2005 release. Classic tenth anniversary concert featuring performances of "Rocket USA," "Rock n' Roll (Is Killing My Life)," "Ghost Rider," "Sweet White Lady," "Harlem," "96 Tears" and the song that would go on to define Bruce Springsteen's career, "Dream Baby Dream." "Ghost Riders, recorded live at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis in 1981, is also very much about survival. With this performance, Rev and Vega celebrated ten years together -- ten years of battling barroom goons, of starving between gigs and getting barely a fraction of their music down on record when Suicide-come-latelys like OMD and the Human League were up to their pencilnecks in platinum. All that energy, frustration and indestructible pride comes blasting through in this recording. No matter how many versions of 'Rocket U.S.A' and 'Ghost Rider' you have already (that is if you have any at all), you owe it to yourself and to Rev and Vega to hear these." -- David Fricke, 1986
