This 1978 live recording captures Television at their peak, floppy-fringed and glorious. The versions here of “Ain’t That Nothin’” and “Venus de Milo” are unprecedented in their purity, while “Foxhole” and “See No Evil” charge like angry outbursts from a hostile world. Listen to the ear-bending take of “Little Johnny Jewel,” resplendent with methodically expounded and extended guitar interplays between Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd, and you’ll hear Television sounding like their true selves: a hybrid of art-scene punk, John Coltrane, and The Grateful Dead. Their covers of The 13th Floor Elevators, The Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan beautifully articulate the band’s inherent detachment.
