San Francisco 1985 [no label, 1CD]

Live at The Stone, San Francisco, CA; January 25, 1985. Very good soundboard.

There was a time when “The Smiths were a more popular indie band than The Long Ryders in Europe and when only The Replacements were a more popular indie band in the USA.” So goes the blurb for The Long Ryders’ first full-length album, Native Sons (1984). And that was before the release of State Of Our Union in 1985, the group’s most well known and highest charting album.
