  2. Man I had that whole Little Stephen on tape, but can’t find it now, and no tape flip on the Los Desaparacidos. Anyway, thanks BigO, this will be downloaded and played this next week.

  3. Thanks for this. The Hubcaps were a big part of my life back then.

    Minor point: the town is Red Bank, not Red Banks.

  4. Thanks so much for posting this. I was at the show. Little Steven and Paul Schafer decided to re-create Spector’s Wall of Sound live that night. It was pretty extraordinary; the orchestra sections were enclosed in plexiglass walls with microphones on booms overhead. Never seen so many horn players on stage at the same time for a rock show; Southside made a wisecrack about that being his worst “nightmare.” Whatta’ great memory of a great night.
