J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.) Live At CBGB's: The First Acoustic Show on Limited Edition 180g LP
This December 1993 live recording from Dinosaur Jr. mastermind J. Mascis captured at the famous New York club CBGB's finds the guitar wizard performing acoustically for the very first time. Mascis even gives the disclaimer to open the show that this was his "first ever acoustic performance, and I'm a little freaked out." Without the bludgeoning volume Dinosaur Jr. built its name on, the material shines in an entirely new light and emphasizes that Mascis was indeed more than just a throwback shredder but a talented singer-songwriter too. Highlights include "What Else Is New," "Not the Same," and "Keeblin."
