Alex Chilton - Acme Under, NYC 1998

Acme Underground
New York, NY
May 1, 1998

audience recording (sound quality VG+; transfer from DAT master; just the right amount of crowd noise so you get the ambiance)
Children by the millions scream for him. Shouldn't you?
ROB SEZ: Alex is ON here, enjoying himself, and sounding jazzed to be playing in his old stomping grounds. If you own just one LX solo boot, this is the one to have. ENJOY!
MEGA THANKS to NYLifer for taping and sharing, and to Craig62 for re-sharing.

  1. Sorry to bug but I think the zip is missing the mp3.

    1. Just checked, and the link and download work fine. 300+ MB file that contains all the MP3 files.

      Try again, my friend. Second time = charm for you, I hope...

    2. Second time was a charm! Thanks so much!

  2. Thanks. New Jeffrey Dean Foster album coming soon, produced by Mitch Easter with Don Dixon playing on a few tracks!

  3. Thank you, thank you !
