Does anyone know why the front cover picture is actually from a different gig?

Definitely one of the greatest live albums. Captures the energy of the Ramones at their best with original drummer Tommy Ramone. You can definitely tell the difference between this and their later live albums where the tempo increased but the melodies disappeared. Although after 2263 gigs in 22 years of playing nearly the same setlist you can understand why. The cd version is the bees knees for me, because you can listen to the whole concert as one performance and skip some of the slower/weaker songs if you want (Surfing Bird anybody). Highlights are the seamless Havana Affair/Commando/ Here Today... with barely time for a 1234 before they're thrashing out the next song, Chainsaw/ Today Your Love... which are catchy as hell (I especially love that DeeDee and Johnny play an octave apart to make the simple chords sound more melodic), and the Suzy/Judy combo is about to blow the stadium roof off. 5 STARS!
