Milan 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Alcatraz, Milan, Italy; June 3, 2014. Very good to excellent audience recording.

In September 2013, it was reported that Television had 16 songs recorded in December 2007 that await vocals and mixing, though a release date is still not scheduled. Drummer Billy Ficca told Rolling Stone then: “It might happen before we all die, I don’t know. It’s sort of laying there.”

In the meantime, here are Television, live in Milan 2014.

Thanks to the tapers; Renzo, who edited the tracks; and to mrblur for sharing the tracks at Dime.

mrblur added: “I didn’t record this myself but this is a direct copy from the guys who did and I think it’s one of the best-quality live Television recordings that I’ve heard - Billy Ficca fans should be especially happy with this one.”
