Sometimes the best bootlegs come from….the band? In this particular case, that’s 100 percent true. Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx recently posted a link to a 1981 Motley Crue classic audio bootleg on his own Facebook page sharing it with his fans.

A true Motley Crue time capsule, the audio was recorded at a Crue show over three decades ago on October 2, 1981 at the Country Club in Resada, Calif. If you want to step back in time with the band, this bootleg provides the perfect vehicle.

Given the year it was recorded, the set list is chock full of songs from the band’s 1981 debut release ‘Too Fast For Love.’ It kicks off with ‘Take Me To The Top’ and runs through almost every track on the disc. They close the show with their classic cover of 'Helter Skelter' followed by 'Jailhouse Rock.'

In addition, the audio provides a very special treat for Crue fans in the form of a lost track. The second song performed is a tune called ‘Two Timer.’ According to Nikki, it’s “a song we only played live a few times and never recorded.”

Listen to the full audio below, fully endorsed by Nikki Sixx himself who advises, "It's obviously a bootleg but doesn't sound too bad."
