Download a Live/Unreleased “Repercussion”-themed dB’s Album

dB's - Repercussion REVISITED front

McLovin’ those deebs….

By Uncle Blurt

We love the dB’s around here, and have loved ‘em since the early ‘80s, so that makes us doubly appreciative of the most excellent dB’s-centric music blog The dB’s Repercussion. (Tagline: “Every cult band needs a cult.”) It features topnotch writing and, frequently, rare or unusual tracks for free download—all with the musicians’ permission, of course.

So the latest post at the site is particularly special: a free download of what the folks there are calling Repercussion – The Album Revisited. It takes the original 13-song tracklisting of the group’s second album Repercussion and synchs up 13 live versions and demos of the same tunes, and the quality is pretty sweet, too. (There’s also a 14th “mystery track” for all you hardcore fans and ‘deebs geeks.)
