This concert from May 1983 finds Dance Exponents — one of five bands filmed for a Radio with Pictures live series — with their star on the rise but yet to release their debut album. An irrepressible Jordan Luck and band mates Dave Gent, Brian Jones and Mike Harralambi perform six songs in front of an enthusiastic full house at Auckland's premier venue Mainstreet Cabaret. Highlights include a sparse, urgent 'Victoria' and a barnstorming 'Airway Spies'; while opener 'Perfect Romance' was only ever released in this version from a companion live album.
Perhaps, as only a live recording could, this testifies to their greatest quality — an overwhelming sense of fun.– Russell Brown, Rip It Up, July 1983, p 20
