In the fall of 1985, Sonic Youth were touring the States following the release of their BAD MOON RISING LP. This show at Chicago's Smart Bar was recorded on 4-track cassette and consists of live versions of most of the songs from that album, early performances of "Secret Girl" and "Expressway to Yr Skull" (later to be released on EVOL) and a rare, never-before-released live rendition of "Kat n Hat." Mixed and mastered by the band from the original tape source, this single-CD edition includes liner notes by Gerard Cosloy and Sonic Youth engineer Aaron Mullan, plus unpublished photos by Pat Blashill and Steven Koress.
