Recording information

There's an audio recording with some The Police songs and one of Cherry Vanilla 's sets. It was recorded by Bruno Blum on a stereo Sony Walkman TCS-300.

Grand Hotel is not on the cassette recording, but the opening riff can be heard right after Clowns Revenge.

The Police load their stuff into the truck at 12:00pm. Soundcheck at the venue is around 05:30pm. There's time to rest and have dinner afterwards.

Chelsea play first, then Cherry Vanilla and band, then The Police, then Cherry Vanilla again.

Early ads in various UK magazines show that this concert was originally scheduled to take place at another venue: "Charing Cross Global Village"

Cherry Vanilla was wearing her famous LICK ME-shirt.

An official live LP (with songs from various bands recorded at the Roxy in 1977) features Stewart Copeland and Zecca Esquibel on the cover (although there's no The Police music on the record) ! The photo was taken after today's gig at The Roxy Club. You can clearly see the TAMA bass drum Stewart used and two different people on stage - the left one is Stewart Copeland, the right one is Zecca Esquibel.
