JAMES CHANCE live in Paris, 1980

it opens with a Michael Jackson cover (and also has a James Brown cover) and closes with his own biggest hit "Contort Yourself"...if by hit you mean track that music snobs all know but regular people have never fucking heard of and includes a bunch of other live versions of great tracks like "Almost Black" and "My Infatuation" during the Contortions period. not essential...but worth a listen.

  1. This is a great record. There's another record put on on the ROIR label - Soul Exorcism - that is a live recording of a show in Holland a few weeks after the Paris show. Much the same track list but better quality, imho. And easier to find - as ROIR re-released it in 2007. These are incendiary recordings - amazing stuff.
