One thing about doing a show on satellite radio is that you can pull shit like airing “Sister Ray” in its entirety.

Check it below in all its garage-gnarled glory, along with “Guess I’m Falling In Love.”

  8. Can anyone guide a fan to some sites for good (or I suppose I’ll settle for decent) sound quality VU boots? And maybe recommend some of your faves and/or the best ones? I’ve been into the band for a long time and love the Quine tapes plus the Max’s KC and Live albums but have never explored the non-officially released stuff. Thanks for your help!
