DOWNLOAD: The Feelies - Crazy Rhythms (MP3)

The FeeliesThe Feelies will be launching the ATP NY weekend on Friday (Sept. 11th) as the day's second set. They'll be playing their 1980 album Crazy Rhythms in full, starting at 4:45pm.

They play another Catskills show in Woodstock, NY, the next night, before retreating to the familiar urban landscape of NYC for a gig at Southpaw on September 13th. At that show, the band will play two sets (regular + Crazy Rhythms?). Tickets are still on sale.

The Feelies' first two records, Crazy Rhythms and 1986's The Good Earth, were both reissued on CD earlier this week on Bar/None Records. The LP versions for both will be out September 22nd.

Unlike Crazy Rhythms' 1990 reissue, which ends with a by-the-book cover of the Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black" (recorded in a different session with a modified lineup), the new version, and presumably their set on Friday, ends with the title track's caffeine-driven jam. Check out the song, posted above.

That's not to say the new discs are without extras. The full details on those albums (and their rare/demo bonus tracks) are below...
