The most famous (and infamous) band of the late 70s British punk scene. Their rebellious image combined with a commercial sound (partly thanks to producer Chris Thomas) created some of the most memorable moments of the 70s - both musical and otherwise. Line-up: Johnny Rotten (John Lydon, b. January 31, 1956 - vocals), Steve Jones (b. September 3, 1955 - guitar), Glen Matlock (b. August 27, 1956 - bass) and Paul Cook (b. July 20, 1956 - drums). In February 1977, Matlock was replaced by Sid Vicious (John Ritchie aka John Beverley, b. May 10, 1957). The band effectively split up after their 1978 US tour, although Jones and Cook continued to record under the name for another year or so.
The original line-up reformed in 1996 for a series of concert tours, and has played live shows off and on since then, and released live recordings.

Track A1 is an original radio advertisement for the concert (not listed on the cover).
Recorded on January 10th, 1978 - NOT 1977 as the cover states.
This is the first pressing of the record, with the cover printed on a piece of paper and glued to a generic white sleeve. The second pressing had a red cover. The pressing will have the cover shown here and say "Printed in England" on the side.
There is a discrepancy regarding the disc labels. Some versions of the release may come with Ruthless Rhymes labels, while others (like the one pictured here) might have Slipped Disc Records labels.
