VG+ after some equalizing. The 2 sets had a different sound (2nd set much clearer). Sound level adjusted.

There is some uncertainty about the correct date. MILAVALENTI's tape gives 23.03.79 as date but a look at the John Cale Gigography on Schmitt-Hall-Studio site notes 22nd and 23rd Sept. 1979 as dates.
The setlists on that site are only given for the 22nd and they are the same as on this tape (only the times are different) but it can be that on the next day he played the same setlist.
Also Cale is accompanied by a guitar player only on both versions of A Child's Christmas In Wales. Cale is saying something after both songs but I could not make out if he announces the guitarist.
Anyway it's a great tape with really nice sound and it must have been one of Cale's first solo (almost) appearances with 15.03.79 in Washington DC being the first.
