Live At The Academy NYC 12.4.92 is a live album by Television after they reformed to record their third studio album, called Television.
Their 1977 classic, Marquee Moon is one of my favourite studio albums as they created a new wave / art rock sound unlike anyone who had come before and were style extremely, hip with their guitar solos.

I’m sorry. While I was very pleased that Television reformed, I’m disappointing with a set list that consists of eight of the ten songs from Television and three songs from Marquee Moon. I’d rank the album Television as third out of their three studio albums since I’ve always liked the more mellow sound of Adventure.
If you want one Television album, it’s hard to look past Marquee Moon but I’d encourage you to add more Tom Verlaine/Televsion into your life. If you want a Television live album, then go for Live At The Old Waldorf as its sound is much better than The Blow-Up. Otherwise think about investigating Tom Verlaine’s solo career with his live album Live At The Venue recorded in 1982.
