X - Whiskey, Los Angeles 4-80

For the release of their first album, X performed a series of shows at the Whiskey in Hollywood with a few special guests. On this show, Ray Manzarek who was a member of the Doors and producer of the bands album, plays on a few songs, along with Top Jimmy. Billy Zoom also sings on Whole Lotta Lovin' and Bad Boy. It's an audience recording and the sound quality is good.

Minutemen - KPFK, Los Angeles 1982 + 1985

Both of these are radio broadcasts and have excellent sound quality. Two songs, tracks 2 and 16, from the 1982 show were officially released in 1984 on The Politics Of Time LP. The 1985 broadcast is the complete show but there is a tape flip after Cheerleaders  so a second or two of the beginning of Maybe Partying Will Help is missing. Can anyone fill in the song titles?
