In the brooding reverberations of a music scene that has since become virtual folklore, Alice In Chains left a beer-soaked stage as glam-metal merchants Diamond Lie, returning two years later in 1989 with a Columbia contract on the strength of their demo tape.

Alice In Chains will always be synonymous with the 'grunge' scene and while they were pioneers of the genre alongside fellow Seattle noise grinders Nirvana, they are equally valued as a tour-de-force in metal. Their California shows at La Reina, Sheraton and the Westminster Forum in September 1990 define their celebratory status as Seattle grunge icons, but also reveal the band's raw, inner sanctum.

Considered by many fans to be one of their finest concerts, the La Reina show is a significant reminder of the band's embryonic fire and depth. Promoting their debut album Facelift and on the cusp of a new musical phenomenon, this is the legendary Alice In Chains. Echoes proudly presents the entire original KPFK 90.7 FM broadcast of Alice In Chains live at La Reina, Sheraton on 15th September 1990.

Professionally re-mastered original broadcast with background liners and rare archival photos.
