Pere Ubu - New York 1977 + Cleveland 1978

The New York show is an audience recording. The 1st set is complete but the second set is missing most of the last song plus the songs Over My Head, 30 Seconds Over Tokyo and Life Stinks. Sound quality is good. The Cleveland show is a soundboard recording. The first two songs were released in 1981 on the 390 Degrees Of Simulated Stereo: Ubu Live Volume One LP. Sound quality is very good. Can anyone fill in the song titles?

These shows are both audience recordings. The Washington DC show is two sets. Sound quality is good.
