Social Distortion: Lost Tracks


Twenty-some extremely rare demos, live, acoustic, B-sides, comp tracks by Social D. and still without great overlap with our last few boots. While there are, obviously, some justifiable throwaways here, there are some excellent items here including a beeped by by our ever-more-timid major labels version of the Clash's "Death of Glory".



I removed a few obvious gaffes from this compilation (including the frequently mis-attributed versions of "Pretty in Pink" and "Tainted Love" that are actually by Automatic 7 and Shades Apart, respectively) but since there was some solo Ness material already, I added this live duet on "Bad Luck" with big-time Social D fan, Bruce Springsteen.

    Thanks and I didn't know Bruce Springsteen was a fan of Social D or any other punk band. Or is it a joke ?

    Man, you may have just given me an idea for a post but here's one of many Bruce endorsements of the band:
    “I’m still a big Social Distortion fan … one of the not-heralded-enough great American rock bands”. (from Rolling Stone).

  4. I can't grab this. Mediafire is taking over two hours to download it. I thought it was my pc, but then stuff from rapidshare and megaupload downloaded in the usual minutes.
    Anyone else having this problem?

    Hope the problem worked itself out, these have had tonnes of d/l's so it might be a 'local issue" Let me know.
