As a long time Circle Jerks fan and an occasional correspondant with Keith Morris, I'm embarrassed to say that of all the CJ's albums available, this one I waited until last week to get. Oops. But I must say, I'm glad I did. Gig is an outstanding example of just why I love this band and a nice refresher course covering all but their 1995 album. I was never fortunate enough to see them live, yet, so, the amazing part is how tight this band was on stage. Keith, Zander, Keith C. and Greg don't miss a note. Even better, the sound recording is top notch. Excellent car jammin' album. The Circle Jerks were tied for first when it came to west coast hardcore punk in the early 80's and this is why. The only gripe I have with the release is that the liner notes tell us where the shows were recorded but not when. My guess is around 1990 or 1991, but dang it, I want specifics!
