Previously released in a truncated form on a CD in 2010, now George Thorogood and the Destroyers’ legendary Boston 1982 show now arrives in its complete form (with 12 previously unreleased tracks) and on vinyl for the first time. This limited pressing is presented on red marbled vinyl alongside a poster and liner notes. It’s all part of Craft recording’s celebration of Rounder Records’ 50th anniversary. “1982 was an absolute high-water mark for us,” Thorogood said in a statement. “Everything was going our way and it shows in this recording…This is George Thorogood and The Destroyers at our best!”

This 2020 reissue of Live in Boston, 1982 adds 12 never-before-available live tracks to the previously released material. This live set captures the remarkable high point in the band’s career, having just come off of a tour opening for the Rolling Stones. The power and focus of the band at this point in their career can be heard in every track. This live release is also a fitting exclamation point to the Destroyers’ breakthrough days with Rounder Records. This release is available for the first time on vinyl and comes as a 4-LP set.
