This here Gem is from a live on the air broadcast of George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers from the Cellar Door in DC.
Broadcast live on WHFS 102.3 FM Bethesda, MD on FEB 19 1979.
Whatever you think about George these days, back in the day he was BAD TO THE BONE. This concert is the best, IMHO, recording of George I've ever heard. Download this even if you're just a casual fan. It won't dissapoint! George and the Delaware Destroyers were friends with Jimmy Thackery and the Nighthawks. The Destroyers and the Nighthawks happened to be playing shows in Georgetown (DC) at venues across the street from each other. The Destroyers were playing at The Cellar Door, the Nighthawks at Desperados. At midnight, by prior arrangement, while both bands played the same song ("Madison Blues") in the same key (E), George and Jimmy left their clubs, met in the middle of M street, exchanged guitar cables and went on to play with the opposing band. You can clearly hear Jimmy Thackery plug in his guitar, and Jam with the Destroyers.
