HASH(0x95721300) out of 5 stars It's about time . . . 12 Jun. 2003
By aliled - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was the missing link in the history of postpunk on CD. It's a very affordable 2xCD compiling most of Essential Logic's recorded moments, as well as nearly all of Lora's solo stuff, plus many recent tunes.
Lora was 16 when she became the saxophonist for X-Ray Spex and played on their first 7", "Oh Bondage, Up Yours!" for Virgin Records. Soon after, she was booted from the band due to a clash of personalities, but by this time she'd been writing her own material, such as "Petrol Pump Blues" (which showed up in altered form on her solo LP) and drawing notice for her compelling stage presence. She began working on her own material and appeared on songs by Kollaa Kestaa, the Stranglers, Dennis Bovell, the Raincoats and Swell Maps, and ultimately released the "Aerosol Burns" single, both sides of which appear here. Few debut singles so definitively captured such a complete and thoroughly unique sound. Intrigued, Virgin offered a deal, which resulted in the four-song "Wake Up" EP. Unfortunately, the photo of the (Disney character) March Hare that Lora took for the cover resulted in a lawsuit threat, and the EP was deleted shortly after release. Virgin dropped the band.
Lora soon signed with Rough Trade and released an album, "Beat Rhythm News" (7 of 9 songs here), a single taken from the album, "Popcorn Boy", (included but without its flipside). Membership shuffles appear to have slowed progress for the next couple of years, though Lora did contribute vocals and sax to two Red Crayola LPs as well as five singles. In the next two years, three Essential Logic 7"s were released - "Eugene" / "Tame The Neighbours" (only the b-side included here), "Music Is A Better Noise" / "Moontown" (both here) and one last Essential Logic single, "Fanfare In The Garden" (here) and a newly mixed song from the 1979 album sessions, "The Captain" (not here).
In 1981, a solo Lora Logic 7" / 12" appeared, "Wonderful Offer" / "Stereo", (both here, though the 12" version of "Wonderful Offer" and its bonus track "Rather Than Repeat" are not). The "Pedigree Charm" LP followed in 1982, it contained eight new tracks (7 of them here).
For a long time, that was it. Lora continued to record in the company of friends, but involvement in the International Society For Krsna Consciousness seemed to preclude attempts at a commercial career. Through the years, bits of news would creep out - Lora sang back-up on Boy George's "Bow Down" single, and played sax on X-Ray Spex's "Conscious Consumer" album in 1995, showing her her sax skills to be as inventive and entertaining as always.
This 2xCD includes roughly half the unreleased material I've heard, as well as the Red Crayola 7" track, "Born In Flames". The new material is slightly more variable in quality and tone, which is to be expected as it was recorded with smaller budgets and a wider variety of players, over a much longer span of time. Generally speaking, it's a little less quirky than much of what came before; at at the same time everything she's done has been a bit smoother than what came before. Thankfully, even the abundantly commercial material such as "On The Internet" (very pop X-Ray Spex sounding) and the trip-hoppy "Under The Great City" still retain all the charm and color of even Lora's earliest material.
Special mention must be made of Phil Legg, the guitarist and coproducer on all the '78-'82 material. He had a great touch in the studio and was an incredibly imaginative guitarist who later went on to success behind the board for Terence Trent D'Arby, Erasure, Des'ree and others.
This review is primarily meant to clear up discography questions; to those who've heard it, the music speaks for itself. Early Essential Logic material was often compared to the more shambolic acts in rock history - Beefheart, Zappa, etc. Lora used to tell interviewers she'd never even heard of them. Now that much of postpunk's legacy has been uncovered and become better known to the music-loving public, it's easy to say that if you like Raincoats, Red Crayola, the Gist, This Heat et al, you'll love this stuff. It's also appealed to lovers of the Canterbury / Recommended Records sound I've played it too, though it's much more direct and fun than most of that. Lora's solo material had a very interesting jazzy underpinning that add a lot of depth to her solid pop writing, and of course folks like Sean Oliver (of the Pop Group / Rip Rig And Panic) and Charles Hayward (This Heat) - even one of the songwriters from Blondie and a guy from Bad Manners - pop up on various tracks.
Lyrically, Lora was tough to read, but it's fair to say that many of her songs were poetic questionings of attitudes and things around her. She's become a bit more sure of herself in more recent recordings, but there's still a wide-eyed sense of wonder in her music.
It's well [worth it]for two discs and 35 wonderful songs, so go for it. And if you want more info on Lora Logic, feel free to e-mail me at aliled@yahoo.com for more history and an interview or two.

HASH(0x959bc558) out of 5 stars Terrible sound quality for a great artist who deserved much more. 17 Jun. 2006
By Scott Davies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This literally has to be the worst quality CD I've heard, and I've heard a LOT of bad quality CD's. The sources appear to be bad quality records and low-fi cassette tapes. Some are even higher end compressed MP3's! The sound ranges from thuddy and dull to distorted and unpleasant. I bought the CD as soon as it was released, and promptly disposed of it. It looks like the Kill Rock Stars is turning out to be another disappointing label who is willing to cut corners when it comes to obtaining good sources and quality mastering for the sake of saving a few $$. I decided to give their recent Delta 5 CD a try and found the Rough Trade singles were also poorly remastered vinyl transfers. I will not be purchasing another KRS CD.

There has be an increasing amount of CD's released with poor quality sound from both major and indie labels, and I'm happy to see others pointing out such things on Amazon. I am only too glad to assist because these shoddy CD's need to stop!

HASH(0x959bcce4) out of 5 stars another classic unearthed...... 18 Jun. 2003
By squarehawk2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
it seems as of late there have been many re-releases of disco-punk of the late '70s to '80s, but the truly interesting and key players seem to but left out by this quick rash of retro revival. however this is one to check out. Lora Logic was there at the beginning of it all (w/ X-ray Spex of course) in the punk world, but after being shoved out she learned to survive and mutate into composing brillant quirky numbers that were both political and personal without proclaiming to be obviously either. With a strange sweet voice, sax in hand and riddim from her band the closest group that compare would've been the Raincoats in their "Moving" period or Delta 5's "Mind Your Own Business" 7". both discs contain wonderful cuts, despite odd songs here and there, all spanning from (mostly) early '80s to the late '90s. it's worth inspection just due to the fact one can understand what origin all these "new wave post-punkers" are trying to rip off.

HASH(0x957345b8) out of 5 stars Always did like them. Sax and punk flavor, yow. 24 Nov. 2007
By Chris bct - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's tough to get their original records. This 2xcd set brings together a ton of their music and most of it is just what yer lookin' for if yer into Essential Logic, gals creating funk based sax flavored punk attitude music. Nice, real nice. Glad I bought it. UK born music in a time of ESG & Delta 5, even Gang of Four. Think lighter James Chance & the Contortions. Sweet stuff folks.

HASH(0x95734d98) out of 5 stars certainly different 25 Jan. 2006
By da guru - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i used to have the album beat rhythm news on vinyl, and played it to death, it was so different from other punk /new wave albums of the time. with its funky sounding bass lines and lora logics warbling voice and sax.This cd set brings together her early material strange as it was but interesting,through to her later stuff which sounds more commercial,its a shame that on the first few tracks they didnt put the track (alkaline loaf) in as well as that would have completed the beat rhythm news album its great this is out on cd anyway it brings back memories.
