Live recordings of rock ‘n’ roll bands from the mid-’60s are often a mixed bag of out-of-tune guitars, screaming girls, and questionable mic placement. Witness the Rolling Stones’ Got Live If You Want It and The Kinks’ Live at Kelvin Hall, to name but two. Then there are the fake live records, where audience noise is dubbed on to studio recordings, usually with underwhelming results.
Here, originally posted 5/5/08, is the most popular episode of The Mal Thursday Show to date, "Live 'n Wild," featuring some excellent live garage records, drawn from 45s, radio and TV broadcasts, demo tapes, and even a Hawaiian “Battle of the Bands” LP.
Presented in Living Monophonic Sound.
