About the album[]

The album is a recording of Duran Duran's performance at the Hammersmith Odeon, a 5,039 capacity venue located at 45 Queen Caroline Street in London. This was the ninth of eleven shows performed in the UK on the tour.

On 29 June 1981, Duran Duran started their Faster Than Light Tour from Brighton, UK. 10 days later this album was recorded.

The album is the oldest complete Duran Duran show available.

The recording includes "Tel Aviv", an instrument used as the intro to the show. "Girls on Film" was performed as a Night Version for the encore. There is also an early version of "My Own Way", with different and incomplete lyrics.

"Like An Angel" is a rare live version. Near the end of the show, Duran Duran performed a cover version The Isley Brothers' song "Tell Me It's Just A Rumor Baby".
