Well, what do you know? It’s Mike Reno’s favorite part of the week again, and you know what that means — we’re headed back to Bootleg City, courtesy of our good friends at 125 Records!

This week’s show will be a treat for many of you, and that’s why I’m putting it up — certainly not because David Lee Roth’s clownish yelping has stopped giving me hives. (You’re welcome, Diamond Dave fans.) Actually, all griping aside, this is great stuff; the first seven tracks were recorded at the Whisky a Go Go, 12/31/77, and the last five come from a 6/13/76 performance at the Pasadena Hilton. All twelve feature a soon-to-be-famous rock band in its reckless, fleeting youth. Rock on, Bootleg Citizens!
