GBH: Dover Showplace 1983: CD

Nov 21, 2014

A live recording of twelve tunes culled from the band’s most fruitful period, namely the early 1980s, before they and punk in general decided metal was not the devil after all. Sound quality is of the variety one used to find in the best tape-trader fare, meaning it’s either from a really fuggin’ clear audience recording or a really raw board recording. Tacked on at the end are demos of “Drugs Party in 526” and “Vietnamese Blues,” which, like this whole endeavor, will likely be of interest to completists and über-fans who have to have everything a band puts out, and few others.
