Kyoto 1981 (2-LP Bootleg)

Overall this is quite good quality, but not up to the standard of Polaroid. The source is a stereo FM broadcast. During European Son, David starts to sing the wrong lyrics but corrects himself halfway through a verse. This double LP comes in a green or red sleeve and has red or black labels featuring Mick Karn sculptures. This bootleg was on sale in the early to mid 1980s. An edited version came out on CD as "Oriental Performance".
