To those people, let me simply say -- Jeebus H. Christ on a piece of burnt challah toast.
Seriously, as the invaluable Roy Edroso makes the point -- far more amusingly than I could -- any putative liberal who's professing to be upset about this nonsense is playing into rightwing assholes hands BIG TIME.
And they should cut it the fuck out.
In any case, I'm venting about all this because I recently learned that there is an official -- with vastly improved sound -- CD release of the legendary Springsteen Live at the Roxy in 1975 bootleg (which I had on vinyl back in the day)...
...and it's even better than I remembered, i.e. absolutely transcendent and life affirming. You know -- the way art is supposed to be.
And if you don't believe me, check out this version of "Thunder Road"...
...and this cover of a Searchers classic.
You can order the whole thing over HERE, or you can just nicely ask me to burn a copy for you.
End of rant -- except why didn't I get the memo about the album previously? Sheesh.
Oh -- and have a great weekend, everybody!!!
