      Anyone got this yet? Thinkin' of picking it up... Here's a review from Slovenly.com:

       

      Double-lp set of 21 songs, including an incredible 13-song live set recorded in 1979 with professional mixes for WPIX-FM NYC with full sonic assault! Probably the best Cramps live performance and recording ever, with Bryan & Ivy's guitars complimenting each other most brilliantly, Nick Knox's drumming is superb, and Lux providing great vocals and between-song banter. The version of "Human Fly" is like an a-bomb exploding in your living room! The top-quality sound on the 8 demos that complete this swank double LP have previously appeared on 1 or 2 reissues with inferior sound quality so get ready to hear them properly. Very de-LUX foldout gatefold sleeve filled with over 20 unknown photos from 1977-1979 plus 2 great interviews from early & obscure magazines. Club 57, NYC - 1979 - LIVE: 1. MYSTERY PLANE 2. DOMINO 3. TWIST AND SHOUT 4. WEEKEND ON MARS 5. VOODOO IDOL 6. ZOMBIE DANCE 7. ROCKIN’ BONES 8. HUMAN FLY 9. GARBAGEMAN 10. I WAS A TEENAGE WEREWOLF 11. SUNGLASSES AFTER DARK 12. T.V. SET 13. THE WAY I WALK. Studio demos - JUNE 1977: 14. LOVE ME 15. I WAS A TEENAGE WEREWOLF 16. SUNGLASSES AFTER DARK 17. T.V. SET 18. WHAT’S BEHIND THE MASK. Studio demos - FEBRUARY 1979: 19. TWIST and SHOUT 20. ROCKIN’ BONES 21. MAD DADDY. (Moonlight)

      I picked it up about a year ago , when it came out. The review is right on the money.

      I didn't realize it was a show I already had , but I only had it on a cassette that Wax Trax in Chicago used to sell in the 80's. It is a great show , and the sound is great , so I was glad to get it on vinyl , plus the packaging is superb....The demos , I already had , too , but , it was a fine way to fill out two LPs.

      I don't know that it's their best , but , I'm sure it's way up there.... Itwas a live radio broadcast , which accounts for the above - average sound.
