Minutemen - KPFK, Los Angeles 1982 + 1985

Both of these are radio broadcasts and have excellent sound quality. Two songs, tracks 2 and 16, from the 1982 show were officially released in 1984 on The Politics Of Time LP. The 1985 broadcast is the complete show but there is a tape flip after Cheerleaders  so a second or two of the beginning of Maybe Partying Will Help is missing. Can anyone fill in the song titles?

Dr. Know - demo + Live 1983

Dr. Know was a hardcore band from Los Angeles. The demo has very good sound quality and the Cathay show is an audience recording with good sound quality. Both of these recordings were on the ends of tapes and neither is complete. I think the demo might have been released on their Best of album. Anyone know? Can anyone fill in the song titles.

T.S.O.L. - Demo 1980 + Live 1981

The demo is a muddy copy but still sounds pretty good. The City Gardens show came without a specific date but I have a copy of this same recording, from a few years ago, that is dated November 7, 1981. That copy and this copy are the same up to the song Word Is but on the other tape that song fades out and then versions of Silent Scream and Code Blue are played. The versions of those songs on that tape are different from the versions on this tape. So, it seems, someone added those on from a different source. This is the complete version of this show.. It's a soundboard recording and the sound quality is excellent.

@ Demo 1980:
01. 80 Times
02. Superficial Love
03. You Don't Have To Die
04. Silent Majority
@ City Gardens, Trenton NJ 11-07-81: [from cassette tape]
