Plimsouls Show Not A Million Miles Away

It's a crime. There is absolutely nothing from the Plimsouls' catalog in print. Granted, the L.A. garage-rock outfit didn't put all that much on wax, but the seminal 1983 record 'Everywhere At Once' isn't even available for Pete's (Case) sake! You can still get the songs "A Million Miles Away", "Oldest Story In The World" and "Zero Hour" between the two volumes of the 'Valley Girl' soundtrack (and you should have those anyway), but that's it.

Alive Records must have thought it was a crime, too, because they are coming to the rescue with a famed Halloween 1981 live release from the Whisky A Go Go. The 18-song 'Live! Beg, Borrow & Steal' will be available on vinyl, CD and digital download on Feb. 23. The set will also include three tunes the boys did with The Fleshtones, as well as beautiful photos from Bob Matheu. If you're one of the first 1,000 to purchase it on vinyl, you get a poster, too. I have heard a bootleg of this show and thought it was an absolute must. It will be even better remastered. Here is a sample from the folks at Alive and Pavement PR.
