Live Stiffs Live is a live album released in 1978,[3] containing performances by various Stiff Records artists from the first "Live Stiffs Tour", which ran from 3 October to 5 November 1977.[4] It features tracks by Elvis Costello and the Attractions, Ian Dury & the Blockheads, Nick Lowe, Wreckless Eric and Larry Wallis. The album opens with tour MC (and later Clash road manager) Kosmo Vinyl calling audience members away from the bar and introducing the first act as "Nick Lowe's Led Zeppelin". The final cut of the album is a performance of Ian Dury's hit, "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll" performed by all of the tour's artists and crew. The album has various names from Stiffs Live Stiffs, Stiffs Live and Live Stiffs. The correct name of the original Stiff Records release on 17 February 1978 was Live Stiffs Live.[3] The album was later re-issued on Music for Pleasure (MFP 50445) as simply Live Stiffs.[3] The album was subsequently released by Demon Records on CD in 1994 (Demon 621) and re-released in 1997 (Edsel 621 & Diablo Records 851) [5]
