Flotsam and Jetsam Live ’85

This was posted a while back on YouTube and is definitely worth sharing and sharing again.  Just awesome. Their debut was great.  So glad I got to see them a few times in the 80s.

  1. I like their first couple albums and I wonder where they would be if Jason was still with them.

  2. Ha – I’ve watched this many times. Yes, that is some great footage and is also a source for many laughs.

    I’d like to get a straight DVD-R burn from the source. Only one speaker plays on this clip. But the sound quality is really good and raw given how old it is!

    Eric A.K cracks me up with his hair (and what appears to be some make up on the eyes -not sure?).

    Either way, if they did not pan the cameras out – you would know they weren’t killing it in from of a crowd with thousands, when in essence there is only a handful of peeps there.

    Which leads me to believe maybe this was a private label showcase and or the local TV station filmed it for a leased access local cable show or interview etc.

    Classic footage – kudos for that dude for uploading this one for sure. He has other vid’s, but this is by far the most note worthy.

    Still love “Hammerhead”…
