Yes!...It's the BIG DOUBLE LIVE! CD "Poolside With Gilly" - Stan's pal and trusty road manager.
Recorded LIVE at the Strand in Hermosa Beach Calif, November 2nd 1991. A true gem of a recording, its left with all the talk between songs and no breaks to preserve the whole show as it was. Fantastic.
You'll truly feel as if you were there on that chilly November evening at the bizarre and strange ( and some say mafia owned ) Strand Supper Club in suburban Manhatten Beach, Calif.
THE STRAND CLUB in 1991:
The club's walls were decorated with old 60's Vargas nude
paintings and it looked more like "The Sopranos" than a music hall. All of 500 people packed to the rafters! But hey! The manager, Mr Sali "the toe" Bologna, gave Stan and the band a poolside bungalow to chill in for the weekend hence the "Poolside with Gilly" subtitle. Did Stan go swimming?..did he sleep with the fishes?...did he meet the
Don?...Did he take a bribe?
Only Mr. Gilly knows for sure... and he's not talking.
The cover picture was taken that night by the pool, and if you ask us, sleazy Hollywood agent, Jackie "teak" Lazar looks a little frightened ( or maybe just high...)
It was a fantastic show, filled with all the hits they had, and Stan and the band simply killed 'em!
