This show happened exactly 25 years ago today and is posted to mark that anniversary. It's a stunning soundboard recording of the second of the Ramones' four 'comeback' shows in London. The band hadn't visited Britain for a few years, and their then-current LP 'Too Tough to Die' had initially only been available in Britain as an import. The four shows at The Lyceum proved the band was still a big draw over here (as if anyone should have doubted that...). This set is incomplete, missing about six songs, presumably due to the need to fit tracks onto the bootleg LP 'Return to London' from which this was originally recorded. I have an audience tape from the following night which has a complete - and longer - set-list. Some of the songs from these Lyceum shows (possibly from this night, given that it's a soundboard recording) turned up a few years back on the bonus 'Smash You Live in London' CD which accompanied the 'Their Toughest Hits' compilation album. The sound on this upload is sharper than the 'Smash You' CD which was a little muddy.
