Blondie The Old Waldorf San Francisco 1977

The Old Waldorf, SF CA, 21st September 1977 Early and Late Show is a live recording by new wave band Blondie. It was broadcast on KSAN-FM.

It was recorded in San Francisco when punk and new wave were the new big thing in 1977. At this stage they had released their debut studio album (Blondie in 1976) but their second, Plastic Letters didn’t appear until February 1978.

It’s refreshing to hear a Blondie live album without many of the big hits that came from Plastic Letters and Parallel Lines. You get a better feel of how they will have fitted in at CGBGs sandwiched between Talking Heads, Television and The Ramones.
