Of the few live Joy Division recordings that exist out there, this is easily one of the best. The set was recorded on January 11, 1980 at Amsterdam's Paradiso Club, apparently to just a handful of dedicated fans. Despite the low turnout, the fans who did make it out were rewarded with an incredible 70-minute set containing many Joy Division favorites performed all the way live with a raw energy you must hear to believe. Check the intensity on the live versions of tracks like "Transmission," "Digital," and "Disorder," plus "A Means To An End," "These Days," and the timeless "Love Will Tear Us Apart." Pressed on 140g clear vinyl and limited to 500 copies only! Recommended.
