Hey there, first post. I've been fan since I was about 8-9 years old, (so about 20 years now) but never got too deep into the tape trading scene or really explored this era too much.

I'm looking for live stuff with that Shakedown Street, disco sort of sound from 78-82 - more specifically reminiscent of the tunes on Dead Set like "Brokedown Palace" and "Candyman". So I guess that would be even more specifically described as slow tempo, focused (mostly) ballads with the Dead Set and/or Shakedown Street aesthetic. For the record, I have always loved "France" from that album and have to come clean and say I also dig "If I had the world to give", especially the solo about halfway through. *ducks*

Thanks for reading and appreciate any suggestions.

I don't think they ever played France live, and If I had The World To Give, just 3 times, I believe.

I would also recommend you utilize this site

http://setlist.com/

here you can search for shows with specific songs in specific date ranges. Then once found, head on over to archive.org and check it out.

I would most certainly get the following shows from 80 and 81:

4/28/80 aud
5/10/80 aud
8/19/80
9/2/80
11/30/80
12/12-13-14/80

Also, 12/26 and 28 are up on you tube


For 81;

3/9 and 10
3/13
12/9


And a whole lot more
