Smack Down!! – Kingsmen: Round 2

kingsmen1987mississippilive1502015 sees the return of one of the blogs most popular features; Smack Down.  Coming off the heels of a great 2014, I thought it fitting the first Smack Down of 2015 should feature the Kingsmen.  Two of the group’s biggest live recordings pitted against each other.  A musical mash-up of each album is provided.  Vote on your choice.
