Soundboard recording

The Park West show is probably the definitive representative of Guitar Town era Steve Earle. It was professionally recorded, with a couple of tracks having since appeared on official releases - State Trooper and Good Ol' Boy (Gettin' Tough) as bonus tracks on different releases of Guitar Town itself, with the former also appearing as a B-side to the Back To The Wall single.

This is the entire show (a partial version of which also circulates as a single disc - with additional filler from the Atlanta Copperhead Road show - under the the title of Living Dangerously.) The two releases are probably sourced from the same recording - Living Dangerously might have marginally better sound (or it could just be a result of the volume level being slightly higher on that one).

In its complete form the Park West show boasts not only every track from Guitar Town but also no fewer than seven which were to appear on Exit 0 the following year (only I Ain't Ever Satisfied, The Rain Came Down and It's All Up To You are absent) and an early rendition of The Devil's Right Hand (which had just been committed to record by Waylon Jennings).
