I’d never even considered buying a bootleg anything before I found this tape, as a teenager, by THE CRAMPS in 1984 called “NY ‘79”. I felt pretty special at the time, like I had something super rare. Then when my Cramps-loving older cousin, whose music taste I idolized at the time, told me I was “rad” for having this and asked me to tape it for him – well, I was pretty on fire in my own head 29 years ago.
I digitized the whole thing for you – the live show that starts it off, and the studio demos that close it out. I made it all one continuous track (sorry), but you’ll want to listen to it in its entirety anyway. So no worries, right?
Some highlights include a killer studio version of “Weekend On Mars”, which is mostly known as a live song from the “Smell of Female”-era Cramps of the early 80s, and the amazing lead live song, “The Way I Walk”, a version that bests the studio version. Hope you enjoy it.
