With his 1968 Billboard top 100 hit "Paralyzed", live appearance on NBC's Laugh-In in 1969 ( A performance which Rolling Stone magazine recently declares "One of the Greatest Moments in Rock and Roll TV), the Legendary Stardust Cowboy has a reputation as one of the wildest, most unique, and down-right weirdest rock and rollers ever!! The "Ledge" has also been the object of fanatical devotion by rockers such as David Bowie (who used the Ledg'es "Stardust" moniker for his own Ziggy Stardust character). And in a recent interview by Tim Steil of the Chicago Tribune, Bowie said "He (LSC) became part of the many inspirations for Ziggy, and I'm proud to say i still play his records to this day". and went on to say, "The Ledge is a true great of American music." Bughouse Records is proud to bring to you "The Legendary Stardust Cowboy: Live In Chicago!" This rare recording also features the Stardust Cowboy's smokin' backup band which includes guitarist Frank Novicki, drummer Mike Burns, and former Dead Kennedys bassist, Klaus Fluoride. So Look out! cause the Ledge is ready to hit the stage, bugle in hand, ready to entertain the pants off you...
You haven't heard it all!!

"I was one of the few at the Lounge Axe to see the Ledge's first Midwest show in a long time. He blew my mind. I have yet to hear this CD but I'm sure it is great. The only disadvantage you, as the listener, may have is that you will now be able to witness the "cowboy twist" or the Ledge's striptease at the end of the show. To say the least, he is one hell of an entertainer. His backing band rocked as well. If you'd like pictures of this show or more info, I'd be glad to help."

"I first got onto the Legendary Stardust Cowboy back in the early '70's when I came acrossed the 45 recording of Paralyzed/Who's Knocking At My Door which was on Mercury records. It was so great that I went back and bought six more copies for my friends. Though his music is different, the power and intensity is unequalled in his style of music. The Ledge is truely a Legened in our time!"

"I love raw and primative music. Hasil Adkins, the Shaggs, and the Monks all have treasured spots in my CD wallet. However, this has its moments but is just a bit too primative at times. It's funny every now and than and jaw dropping, but it's just a bit too incoherent. Seeing him live is probably a funner experiance than listening to him. Certainly weird and wild, but not really listenable. If you like the Ledge, you'll like this disc. If you find him to be incoherant and annoying, this will certainly not change your opinion. Not bad by all means, but theres so much better primative music out there you can listen to."
