The Romantics "Bookie's Club" January 1979 (LINK UPDATED 06/12)

Before they released their first album, this radio show is a quite interesting testament to their energy on stage. Featuring a couple of songs that were never officially recorded (to my knowledge) plus a very early rendition of "what I Like About You" with some different lyrics and what sounded like an unsure Jimmy Marinos trying to find the right melody.

Thanks to an anonymous blog reader for sending this one in. I re-edited the track separators and ran it through some de-hissing software and that seemed to increase the sound quality slightly.
