Totally plugged in! Those of us who experienced it first-hand already know the simple truth: The Bad Examples
were one of the great American rock & roll bands, especially in concert. To be truthful, they were more than one great band, as the changes in the line-up through the years brought out the strengths of the new members, and showed off new aspects of Ralph Covert's songwriting.
This disc documents the Examples' final night, a five-hour celebration ending their existence as an ongoing entity. The chosen venue was FitzGerald's, just outside of Chicago, one of America's finest clubs and a longtime favorite of both fans and the band. They chose to chronogically encapsulate their career onstage.
With each set, a different line-up of the band took the stage, so that over the course of the night we were taken on a magical history tour of 5000 days of The Bad Examples. The songs selected here capture the spirit of their past and that climactic night.
