Track D2 recorded live Nov 22 1977 at the Hope and Anchor in Islington, London - an important mid-70s live venue for (first) pub rock and (later) punk bands. A series of recordings from around this time resulted in this album: http://www.discogs.com/Various-Hope-Anchor-Front-Row-Festival/master/194567
