Untamed Youth - Live in Vegas LP (Estrus)
Frank Kozik did the eyecatching sleeve for this live Untamed Youth album. Pretty well captures all the atmosphere of Sin City, without being a rehash of some of the common Kozik themes (I'm not a big fan of some other Kozik motifs). The record was released in 1995 from a 1992 performance. For the uninitiated, the Untamed Youth are/were led by guitarman extraordinaire Deke Dickerson, and they are one of the earliest and finest modern combos doing the Trashmen-style combination of surf instros with stompin' vocal numbers. Musically the recording is a little thin on this LP, but it's still a great sleeve housing the sounds from a great show.
