracks from them, and at only £2.48, how can you go wrong?

To the first anon I am not aware of any demo sessions, although all of the reissued first three albums have extra tracks of unreleased stuff. Which pisses me of as I bought the albums first time round, then the CD's and now they reissue them again.

I'm with you there Arstider, Mr Foxx is the man.

I hpoe you like it Novemberer.

Thanks for the Cheers anon

Radio Beach was never released in any form elsewhere. I saw them on this tour (in Grinnell IA opening for the Police, they blew them off the stage) and they did it there. I looked for it ever since and finally got it in a trade (one of the shows you have here, I'd need to go look) a year or so ago. It's not a great song, but a good one. I'm kind of amazed that John didn't even use the music for something.

Hi Eric, thanks for the comment. I agree its a good song and not a great one, but its always special for people to hear something new.
