One of the first Duran Duran bootlegs and probably the most interesting of the early ones, as it apparently contains the earliest complete live recording of their career and features a couple of rarely captured live versions.

Source: As correctly listed on the cover, audience recording from the Hammersmith Odeon in London on 9 July, 1981 on their Faster Than Light tour.

Side 1: Tel Aviv (intro) / I Got My Own Way / Girls On Film / Late Bar / To The Shore     
Side 2: Faster Than Light / Khanada / Night Boat / Planet Earth
