The first three platters from The Gun Club are simply a tremendous revelation and one can say that The Las Vegas Story might be considered as the masterpiece in this trilogy.
The feverish and nervous tension of their debut hinted into the Deep South and Delta Blues, though they came from L.A., telling stories about characters full of melancholy and desires like JLP was one on his own. Miami settled it a bit down and came up with more great songwriting and great picks from the past, but suffered from the mastering.
On this third studioalbum everything was well balanced to tell an epic tale. The heavy drum sound rides thru' the desert, there's great slide guitar work and heavy distorted sounds, deeply soaked in Country and Blues. Jeffreys songwriting is at his best, telling some cruel, cynical and lonesome stories. Every tune works out great, there are no weak tracks for my opinion. The mixing is great, the music is an awesome melting pot cooking up some weird Americana.
For me one of the must have platters from the mid 1980ies for sure.
5/5

The additional live tracks are download only and is of low recording quality. No where near the live quality of dance kalinda. The vinyl sounds great with no issues. Nice green vinyl.

What, exactly, is that bit of confusion that kicks off this Story?? "This, is the story of, mumble, mumble, who, mumble-"
