Social Distortion - Demos, Promos & Covers




I believe this gem first came to me thorugh hangoverheartattack and I always hightly recommend the music there - Support Your Favorite Bloggers!! Click Ads!! Leave Comments!! Anyway - I don't have nearly enough Social Distortion rarities discs but am always looking to augment my meager collection - so anyone have any? Words cannot say how cool Mike Ness is for doing his own thing for so long in the face of massive opposition, he was rockabilly when it was pretty much only himself and Brian Setzer carrying the flag into battle. Now, of course, everyone has always listened to Eddie Cochrane, Carl Perkins and other legends of the genre - but no one would have dared admit it years ago. Hell, I may not have even given Johnny Cash a chance myself (other than lip service payment) unless I had first heard Social Distortion doing 'Ring Of Fire' way back when. I am sure many Johnny fans were born then as well as fans of Social D. I can also vouch for the quality of the live show - fucking great. Pardon my French. So, enjoy these and hopefully more to come.

You've certainly been busy...

Thanks for the Ness/SD outs. There are definately a few that I don't have. Here's what I DO have:

"Out Of The Gutter:B-Sides, Unreleased & Covers" 18 tracks (DUI-Digital Underground, Inc.label)

"Bad Moon Rising" - mostly live and mostly covers from CCR to the Stooges. 21 tracks. DUI-Digital Underground , Inc. OK sound quality.

"Rare B-Sides & Live Tracks" sound is all around pretty good ranging from ok to excellent. 20 tracks. (no label). This one is my favorite.

adios

My good friend senor w, thanks again for your kind offer of help. I don't have 'Out Of The Gutter' or the 'Rare B-Sides & Live Tracks' so either/or one of these would be awesome. Thanks for coming by and always thanks for the kind comments.

First of all - thanks for the excellent choice here with Social D. I do have a correction to offer though - "I fought the Law" is not an original Clash song but rather one from The Bobby Fuller Four and the Clash covered it.

Thanks again

I knew that and chose not to change it out of my ownkl laziness, I apologize if anyone was fooled.

Man, I just should not type in the morning or late night - every time I do I only notice the many typing errors later on. Aging is no fun kids - go outside and play.

Senor W, I know this is a little late and it's not that I'm unappreciative but would it be possible to get 'Out Of The Gutter' at a higher rate? 96kbps is only decent for spoken word, not music. 128kbps is the minimum for quality and lowest size. Thanks again.
