Now I'm torn between the dairy or the bakery.


I've found that one of the best bakeries is Baker's Delight. For a chain store, they're FUCKING GOOD.

Zuh? I mean, it's a bit of a silly lyric, but there's much, much worse elsewhere. Looking at you, "with a mouth full of teeth, you ate all your friends".
No, he means that's the Frogger lyric.

I still find I get the best veges from a real vege store, and the best meat from my old mate The Mad Butcher.

I was kinda surprised they put out Sometimes as a single... that and Stuck. I guess if Bono likes wearing his heart and deepest anguish on his sleeve, might as well make a buck out of it as well.

I guess so. I was going to mention Stuck as well, but at least that song wasn't about his dad, nor was it sung at Hutch's funeral either. I don't know



MOTHERFUCKER! I forgot about All Because of You...that seriously hurt

What I find interesting is how the 1980 gigs sound so much more raw than even those just three months later in 1981. They must have done some serious rehearsing over the Christmas break or something.
Audio quality is pretty ordinary on this one... compared to the two later Boston shows, anyway.

Otherwise, enjoying it!

Yeah, they do pretty well most of the time. The mother of one of the girls in my debating team at high school owned a local Baker's Delight and she'd give me free bread every time I went there.

Though the best chain bakery is by far Goldstein's. They're only in southeastern Queensland to my knowledge, but next time you're on the Gold Coast, find one and get a sausage roll and blueberry danish. You will not be disappointed. I will only eat their sausage rolls nowadays. Nowhere else compares.

You haven't heard some of the other 1980 bootlegs. It's pretty good in comparison.

Prior to 1981, the only bootlegs with really worthwhile quality are 5 October 1979, Cork, 26 February 1980, Dublin, and 14 October 1980, Hilversum.

The Rangiora Bakery in Christchurch (and Rangiora?) is one of the best I've been to, for a localised bakery.

I'll have to try Goldstein's. Especially because I lurve sausage rolls and blueberry danishes.

I used to have a chocolate criossant for breakfast every weekday, still warm.

Axver, Frogger was an old videogame where you had to be this frog that was trying to hop across a zillion busy lanes of traffic.
