Crazy 8s, Big Live Nut Pack (20th Anniversary Edition) 2 CD Set
Picked in 1985 as one of the Top 10 Bands to watch by Rolling Stone Magazine, Crazy 8s were the college radio/indie rock darlings of the 1980's and early 90's. The original Big Live Nut Pack release was a 5" and a 3" cd for a crazy 8 inches of live music released on 8-8-88 after 8 shows (7 from the stage of a 40' semi that traveled the Portland, Oregon market, performing in front of retail outlets and making a mess of the local commute for many folks. Out of print for nearly 15 years, this classic live recording reappears with (a crazy) 8 bonus tracks on the 20th Anniversary of the original release. This release was from an incredible night in Eugene in front of the largest crowd ever to see a performance at the University of Oregon's Erb Memorial Ballroom. In 2007, Crazy 8s were inducted into the Oregon Music Hall of Fame. Hear why this band was so successful performing with artists including The English Beat, The Clash, UB40, Oingo Boingo, The Violent Femmes, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Steel Pulse, Toots and the Maytals and Romeo Void to name a few.
