I'm a HUGE fan of Lonesome George & the Destroyers, but I didn't think much of this gig...the sound wasn't too bad, but I wasn't impressed with the performance itself and deleted it.

The 1988 Mansfield performance is by far much better, in both quality and quantity. Better *still* is a gig from 1979 in Washington DC, which you can find over at the Camarillo Brillo site. RUN right over there and DL it right freaking terms of performance energy, this recording puts every other Thorogood recording to shame, including Mansfield. Just my opinion.
