Sonic Youth have mixed and remastered a new live LP titled ‘Smart Bar’. Originally taped onto cassette during the band’s ‘Bad Moon Rising’ promotional tour in 1985, it features much of said LP, plus early renditions of classics-to-be ‘Secret Girl’ and ‘Expressway To Yr Skull’ and a previously unreleased version of ‘Kat N Hat’.

The collection has its physical and digital release via SY’s own label Goofin Records on 12 Nov. Meanwhile, here’s a strictly unofficial (and unmastered) play of ‘I Love Her All The Time’, also circa 1985:
