Foghat - International Amphitheater, Chicago (1981)

One of the best live boogie-blues-rock bands, Foghat are presented here playing at the International Amphitheater in Chicago, Illinois.
This was supposedly from a July 7, 1981 show, the same month the album Girls to Chat & Boys to Bounce was released and strangely no tracks from it are present... maybe this isn't the exact date.
Edit: According to various sources the correct date for this is July 12, 1980.

I Think this is 7-18-1980, and track 11 is Chateau Lafitte 59 Boogie - probably bcast in 1981

Per this site's (http://www.foghat.com/nav.htm) tour information, supposedly gleaned from Lonesome Dave's archives, Foghat's lone 1980 appearance at the Amphitheater was July 12th.

I have to feel this is correct, as the 1975-1978 (when I closely followed the band) Chicago dates are also correct.

Yes, after listening i would say that this is the 1980 show. Comparing this version to another i have at 160kbps,this version has been sped up and is too fast, hence why it is well over a minute shorter than the other version i have. The 160 recording is also better than this. Catley.
