6 tracks taken from a concert at "My Father's Place", Long Island - recorded by WLIR-FM radio, New York
A live King Biscuit Flower Hour radio show recorded in July 1980 purchased by Phonogram Records in Germany to be released as an album for the exclusive purpose of promoting an upcoming 2-hour live television concert, "Rock Palast," on January 20, 1981, and a concert with The Boomtown Rats two days later.
Called "Mas Hysteria," the record cover is designed to look like a bootleg, and though it was originally meant strictly for promotional use, due to popular demand this 6-song "limited edition" is released and reprinted in Germany year after year. The 12:51 version of "Sittin' In The Dark" becomes especially popular in clubs and on radio (and still gets much airplay there today).
"Mas Hysteria" eventually sells over 250,000 copies, ironically making it Carolyne's biggest-selling record anywhere. Because it is sold at a "nice price," she is ineligible for the accolades that a Gold Record would normally bring. She will also never see a penny from this record, her biggest success.
