A triumphant and dignified return for the great Dave Sez

Always great news when I see that Dave Sez has taken a bit if his valuable time to remember us all by
 guy on matters of 70's punk/new wave, especially of the UK variety, but that is by no means his limits, as he has helped me out with stuff as wide and diverse as Wilko Johnson or Focus.
sharing some of the more epically rare great music in his tremendous stash,,,,,,he's basically my "go to

Anyway, ALWAYS a great thrill to see that Dave Sez has another submission to share with the world, and I am only happy enough to share with anyone else who wishes......most often it is of the VERY rare variety, and is always of top-notch quality. Take it away, Dave Sez, and thank you for your presentation of a live 1979 show from Ultravox, as well as three discs of John Foxx rarities. Thought Ultravox were one of the better of the early new wave bands, PURE period piece synth-driven "space-pop", influenced to a huge degree by David Bowie and Roxy Music (not that they measure up to either).

First , here are Dave Sez' notes on the first recording here, Ultravox 2/23/79 at Philadelphia's Hot Club:
Ultravox - Philadelphia Hot Club 23/02/1979

From the Dave Sez archive: the crown jewels of Foxx-era Ultravox, a FLAC recording of an FM broadcast by WIOQ. Full cover art, band history and live links to further Ultravox recordings included. Bonus: the 1975 single as Tiger Lily.

And, as if that fine set and all the bonuses weren't enough, Dave Sez knocks it out of the park with a bunch of John Foxx rarities of the era immediately post-Ultravox......as you can see, this collection features a rarities collection, a set of demos, etc, and a bunch of BBC material.......here are the details:

OK, I'm going to leave this here to make this a "pure" Dave Sez contribution, however, I KNOW I have one or two more Ultravox boots back there that I'll go try and find and post here in "Part 2" of this post, hopefully in an hour or less.......see comments for links to these, and look for another Ultravox surprise or two yet tonight.
