What our staff has to say: “Roky is the greatest of all time. Live recording rock records are usually a pretty big pass for me, but this one is great and gets the pass. The cover of Heroin really does it for me. Roky Forever.” – Dan

1st Time On Vinyl. Limited Edition 1000 Units. Grey Marble Vinyl: Roky Erickson & The Explosives had been honing their craft in hot, sweaty clubs all over Texas for a couple of years before this California tour which, along with the Whisky, included the Warfield Theater in San Francisco, Galactica 2000 in Sacramento, the Stone in San Francisco, the Keystone Berkeley in, well, Berkeley, the Bacanal in San Diego and the Europa in Tucson, AZ on the way back to Texas. But, the Whisky was a special, magic night of music. Roky was on top of his game and the Explosives was a well oiled machine capable of musically “turning on a dime” with nary a single apple falling from the cart. The proof in that statement was when, as we were walking on stage to start the show, Roky turned to us and asked “Do you guys know the song Heroin by Lou Reed?” We replied “no” as we plugged in and Roky launched into, you guessed it, “Heroin” by Lou Reed. The results are on this record! Songs include “Heroin,” “Hide Behind The Sun,” “You’re Gonna Miss Me,” “I Walked With A Zombie” and more.
