Ever since YouTube recommended a new STP song, I dusted off the ol' CD case and have been listening to their old stuff. This is a live version of the first track off of Purple, the second CD I ever bought.
I never really got to experience 8 tracks. I remember there being an 8 track player in the basement that was broke and a drawer with some 8 tracks in it. However, my parents had mostly vinyl and cassettes. But by the time I was 14/15 and using my summer job money to buy music, it was CD's. I remember the first two I bought - Pearl Jam Vs. and STP Purple, but after that I couldn't tell you what was next.
They started over an hour late, the place was rather small( a small nightclub) and it was GA, but once they took the stage, man, these guys tore the roof off of the place. Rocking out Reggae and the drummer was a complete beast pounding on those skins. This band rocks live and I'd love to see them live again. Great show.My next show is gonna be interesting....
