Sex Pistols — Live '76 (4 LP + Photos + Press Kit)

Universal Music Enterprises presents 4LP sets of Sex Pistols - Live '76. The collection comprises four revolutionary live recordings — all officially sanctioned by the Sex Pistols and professionally mastered at Abbey Road Studios and released in full for the first time.

Live '76 is the first time all four of these concerts have been collected together in sequence.

It features related photographs and an original facsimile Sex Pistols Glitterbest press kit from the era.

Disc one features the truly legendary Lesser Free Trade Hall, Manchester concert, which took place on June 4, 1976, arguably one of the most important music concerts ever. Set up by Pete Shelley and Howard Devoto (who were inspired to form Buzzcocks after travelling to Welwyn Garden City to watch the Pistols), the show was witnessed by people including future Joy Division/New Order members, Morrissey, Mark E. Smith (The Fall) and Tony Wilson, the concert changed the course of music history, with the Pistols inspiring a generation of musical mavericks.

Closer to the band's London roots, the second disc comprises the Midnight Special concert, which was recorded on August 29, 1976 at Screen on the Green, Islington — More widely known for its cult cinema screenings. This famous gig saw the Pistols supported by The Clash and Buzzcocks. Legend has it that journalists and record company staff attempting to gain entry were reported to have been barred entry.

Disc three is the live show that took place at Chelmsford Maximum Security Prison on September 17, 1976. Of the four recordings that make up this collection, this was the only one "officially" recorded on 4-track ¼ inch tape, by the band's live soundman Dave Goodman. Reportedly the idea of the band's manager Malcolm McLaren, who claimed it was part of his strategy to have the band play more interesting, unusual non rock ‘n' roll places, no doubt in an attempt to create controversy. John Rotten Lydon rose to the occasion by being his provocative best, as can be heard on the between songs banter.

The collection is completed with a concert that originally made its way around as a fans bootleg, recorded on September 25, 1976: 76 Club, Burton on Trent. Officially released in full for the first time.
