Comments

  • 1977-1983, UK radio sessions. The poor quality and lack of completeness make this anthology of radio recordings not as good as it could be. There are 2 missing sessions; Kid Jensen from '78, and Almost Blue tracks from '81. Also You Belong To Me from the 2nd Peel session, Stranger In The House from the 3rd Peel session, and 2 Capital Radio tracks are missing.

Quality

  • '-' - Joachim Weisbrod {weisbrod@fzi.de}
  • Overrecorded and thin. Really badly edited. - Peter Kube
  • I'll put in a good word for this one. The sound could be better, but it's still acceptable and makes good listening. It's nice hearing Steve's keyboards on the My Aim Is True numbers, and this this take of Pills And Soap is rather unusual. - Paul Hosken
  • Performance: 8/10. Sound: 7/10. - John Steffes
