J Mascis is no stranger to goin' acoustic now, with a couple solo records of folk and Americana under his belt. But he had to start somewhere, and 'Live at CBGB's: The First Acoustic Show' documents him getting a foot in the door of sparseness for the first time. Recorded in 1993, a few months after Dinosaur Jr. released 'Where You Been', another record of triumphant electric guitar 'n' fuzz, 'Live at CBGB's' is a complete transformation.

7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 17th February 2015

It's weird hearing J Mascis as an acoustic artist. I'm so used to hearing that voice backed up with a loud wall of guitar. Obviously since I first hard this, he's become a master of the art (ish). "Get Me" works well in this format as the the Lynyrd Skynyrd cover "Every Mother's Son". "Repulsion" surprised me a bit as it also works well as an acoustic song. Testament to J. Mascis as a songwriter I guess. It's certainly not a run through his greatest hits, I guess he's chosen the songs that will work best stripped back. Overall it's a bit messy and probably for fans and completists only.
