      The entire performance was done with little to no air-conditioning—according to Matt Fink. Quote is below:

      We did a show at First Avenue in August of 1983 that was a benefit for the Minnesota Dance Theatre, because that’s where we were getting our dance instruction. They brought in a live recording truck. The air-conditioning couldn’t keep up, so we were very sweaty. But we had a lot of fun. A lot of the basic tracks for the album were taken from that show. The other songs were pretty much him in the studio, like “When Doves Cry.”
