MC5 - Saginaw Civic Centre 1st Jan 1970

History according to the book of Maim.

1st album "Kick Out The Jams" was one of the
greatest live albums ever.

3rd album "High Times" was a sonic masterpiece,
a stab of proto-punk and psychedelia.

The 2nd album "Back in The USA" was a limp,
tired, thin sounding piece of shit, that with the
exception of a couple of songs, sucked hugely.

For those of you who agree with me, here is a live
recording of the Motor City Boys performing most
of "Back in The USA" as it should of been played
the first time - with power and passion and an urgency,
NOW these songs sound good.

If any one actually reads these reviews, this CD is
from the boxed set "Purity Accuracy" and is CD 3.

If you prefer "Back in The USA" over the other albums - get the fuck off my blog!
