This is a vinyl rip of The Good Rats- Live at Last (Ratcity, RCR 998, 1980), a double LP recorded at My Father's Place in Roslyn, NY. This album is one of the best live albums out there. I love this band! Flying just under the radar, The Good Rats really play a wide varity of music. But it's all uniquely their own. Mix up Frank Zappa, Crack The Sky, AC-DC, Van Halen and anyone else that is creative, fun, and kick ass. If you like this rip, go get the CD. It's available on

1. Taking It To Detroit
2. Does It Make You Feel Good
3. You're Still Doing It
4. School Days
5. Cherry River
6. Injun Joe
7. Let Me
8. Tasty
9. Fred Upstairs And Ginger Snappers
10. Klash-Ka-Bob
11. Fireball Express
12. Victory In Space
13. Reason To Kill
14. Local Zero

I saw these guys a couple of times back in err, 1980 or 1981. They were a big band in the tri-state area and put on a very energetic live show.

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
