The Sultans live at Bar Pink 7/15/12

Oh, hey everybody.

You know about the Sultans, right? John Reis in neither his RFTC nor Hot Snakes nor Night Marchers nor Jehu nor Back Off Cupids mode, but rather his stripped-down trio with Tony Di Prima on drums. Broke up in 2007 but prone to the odd one-off reunion show...

This is one, recorded on July 15, 2012 at Bar Pink, which Reis co-owns. It is, as the kids say, SHIT HOT. Nice HD video, stellar sound, and a great performance. Somebody said there should be a vinyl bootleg of this. I couldn't quite do that, but I did download the video, burn it to a DVD, rip the audio (in mp3 cos I couldn't figure out how to do it in a higher quality,) cut it into 23 tracks, and zip it up and post it here for a nice, portable version. Please to dig it.
