This Spiritualized album, which the automatic review filtering software probably won't let me name, is a live recording of a concert in Los Angeles on November 21, 1992. Frontman Jason Pierce ("J. Spaceman") and the first incarnation of Spiritualized were touring their first LP Lazer Guided Melodies and they play from it "Angel Sigh", "Shine a Light" and "Smiles". The songs "Medication" and "Take Good Care of It" would later appear almost three years later on their second LP, Pure Phase. "Walking with Jesus" is carried over from Pierce's previous group Spaceman 3, who had recorded it in 1987.
Only a thousand or so pressings of this were ever made, and it was available exclusively via mail order. Available copies are consequently used and rather pricey. Though the compositions are good, it's hard to recommend going through the trouble of acquiring a physical copy of this recording. The sound is bootleg-quality, and that's especially disappointing after the audiophile clarity of LAZER GUIDED MELODIES. The performances are mainly simple run-throughs of the same music found on the albums, and there's a distinct lack of energy in Pierce's vocals. Only on "Medication" does the band sound free, and that's perhaps only because the song was still being worked out before the final version appeared on PURE PHASE.
