Guitar Crusher - Live At Quasimodo (re-post)

Live (no audience) recording from 1987 at the Quasimodo club in Berlin. Nice funky blues and as it's a "dummy head" recording it's best to listen to it with headphones.
If you're a bit of a dummy like me read this article for an explanation of what a dummy head recording is.
Thanks go to someone for sharing.
