Info: "On 28th March 1977 the Iggy Pop tour rolled into Chicago. A local radio station broadcast a run through of the regular live show in the empty Aragon Theater. It sounds like a radio session, but it's basically the live set - Bowie on keyboards and backing vocals, Hunt Sales on drums and backing vocals, Tony Sales on bass, and Ricky Gardiner on guitar. And it's a fabulous set. 

Despite the slightly sterile atmosphere Iggy pulls out all the stops. One of the best ever versions of Dirt and a killer I Wanna Be Your Dog which in a slightly remixed form (eliminating mainly Bowie's rather overbearing and irritating keyboard sound!) it turns up as the final track on the official TV Eye 1977 Live album". This was written by Richard Adams in Bowie Audio, author of "The Complete Iggy Pop".

Then, this audio was recorded in the Aragon Theatre?, what`s the relation with Mantra Studios? they exist?...nice topic to be discussed. -Details taken from original .nfo file.
