Suzanne Vega

April 10, 1985

Suzanne Vega visited SNAP in April 1985 for her second-ever live radio appearance. Ahead of her now-classic self-titled debut album, Vega offers perfectly rendered takes of songs from that record, as well as an early appearance of one of her most iconic numbers.

An essential and long-unheard document of Vega at a crucial moment in her early career.
