By 1979, The Flamin' Groovies were still riding high from their 1976 album Shake Some Action, a devastating record that shone a wider light on the band and guaranteed their status as underground icons. Their influence would be felt in the ensuing years with numerous alternative bands both at home and across the world absorbing the band's look, sound, and attitude. Eternal champions of the raw punk of the 1960s that re-emerged on Greg Shaw's Pebbles series and Lenny Kaye's groundbreaking Nuggets, The Flamin' Groovies paid homage to the sound and the songs with an explosive live set as is evident from their appearance at Keystone in Palo Alto, CA, in August 1979. The complete radio broadcast of this performance is presented here in professionally remastered sound with background liners and rare archival photos.
