I LOVE this cd! I found it for $1.99 in a cutout bin (Back when stores still occasionally had those.)

There must have been a lowbudget "Live" series for a while. I have/had a Smithereens live cd packaaged much like this one.

Thanks for the Don Dixon/ Marti Jones posts lately!

'budget show' yeah.
i was at this show and i remember the tickets being either ridiculously cheap...or a flat-out free give-away. something that WXRT-FM 93.1 useta do pretty regularly.
a great chicago station.

and somehow i missed a couple of chances at taping it off of xrt.

finally the release shows up and i got a copy.

the Woods were 2nd -billed and were ok, but the don and marti show was wonderful.

the weather was horrible that night (an ice storm i believe) and he looked to be quite sick and probably infected all of us sitting stageside, because he was sweating his ass off.
marti jones said he was not doing well from the stage even.

that's the reason he's wearing that towel on that cover photo, to mop himself up.

thanks for keeping this memory alive.

It appears your 2008 link listed in the comments above for this has, sadly, expired, Would you please consider re-upping it at your earliest convenience?
And if you need to re-strike it from the disc, would you consider 320? Or lossless?
Whatever you do, Thank You Very Much.
And Thanks for all the wondrous music you share.

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...
