BILLY BRAGG - Hamburg, Grosse Freiheit 36, 8 December 1988

This is Billy Bragg's show at Grosse Freiheit 36 in Hamburg, Germany on 8 December 1988. The sound is pretty raw but the recording captures the energy and audience excitement of the show perfectly. Please check the sample!

This was the first Billy Bragg gig I attended and luckily I found a tape of the concert a few months later at a record fair in Hamburg. A few seconds of "Levi Stubbs' Tears" are missing.
