Cactus: WLIR Studios 1971

This is an interesting Radio broadcast from a not very well-known but great band, formed with highly skilled and experienced musicians.
Cactus music is like a mix of blues and rock played with high intensity, it's probably right to call them one of the first Hard Rock bands.


Sound Quality: 8.5

Track List:
01 Evil
02 Drum Solo
03 Evil & band introductions
04 Bro. Bill
05 Oleo
06 No Need to Worry
07 Token Chokin'
08 Big Mama Boogie - Part I (incl. Mona)
09 Big Mama Boogie - Part II

Links removed, this was officially released on July, 2010 (according to Amazon).

Excellent post, I'm very happy to have a "live" recording by the original line-up, "'Ot and Sweaty" isn't bad but it isn't the same. THANKS A LOT!!!!!

Just to let you know, this has been officially relesed as Ultra Sonic Boogie: Live 1971
Great post though. The official release has a better sound, obviously, richer and full
