Milton, is it Ballads Only or this?

Don't think anyone has turned up a date for the ballads night, but the venue seems to have been the Shaftesbury Hotel. There's also another listing for the show at The Club that has Lawson Square Infirmary playing first.

Downloaded The Club a little while back, and the sound is pretty good.

This could be heaven; shallow spreads of ordered lawns.

The Lawson Square Infirmary songs from the Covers night at the club appear on one of the CDs in the box. It's funny I have no memory of doing this show at all.

No Gazza, its the one listed as "Perth Covers Night 1989" its definately not 1989, its either 1983 or 1984.

The "Ballads Only Night" is an interesting one, LAMF has it down as the 25th of August 1984 and Chris has it down as the 15 of August 1984.

Can anyone confirm which is the correct date?

Think I have a cassette of it somewhere. If I'm in the office tomorrow I'll have a look.

This may help. It is definitely Aug 1984.
When you say it is doing the rounds, do you mean there is an audio copy of the gig?

Hey Milton,
When you say the Ballads and Covers nights are available, what do you mean?
Where from? Do you have copies or know where I could get a copy of each??
As for the Covers night I have a copy of a gig poster for this.
It was on Thurs 23rd Feb 1984.
I have to admit this was not mine. An old friend(Zelda) gave me a copy and
arranged to get Tshirts printed up with this on the front. Looked really great!

That Covers night poster is wonderful...thank you.
It is a far, far better thing that I do now, than that other thing I did before that didn't go very well at all.
