Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, Ork Records CD sets are time capsules of '70s punk and more

"Teenage Jesus and the Jerks: Live 1977-1979" contains 29 songs recorded in the mid-'70s. The music sounds like next week. ("Baby Doll" could easily be on the new Savages album, "Adore Life," give or take a few choices.) These recordings were not available until now.

"Ork Records: New York, New York" is a two-CD set of 49 songs recorded in the mid-'70s. With a few exceptions, the music sounds like mid-'70s. These recordings were available for a moment, but for many of us they might not as well have been.
