Does anybody know how to contact rirocks.net for this tape? they released Providence 1978 last year and their website claims that they recorded both Providence 1977 concerts (Races Tour and News of the World Tour). Unfortunately, their Youtube channel was closed last year so getting this tape off youtube is highly unlikely (and the raw flac files are preferable anyway).
Nobody's sure if the tapes actually exist. But the taper, who now lives on the west coast, has said he'll check his tapes next time he's back out east.
People are in contact with him, so now all we can do is wait.
