Various - Stiffs Live Stiffs download album

Live Stiffs Live is a live album released in 1978 by Stiff Records. It compiles concert performances by several of the record label's artists recorded during the "Live Stiffs Tour", which ran from 3 October to 5 November 1977. Among the recording artists featured on the album are Elvis Costello and the Attractions, Ian Dury & the Blockheads, Nick Lowe, Wreckless Eric, and Larry Wallis

Live LP taken from the "Stiffs Live Stiffs" Tour, recorded on the Rak Mobile at The University of East Anglia, Norwich, Leicester University and The Lyceum, London. Nick Lowe, Wreckless Eric and Larry Wallis are backed by a core group of tour musicians, including some members of The Attractions and The Blockheads. For example, Ian Dury plays drums for Wreckless Eric. On the last track, Ian Dury & The Blockheads are joined on stage by various other tour musicians. Front cover is laminated.

The Live Stiffs shows became notorious for their intoxicatingly (and intoxicated) ragged performances, which the live album Live Stiffs captures particularly well.

Nick Lowe's Last Chicken In The Shop. 538 Dance Smash 2015 Vol. 1 '2015. Deutsche Musikalische Palette '2015. Those Were The Days: The Good Life '2015.

So, consequently, we have the infamous "Live Stiffs" package tour of 1977, and the album o. .containing at least five pub rock legends. Luckily Nick Lowe improved vastly after the demise of the awful Brinsley Schwartz. Ian Dury became the poet laureate of the new wave. Wreckless Eric was a loveable drunk who made a fine debut album. Larry Wallis was in The Deviants, Pink Fairies, and Motorhead,among others, so he can't do wrong.
