Secret Affair - University Of Bristol, Bristol England 2-11-80

Recently, while going through my music files, I discovered that I have this show twice from two different sources and with two different track lists. So, I edited them together into one long, more complete, show. There's also a third source out there with one other song I don't have - - does anyone have this one? This is a radio broadcast and the sound quality is excellent.

***Thanks to Pip the third source has been acquired and the missing song added.
