"X is in the top 5 greatest live bands I have ever seen. I have seen a lot of bands play. A lot."- Henry Rollins
The musical history of Los Angeles can be divided into two distinct eras: â€œBefore Xâ€ and â€œAfter X.â€ X was one of the first U.S. punk bands, but by adding rockabilly and country elements, they were a major influence on the Americana/alt-country movement, not to mention subsequent waves of punk bands.
X: Live In Los Angeles commemorates the 25th anniversary of the bandâ€™s landmark debut album, Los Angeles. On this CD, the original lineupâ€”John Doe, Exene Cervenka, Billy Zoom, and D.J. Bonebrakeâ€”comes together once again to celebrate this milestone with a killer 21-song set of fan favorites.
â€¢ The only live album to feature the classic lineup, taped in front of a wildly enthusiastic hometown audience.
â€¢ Contains all of their classic songs, including â€œLos Angeles,â€ â€œWhite Girlâ€ and â€œThe Hungry Wolfâ€ and their version of The Doorsâ€™ â€œSoul Kitchen.â€
â€¢ Liner notes by Flea of The Red Hot Chili Peppers.
