MC5 - Part Of The Problem Or Part Of The Solution
Don't know how this popped up but a very rare colleciton of unreleased and KILLER MC5 tracks!
You've waded through the thousands of MC5 live recordings and outtakes, retread and re-released every Zenta New Year with different artwork, different names but the same old audio.
Are you looking for something new to quench your high-energy Detroit rock and roll thirst? Try this on for size. Rumored to be the original demo reel JOHN SINCLAIR mailed off to Elektra Records back in 1968, this collection of live material is 100% unheard since then! Hard to imagine why as these explosive renditions hold up to the best of the 5's catalog.
If ripping versions of "Borderline" and "Come Together" aren't enough, also included are THREE songs NEVER heard of before from the band. "Softly in Love" is an original that starts softly and slowly builds to a droning eruption while "What's a Matter Baby" sizzles along like John Lee Hooker's original and while "Slow Down" trumps the Beatles version tenfold. Once these are gone...they gone.
Either the (live) demo reel John Sinclair recorded and sent to Elektra in hopes of landing a record deal or Danny Fields field recordings!
Sub-Revenge Records sound quality - lotsa tape hiss some random edits, but unreleased tunes like "Softly In Love" and "What's A Matter Baby
