Radar Station Overview

Recorded live at The Country Club, Reseda, California on 29th January, 1981 (apart from the last two tunes which are taken from rare singles).

An excellent quality recording probably from the soundboard? There was talk about this show having been recorded legitimately for a possible release … and it could also have been filmed!!

This is a US(?) bootleg with a deluxe colour cover featuring a Clear Spot period ‘top hat’ photo and Van Vliet drawing on the front, a late 70s promo shot of Don on the back, and has blue/white labels.

One of the better vinyl bootleg releases.

BBYBACK

You can read a review for this show from the 27th February 1981 edition of ‘BAM’. The last two tunes are legitimately available on the Dust Blows Forward compilation.

Releases:

  • 198? US double vinyl on God’s Golfball Records DON-12981
