The Dream Syndicate - Live at Tower Records, El Toro CA July 1982

Among the favorite shows from my teenage years, seeing this very line-up within a few months of this performance up through the release of The Days of Wine and Roses still stands out. A true timewarp seeing this and really great that this exists (as do four other songs). Even better is the record store setting for some Tower deja vu. Only downside is not enough Karl footage here but that said, he seemed to spend part of one his performances at the Country Club wrapped in a stage curtain behind sunglasses. Also listen to what purports to be from the live debut of the Dream Syndicate from January 1982. Kendra in great form with Karl just loping his SF ballroom/Sterling Morrison leads around "Too Little, Too Late." Timeless.
