Live Ledge #291: 1987 (Again)

A couple of months ago, I put together a collection of tracks for a show dedicated to 1987. That was such a momentous year for me personally that I ultimately had way too many songs for one show. Tonight empties the folder, but it's not truly leftovers. Knowing that I would do a followup sometime this year, I held back some of my favorite records of the year. The Ramones, X, Guadalcanal Diary, Big Black, and Scruffy the Cat are just a few of the artists who missed the cut in March.

Admittedly, I did also expand the folder a bit to include some more tracks by the  Replacements and Hoodoo Gurus. This show also includes a few 1987 songs that I didn't discover until years later, along with some Uncle Tupelo demos that saw wider release a few years later.
