Title: Long Live The Evolution  -  Company: DoubleJay Rock 1540 (Aust)

Cat No: (aa9042)  -  Format: 12" lp  -  Released: 1978  -  Status: Deleted


This live version of Burned My Eye was recorded at a 2JJ studio concert on 23/11/76 and later released on this giveaway compilation album that included other live tracks from a variety of mainly bad Australian acts. Excluding bootlegs, it is the only live material from that era of the band ever released.

This dual guitar version of the band, which existed for about 18 months, was minus keyboard player Pip Hoyle who had left over conflicts arising from medical school committments. He was replaced by Chris Masuak, a fan who had become a friend. Pip returned later, forming the six piece final version of the line-up.
