Another Friday, another visit to that bustling metropolis we like to call Bootleg City Á¢€” and this week, as promised, here’s eighteen tracks of live Hüsker Dü. Supernova, recorded on the band’s final tour in 1987, is Á¢€” I believe Á¢€” one of the more widely reproduced bootlegs in existence (my copy was released by Kiss the Stone; our dear pal Benja swears he had a Blind Pig version), but hey:that must mean there’s something to it, eh?

Well. Perhaps, perhaps not. But for the price of admission, you can’t beat the show. Do your Dü, dear friends, and meet me back here next Friday, when we all get happy, Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 style!
