the 'music for a new society' tour was an excellent phase in cale's career. also highly recommended is the german rockpalast record from the same tour (think it was 'zeche bochum') ...

excellent indeed...there are a few concert recordings from the 1983 solo run, with the same HQ performance but not quite as clean sound...the exception zeche bochum was an official dvd release...
