Mirror In The Bathroom (live in 1980)

I was lucky enough to see The English Beat on this tour, opening for Talking Heads at Zellerbach Hall on the UC Berkeley campus. My two enduring memories of the show are Saxa, the aged saxophone player for The Beat, playing while sitting in a chair at the edge of the stage for most of the show (something you see Clarence Clemons doing sometimes with Bruce these days), and Adrian Belew, playing guitar with the Heads, blowing out my eardrums (we were in the sixth row) with his sonic explosions.
