Grandmaster Flash and Kurtis Blow Live in Queens NY 1981: Flash uses the Life Story sample

Two legends teaming up in 1981: Grandmaster Flash and Kurtis Blow.
What makes this tape extra special is that it contains the famous The Hellers' Life Story sample that Flash used in the adventures of grandmaster flash on the wheels of steel. Flash is mixing it up with Good Times. Not sure if this tape (16.50 minutes) is dated before or after the release of that single.
