The Avengers - The American In Me CD
"'The American In Me' was a torn flag flown by the Avengers... the best punk band in San Francisco, in moments the best in the country. [Their songs were] like a rock through the window that separates the true from the false." -from liner notes by Greil Marcus
Recorded in 1978-79, this sonic manifesto contains 8 live tracks and 4 previously unreleased studio tracks -- including 2 alternate takes from the infamous sessions produced by Sex Pistol, Steve Jones.
The CD came with a 16 page booklet of photos, show lists, flyers and liner notes written by Greil Marcus, as well as Penelope's liner notes about the Waldorf show.
