Comments:
Cover art says 1978, but this is a document of Patti's notorious April 1979 Rockpalast appearance. Listed sometimes as April 22, 1979. There is some tape hiss, and plenty of dropouts scattered here and there, but still eminently worth having, and pretty good sounding overall too! Patti was her usual antagonistic self, admonishing the crowd to "stop acting like assholes and sit the fuck down" and asking them to not harm the cameramen helping to beam her performance to millions.
