Arie Crowne Theatre
Chicago
Illinois USA
April 18 1978

Description: Second night at the Arie Crowne, this show is a mixed bag.  Unlike the first night, it's not complete.  The quality varies, as Warszawa through Moon Of Alabama sounds like a different recording than Station to Station through Rebel Rebel.  Station through Rebel sounds more like the first night's recording just in poorer quality than the 17th.  Several songs have bits missing, like Sense of Doubt, of which only :12 appears, Rebel Rebel (1:13 only), Speed Of Life (2:16).  The band introductions and Five Years are also missing completely, and the second set starts about half-way through Soul Love.  So not a perfect recording by any means, but it's the only one known to exist.  I personally find the first half listenable, the performance is good, and this has a complete Rock N'Roll Suicide, which is always good for the 1978 shows.
