Sunday Morning Video: The Blasters Live In 1982

I'd never heard of this teevee special until last night. All I know is what was written in this blog post and that Lee Allen, Willie Dixon, and Carl Perkins were the Blasters' guest stars. Here's the set list:

Crazy Baby; This Is It; Border Radio; I’m Shakin’; Tag Along; Stop the Clock; Go, Go, Go; Blue Suede Shoes (with Carl Perkins); Honey Don’t (with Carl Perkins); Rock-a-Billy Fever (with Carl Perkins); American Music; Hollywood Bed; Built for Comfort (with Willie Dixon); I’m Ready (with Willie Dixon); Marie, Marie; So Long Baby Goodbye; Boppin’ the Blues (with Carl Perkins)

    My guess would be the PBS series “Soundstage”.
    I have a recording (on Beta, so…) of Marshall Crenshaw doing an hour on Soundstage from right about then.

    Yup, says ‘Soundstage’ at the very end.

    This is fantastic. Thank you.

    Looked around the internet, and found a couple things:
    – a Blasters newletter that describes the circumstances around the Soundstage appearance
    http://www.blastersnewsletter.com/newsletter/amer33.htm
    – a list of shows they played in those early years
    (I was at the Oct 1981 show in Madison, the July 4th 1984 show at Summerfest, and one of the shows at the Hollywood Palace, July ’83, maybe)
