Little Johnny Jewel by Television

This particular song can be found in the "Blow up". A live double CD of punk/post punk group Television. Recorded with primitive equipment in the late 70's, the album manages to capture the raw live sound of Television when they were kings. But one song in the second CD really shines through. Who cares if the sound is not perfect. It is good enough. Prepare for a stunning 8 minute solo (from a total of 14.56 for the whole song). This is the song that made the reputation of Television. Impossible to find until this CD came out, it has been a song of legend for Television fans everywhere. Verlaine and Lloyd play as if there was no tomorrow. And then he loses his senses...
