as much as i love vinyl, some of my fave spins the past couple of months have been from downloads of archival stuff -- the move @ flllmore '70, velvets @ hilltop festival '69, the dead @ avalon '68, and this '76 bedroom-recorded gem from the late peter laughner (rocket from the tombs, pere ubu). best moments here are two versions (one over ten minutes long) of a dylanesque laughner 'riginal, "the junk man." when he checked out at 24, this dissolute young man hadn't even begun to scratch the surface of his talent. a shame.
