Dead Kennedys Part 2

So after yesterday's summarization of the Dead Kennedy's basic studio output, I have a bunch more
stuff of thiers today,
enough so that back in the good ol' days I'd have titled this "The Best Dead Kennedys post, EVER", back before titles such as
that recieved so much criticism from the superior blogs out there. Lots of live stuff, some EP's, let us see what all we
have......in case you're specifically looking for them, yesterday's post, in addition to the studio releases, included a 1978
demo tape and a German boot "Skateboard Party".
1984's "Never Been on MTV" boasts great sound quality, as well as a version of "Police Truck", the track which was oddly
dropped from the CD versions of "Fresh Fruit".....one of the better boots you'll hear from the Kennedys, closing with a
slamming duo of "Nazi Punks Fuck Off" and "We've Got a Bigger Problem Now"...recommended.
"Give Me Convenience Or Give Me Death" is a fine compilation of rare tracks and B-sides, including another stab at "Police
Truck", also gems like "Kinky Sex Makes the World Go Round" and "Night of the Living Rednecks"......the fine non-LP track
"Too Drunk To Fuck" is here, also a version of "I fought the Law", a winner and highly recommended.
Released in 1992, we have "Spend July 4 With DK" is a fairly run of the mill live set, a German release of a 1982 London show, fairly predictable set list....not bad, not spectacular.
"Mutiny On the Bay" is an official live release, culled from four different San Francisco shows from 1982-86, all quite good versions of an approximation of a "Greatest Hits" lineup, I do recommend this one as well, quite good.
"Live at the Deaf Club, 3/3/79" is a somewhat sloppy bootleg, one of those "more interesting than listenable" efforts, notable for the inclusion of a "disco version" of "Kill the Poor", as well as a version of "Back in the USSR".....fans of the band will find it essential, the casual listener might not so much.
Now, "Live and Alive" is a bootleg comprised of tracks from OTHER live bootlegs, such as the ones here ("Skateboard Party", "Never Been on MTV", etc).....being too lazy to check to see if there is ANY non-overlapping tracks, I'm going to go ahead and include it here. 
I have an Old Waldorf show from 1979 (unsure of the EXACT date) which seems fairly rare, it's a short and energetic set loaded with stuff from "Fresh Fruit", closing with the strange choice of "Dreadlocks of the Suburbs".

Finally, I have something which is labeled as "Jello's REvenge", confusingly, the first nine tracks are taken from the above Old Waldorf set, EXCEPT FOR "Police Truck"! Did I miss something about that song? I swear I don't remember any controversy or anything about it, my memory is slipping me, not that it exactly glorifies police work or anything, but I swear I recall no official "ban" on it or anything......the remainder of the "Jello's Revenge" is from a 1985 show (The Farm, San Francisco), so pay attention, I am going to include both here, I hope I have explained the difference adequately, but if there WAS some actual controversy over "Police Truck" I want to make sure and re-ignite it if possible.
That's about all I have, I had a flexi-disc around here that had some of their stuff on it, not sure if it has anything non-overlapping on it, can't find it anyway.......anyone with any stuff from the Dead Kennedys that I haven't got, please assist the completists, they had a lot of good material and seemingly (I never saw them) were quite a live band as well, and, as is always important to me, they stood up for the rights of the individual. At least that is something.
