Thanks for this. Did you know that the 10mb jpg is embedded in each of the mp3's, making the archive 70 megs larger than it needs to be?

It's great though, been looking for this for ages.

So what. The cover is a beautiful pic taken of the band taken in front of Wax Trax records in Denver where they played in May of 1978.

Make it May of 1977 that they played in Denver. Upstairs at the record store Wax Trax. Couldn't make it down from Boulder that night but had several friends who went.

"A second show, about a month later, featuring a power pop trio from LA, The Nerves, was more successful (Jim had secured the proper documents this time.) They arrived 30-45 minutes late but it was well worth the delay. As they made their entrance up the fire escape, they walked in with their Beatle haircuts, three piece tan suits, plugged in their guitars and won over the small crowd with their infectious, power pop gems. Two of their songs, "Hanging on the Telephone" and "Will Anything Happen" were covered by Blondie on their breakthrough (sold in excess of 20 million copies) album "Parallel Lines" in 1978. What a wonderful, life changing experience that was for me."
