It’s time for another installment of our Vinyl Junkyard serial, where I pick some cheap vinyl record that I found lying somewhere in a bargain bin, which also sounds awesome at the same time. In this show, I picked a compilation record Live at CBGB’s – The Home Of Underground Rock, published in 1976 on the CBGB label and distributed by Atlantic. It contains somewhat of the second tier of the CBGB associated bands, Mink DeVille being the best known in the bunch. And even their songs are three tracks which never made it to their own records. There’s a large variety of musical styles covered, which proves that CBGB was not just a punk club, it was just pure unadulterated rock’n’roll. I like listening to this record and I hope you will too.

Today’s show is dedicated to Sid Selvidge. He was a part of the Mud Boy and The Neutrons, a group of highly influential Memphis musicians. Lee Baker on guitar and Jim Dickinson on piano both passed away relatively recently, and Sid, who was the lead singer, just died in May this year. He was an incredible talent and a great singer who did not put out a lot of records, but nevertheless, influenced many. We also have Bassholes with their new record called Boogieman Stew and King Khan also with his new record called Idle No More. We also introduce a new super-group, consisting of Eddie Munoz from Plimsouls, Clem Burke from Blondie and Keith Streng from Fleshtones. It’s called The Split Squad. Our Australian favorites, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizzard are back with a new Internet single, a cover of T. Rex song Lean Woman Blues.
