the official "UB40 LIVE" album on Virgin was recorded in Ireland in 1982. Some shops advertise it as "live in Ireland" but its official short name is "LIVE". It has a drawing made by Brian Travers of Frankenstein on the cover.

There is a Funny Story behind the Drawings as Back in them days they recived alot of Threats from Anti Black Groups such as The National Frond Etc and One letter was sent to the Band made from old news papers (so they couldnt match hand writing) And the Pictures on the UB40 live album were on this Letter..So what the Band did to Piss them off was to use these Drawings on the New Live Album Cover.
So what do the people Do Complain? if they do they catch you wrote the Letter..Clever eh! and funny LOL.Brian told us this on here a couple of years ago!
