Love Tractor

For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we turn to Slicing Up Eyeballs reader Walt, who shared with us this full 90-minute recording of classic Athens, Ga., alt-rockers Love Tractor performing a free show on the University of California at Los Angeles campus on Feb. 12, 1987. Walt writes: “I’ve stored it away for years, but finally got around to uploading it.”

    15 sounds like an early version of “Christ Among the Children” which appeared on The Sky At Night in 2001.

    17 is a version of an old bluegrass song called “Watermelon on the Vine”.
