Public Image Ltd.: (This Is Not A) Love Song [1983]

Taken from Live In Tokyo.

This from
"With Keith Levene & Pete Jones' departure, PiL found themselves without a band for the upcoming Japanese tour. As a panic measure musicians were hired from auditions by Bob Miller and Martin Atkins. The line-up of Louis Bernardi (bass), Joseph Guida (guitar) & Tommy Zvoncheck (keyboards) – often dubbed the "Cabaret Band" – had no real experience outside the New Jersey bar scene. Atkins is so concerned with the new band's image he persuades them to wear cabaret suits!
'Live in Tokyo' was one of the first digital live albums ever recorded (if not the first). The gigs were recorded on a Mitsubishi X-800 32ch tape recorder. At the time there were only three in existence and the cutting edge of musical technology."
