Glam metal vets L.A. Guns offer up this previously unreleased live set from 1989. Boasting their classic lineup (Phil Lewis on vocals, Tracii Guns on lead guitar, Mick Cripps on rhythm guitar, Kelly Nickels on bass, and Steve Riley on drums), Boston 1989 captures L.A. Guns in their prime, hot on the heels of their most successful (and arguably best) album, Cocked & Loaded. With a spirited set list culled mostly from their first two albums, the Guns rip through early highlights like "Sex Action," "One More Reason," and "Never Enough" with plenty of swagger and attitude. In terms of sound quality and performance, this is a top-notch offering from the band's heyday.
