So far the BEST SOUNDING Unplugged yet (no static during Boys Don't Cry
and the Walk, like with the Acoustic Daze
boot and others).
This is a must have! Although the sound
isn't always mint, it's the best sounding
Unplugged Version out there. I especially
dig my favorite song Boys Don't Cry and
the kazoos in The Walk are classic. Buy
it if you find it!
Well this was a good bootleg.
But the MTV unplugged was cut very much,
they played more than six songs one of which
being a letter to elise (On the Video Play Out).
The Belgium concert rules. Over all a good disc, buy it if you see it.
I absolutely love this bootleg. It's a nice crisp
recording of Unplugged...and, despite the fumbles in
The Drowning Man, the Belgium show is absolutely GREAT.
There's a nice little drum solo in the middle of Primary
that's pretty interesting...
Unplugged stuff is good to have on CD but no more than if you'd
taped it yourself off TV. The Belgian concert is where this disc
really shines. This is the famous concert where Simon railed against
the establishment with:
Fuck Robert Palmer, Fuck Rock n Roll. Unfortunately the
version of A Forest which included that quote is not
here. The rest of the set is great though. The
Holy Hour brought me back to the late
'97 radio festival in Seattle where I saw them perform
it finally. In Your House, M and Play for Today
sound different without the keyboard parts, but Robert tries to
make a little more noise with his guitar to compensate.
It is a very intense show but without the colicky,
simmering anger present on the M bootleg
recorded less than a year later.
Accuracy is a nice surprise as is Fire in Cairo,
probably the last time they were played as part of a regular set list.
As someone else above mentioned, Primary has a drum break
in the middle: it's kindof lame though, Robert and Simon just stop
playing and Lol does the SAME beat for about a minute and then
Robert kind of just starts them off again. At least it's a
different version albeit not one that adds a new dynamic to it.
Get this disc just for the Belgium stuff.. By the way, it
really annoys me that Robert announces The Blood as from the
Top album. It's just such a hideous mistake, I just thought
I'd throw that in.
Neither show is complete, but both are essential. Both radio
broadcast, but the Werchter show is a bit old so it's quality
has decreased. On the other hand, it's a very slight
decrease in quality. Trust me, i'm picky about sound
quality. What better way to understand the intensity
of the Picture Show tour than to experience it on
this recording? There are some real rareties here. Buy it!!
One of the highest quality bootlegs out. and best of all...it has
a green back!!! (or at least my copy does). A superb recording of
unplugged, but it could've used a letter to elise...the live
concert in Belgium dates to 81...the prime faith period. A
faster version of fire in cairo and an extended primary
(because robert breaks a string???) highlights are the
walk (with kazoos), m, and 10:15.
Lowlights are just like heaven, the funeral party,
and the blood (rob messes up a lot). Over all, an excellent
disc...buy it if you can find it. It's hard to find out this way....
The unplugged show is pretty good, but a few songs were left off,
like A Letter to Elise, which is on the Play Out video.
The recording is better than other unplugged recordings,
but the hilight is the second half of the disc. What
an awesome '81 show. All Cats are Grey is
excellent, and so are The Holy Hour and
The Funeral Party. Lol fumbles a bit on
The Drowning Man and has a little drum
solo on Primary. Accuracy and Fire in Cairo
is a suprise. It's a bit weird to hear
In Your House and Play for Today without
the keyboards though. But an excellent
disc, if you see it, buy it!
Not a bad bootleg. The Unplugged songs are really good.
Just Like Heaven is excellent and I love the
version of The Walk. The rest of the cd is a
radio broadcast from 1981. Its good. I paid
like $24 for this one and I think it
was worth it.
i burst out laughing when i heard the kazoos on the walk.
i could just picture porl sitting there on a red velvet
pillow wearing some cotton shirt with a paisley design,
candles and blue lighting surrounding him, playing
the kazoo! :D hehehe!
i enjoyed the tracks they played from unplugged,
i but i was expecting there to be more than six
.. i was hoping a letter to elise and
the big hand would be on there..
the tracks from the belgium show are awesome!
so many obscure songs on one cd! i think that
m is my favorite of all of those! overall, i
think this cd was a good buy..
I love this! I'm just getting into the bootleg thing and I was quite disappointed with my first, but this is great! There are some great pictures and the track list is awesome. I'd probably buy anything with All Cats Are Grey anyways. Hmmmm, if I only I could find a live version of Birdmad Girl
I have an incredible amount of time of the raio show recording on this the sound quality is superb and the rendition of M in particular is astounding!
If anyone has any similar quality bootlegs let me know
very coo' the live was good unplugged ok but kind of goofy. its a wierd mixed cd happy bouncy songs with a live show that
just makes you want to cry and die and fry while you tie a lie into a trippyless high.
i likes cuzz its got most songs from faith except the tiltle track i wanted to here him cry as he walked off the stage like
many other shows. cry robbie cry dont lie in the stie. so go buy and i wont deny yo' pleasures
