Vinyl News: Vintage Live Album From The Plimsouls Due 2/23

Peter Case fans and vinyl enthusiasts will be stoked to hear that indie label Alive Records has a vintage live set titled Live! Beg Borrow & Steal from Case and The Plimsouls set for release on February 23rd. Alive previously released archival material from two of Case's pre-Plimsouls projects - The Nerves and The Breakaways, in addition to other artists including Buffalo Killers and The Black Diamond Heavies.  The label has a reputation for doing some pretty cool limited edition vinyl pressings, and Plimsouls fans will be happy to know that the upcoming live album will indeed be available on vinyl, in addition to the normal CD and digital releases.

Live! Beg, Borrow & Steal showcases The Plimsouls at the height of their power, on the verge of starting a riot on L.A.'s old Sunset Strip. Recorded at the Whisky A Go Go on October 31, 1981, this previously unreleased 18 song live album includes many of The Plimsouls' classics as well as plenty of surprises. It has been stunningly remastered, features previously unpublished and gorgeous photos by renowned photographer Bob Matheu, and also includes three pummelling tracks ("New Orleans," "Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!" and "Run Run Run") with special guests The Fleshtones.

The album will be in-stores (in both vinyl and CD) and digitally online on February 23rd. The first 1,000 copies of the record will also include a poster. Considering that all of The Plimsouls official studio releases are currently out of print, this explosive live document of the band igniting The Whisky nearly three decades ago stands as not only a highly anticipated release from the band, but also as a testament to the power of pure, unadulterated rock & roll.
