Live n' Wild Pt. 1: The '60s

Mal Thursday presents "Live N' Wild Pt. 1: The '60s." Live recordings of rock n' roll bands from the mid-’60s are often a mixed bag of out-of-tune guitars, screaming girls, and questionable mic placement. This revised and expanded episode of The Mal Thursday Show seeks to correct this with a series of transcendent live recordings spanning the years 1963 to 1968. Presented in Ultrasonic Stereophonic and Living Monophonic Sound. Originally broadcast, in different form, in the Fall of 2014.
