Plastic Magic 9-6-09 (Sonic's Rendezvous Band bootleg from 1-14-78)

Among other things on this show, half way through it has a whole bootleg set from SONIC'S RENDEZVOUS BAND. For those who don't know SRB, this Detroit "supergroup" featured Fred "Sonic" Smith (formerly of the MC5) , Scott Ashton (former drummer of the Stooges) Scott Morgan (formerly of The Rationals) and Gary Rasmussen (formerly of The Up). All of which were legendary groups of the 1960's Detroit rock scene. This set was recorded at the Masonic Auditorium in Detroit opening for The Ramones january 14th, 1978. It is kind of  a rough quality recording from a Maxell c-90 cassette. Not many recordings exist from this legendary group only releasing a 45 which contained "Sweet Nothin" and "City Slang" (both included here) I am re posting this show on this site because it got posted the first time on the old KXUA site just before it went down and i don't think it really got the traffic it might have...
