George Thorogood Live 1986

Live is the first official live album by George Thorogood and the Destroyers.

It was recorded at the Cincinnati Gardens in Ohio on 23 May, 1986.

A 2010 archive release of Live In Boston 1982 means that this is no longer the earliest example of Thorogood live.

It is however the best known and most successful as it has been awarded platinum disc status for album sales in the USA.

George Thorogood Live In Boston 1982

Live In Boston 1982 is a live album by George Thorogood and the Destroyers.

It was recorded at the Bradford Ballroom in 1982 but wasn’t released until 2010.

I don’t have a recording date but the fact that Bad To The Bone, their first single from 1982 is not on the recording, it suggests that it was before August. Since Nobody But Me, New Boogie Chillun, Miss LuAnn and As the Years Go Passing By were on the Bad To The Bone album it was probably close to the time of recording.
