The Scientists – not for sale: live 1978/79 cd/2lp
€ 16,90 – € 36,90 incl. btw
Live opnames van The Scientists van voor de eerste lp. Op Grown Up Wrong.
‘The Scientists’ pre-Swampland days in Perth are brilliantly encapsulated on this collection of mostly unreleased live material from ’78 and ‘79. These were the days when former Victims and future Hoodoo Gurus drummer James Baker led the band alongside guitarist / singer Kim Salmon, and when their poster read “Rock’n’Roll in the tradition of The Groovies and The Heartbreakers”. Not For Sale: Live’ 78/79 is a collection of live and rehearsal tracks that captures the band making the same noises as on those 45’s, and presents live versions of the fan faves and vastly superior versions of most of the LP tracks as well as coughing up a bunch of hitherto unreleased originals and covers to boot. Packaged with rare and unseen images, an original 1979 Roadrunner magazine feature by Kim Williams (of the Summer Suns, and co-writer of “Swampland”) and additional notes by Grown Up Wrong!’s Dave Laing. Not For Sale: Live ‘78/’79 provides a thrilling glimpse into what an album by the “Legendary” Scientists might’ve sounded like if it had been recorded in 1979.’
Prijzig op vinyl en daarom alleen op bestelling maar zo te zien ruimschoots de moeite waard.
