Recording information

This section needs more information. Please note if an official or unofficial recording, or recording(s), is known to exist of this performance.


Stewart met his bank manager in the morning. In the afternoon he leaves his house at 4:30pm to collect Zen's van and then Sting. They drive to St. John's Wood, La Starza Palace and then to the venue. Some friends turn up and they eat burgers. There are 54 people in the audience, but The Police's guest list was large... After the concert they bring their gear to Andy Summers' place. Stewart then drives Sting home and brings the truck back to Zen.

Photos from today's concert can be seen in the The Police: A Visual Documentary by Miles (on the 4th page and on the November 1977 page) and in L'Historia Bandido (on page 53). Although the song Rosy Lee had been renamed Peanuts (as Sting wrote new lyrics for it) it's still on the setlist with its old name.
