Live rocks the Roxy in “Pain Lies on the Riverside” live recording from 25th anniversary “Mental Jewelry” reissue

Steve Jennings/WireImageLive will reissue their 1991 album Mental Jewelry on August 11 in honor of its recent 25th anniversary. Along with a remastered version of the original record, the reissue will include a bonus disc of a live show recorded at the Roxy in Los Angeles July 16, 1992.

From that show, you can listen to the band’s performance of the single “Pain Lies on the Riverside” now via RollingStone.com.

“I was really surprised to hear and experience again how fully formed we were as a young band by the time we played the Roxy show,” frontman Ed Kowalczyk tells Rolling Stone.

“I recall Ed and I randomly meeting Little Richard in front of our hotel earlier that day,” adds guitarist Chad Taylor. “He was in full makeup at 10 a.m. — it was definitely a wake-up call to the fact that we were about to perform in Hollywood. We boldly invited him to attend the show and offered to put him on our guest list; he said, ‘Don’t worry, they know who I am!’ I guess that’s the perfect reply from one of the fathers of rock music.”

After leaving the band in 2009, Kowalczyk re-joined Live in 2016. The band has been touring the festival circuit this summer, and they’re opening for Guns N’ Roses for two U.S. dates in August.
