The Live Tapes, Vol. 3: Live at the Manly Vale Hotel, June 7, 1980
The third installment of Cold Chisel’s Live Tapes series shows the band in full voice, just as East was released. Nine songs from that album make the cut here, as well as spot-on covers of “Shakin’ All Over” and “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.” It’s a sweaty time capsule, immortalized right before Cold Chisel would break it big with East tracks “Choirgirl” and “Cheap Wine.” Vol. 3 is a reminder that you can take the band out of the pub, but you can’t take the pub out of the band.
