Pure energy! Wow!

"As Peter Case indicates in the liner notes to this CD, you just need to hear the Plimsouls live to really appreciate how good this band really was. This show, from a 1981 gig (Cleveland?), highlights the band at its raw best - live in concert! It wouldn't do this disc justice to mention highlights as the ENTIRE disc rocks from start to finish, including my personal favorite "A Million Miles Away". Concerned about how good the quality might be from a show that was taped 24 years, ago? Don't be? The sound quality is excellent and the rawness of the sound makes you feel like you're right there in the front row. If you're a Plimsouls fan or a fan of the L.A. punk scene of the early 80's, get this CD now. You will NOT be disappointed. Turn the dial up on this baby. This thing cranks!

And to top things off, Peter indicates there's another disc coming next year. Next year can't come fast enough."

"Somewhere on Tour, Maybe Cleveland, One of Many,Many Nights that all flow into One. The Plimsouls were on a Stage. Well, we got lucky at last !!! The Energy of One of those Nights, is Captured Right here on CD. YAAAH !!!

This was the 80's that Nobody told you about, the Smelly, Sweaty Nights of Live Rock Bands that played in these Dark Little dives for Lot's of Fame but little Fortune.

And the Songs: "A Million Miles Away", "Time Won't Let Me", "Hush, Hush", "In this Town" ...This Music is PURE and it's American. This Music was Played in 1966 and somebody will be out there in 2026 Playing it all over again, thank you Peter, Lou, Eddie and David-O for letting us Peek into your World...

This is a very Cool CD..."

"If you were a complex multi-celled being in the early '80s (i.e., more than just a sperm and egg), you probably recall "A Million Miles Away," the most ubiquitous radio and movie soundtrack (Valley Girl, The Last American Virgin) hit from The Plimsouls. But like The Knack, Cheap Trick and other guitar rock bands lost in the sea of synthy '80s new wave, The Plimsouls were best heard live. So here's your chance until the boys down in the lab get the flux capacitor into the Delorean to send you back to 1981."
