Notes:

One of the singular most unique shows in the collection. Features early versions of a few songs and the only known recorded performance of DEVO's alter-ego, DOVE. "Jesus" is "Beulah" with Jesus' name substituted for every instance of Beulah's. Also includes first performance of "Fountain of Filth" and only performance of "U Got Me Bugged".

Review:

This show is a blast to listen to, especially Dove's religion-injected renditions of classic tunes. Whoever recorded it was smart to record Dove. Though the audio quality is a bit rough, this is most definitely an essential show to have. We're working on getting a higher-quality recording.
