Geetarz Comments:

After the end of the US leg of the 1979 tour ended in June, EC felt that his band had become "stale" and set out to recruit a new group of musicians. 

Whereas earlier in the decade EC made a conscious decision to recruit American musicians, at the end EC went full circle, with his new "English Band".

After rehearsals, the new group played 2 debut concerts, one in Surrey on September 7th (no known recording of this show exists), and this, the second, a week before the European tour began.

The crowd was loud and boisterous, calling out to the band, and in many ways the feel of the gig is very intimate, more like a club show in some ways than a medium size hall gig.

It's a fun show, and an important document of one of the milestone changes in EC's career, albeit one that slipped in like a thief in the night.
