I am putting this bootleg cd on here mainly for the amazing jam of Sister Ray. This version goes on for about half an hour and pretty much destroys everything in it's path with intensity and unprecedented guitar playing. The vocals are a bit unclear but you will forget about all that when Lou goes to work. It's just a remarkable live recording. The other songs are all awe inspiring, too. Must Listen.
