Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adrian Zupp
Maybe the greatest tribute you can pay a live album is to think to yourself, "I wish I'd been there." Live at the Deaf Club is precisely that kind of live album. Recorded in San Francisco in March 1979, this is the DKs at their peak as the short sharp-shock punksters with brains as well as attitude -- not to mention a sharp collective sense of humor.
