Good quality audience recording. Following the release of second album 'Rum, Sodomy and the Lash' The Pogues were breaking out of the cult status they'd enjoyed up until the autumn of 1985. One of their biggest shows to date (aside from playing Scunthorpe Free Rock in August...) was this Christmas gig at the Hammersmith Odeon, to which I travelled all the way from Cornwall. The band were on a roll at this point - tight through endless gigs, and before booze and internal tensions marred their creativity.
