On May 5, 1998, Mark E. Smith graced the Maxwell's stage! I'm not sure if this is the first time The Fall played at Maxwell's, but the sound quality of this tape is superb! The Fall had just released their 10th studio album "The Frenz Experiment," in February of 1988. The record reached number 19 on the U.K. charts - making it the highest charting Fall record to date.
Mark E. Smith sadly passed away earlier this year. He is greatly missed!
