There are numerous early Costello recordings available in great quality. Of the three KSAN pre-fm recordings I have this is easily the best.
Elvis Costello & the Attractions
February 7, 1978
This show was first posted in May 2005 by musigny23 and snatched some 500+ times.
Reposted in January 2006 by craig62 and with almost 300 snatches before falling off the tracker in August 2006.
Here it again for anyone who wasn't around in 2005-2006. These are the original flac files except I've split off two long-ish encore breaks (1:24 and 2:36) into separate tracks.
