The boy Gedge has written some of the best love songs of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Era. You may dispute this, but I’m right and you’re wrong!‘ John Peel.

The Wedding Present have had eighteen UK Top 40 hit singles… not bad for a band that has, from its inception, stubbornly refused to play the record industry’s game. In 1985 David Lewis Gedge boarded a ... Read more in Amazon's The Wedding Present Store

5.0 out of 5 stars The Golden Period.... 5 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I know many will disagree but I think this captures their best period. Post George Best and pre Bizarro with a mixture of tracks from each. The sound is surprisingly good considering how primitive concert recording equipment was 26 years ago. The band as ever, are in fine fettle and Mr Gedge is as witty as ever with his dry acerbic banter between songs.

Heartily recommended, can't for the life of me think why anyone would give it 4 stars because you "can't beat being there". Sometimes, a recording as good as this can take you back. 26 years to be precise.

4.0 out of 5 stars [Soggy] Wedding Present 15 Jan 2014
By Big Zoot Fan - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love the music, but hate, HATE, the way it was delivered to me today. Even with the plastic wrapping around the jewel case, the liner notes were SOAKING WET. Did you guys send it to me strapped to the top of a truck?! Amazon gets an "F" grade on the shipment. Also, STOP USING PADDED ENVELOPES TO SHIP CDs! The jewel case (including the one with this item) always show up with cracks in them.
4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting time for the Weddoes... 21 Oct 2010
By Zhimbo - Published on
Format:Audio CD
In the ongoing series of live releases, this set is distinctly superior in sound quality to the "1987" collection. The Rotterdam set is a bit warm/murky sounding, and the Valencia set is distinctly brighter and crisper. The performances are generally good with some flubs here and there. Gedge's stage chatter is a bit awkward, presumably due to a language barrier with much of the crowd in both sets.

But these releases are pretty much aimed at the hardcore Wedding Present-phile, and if you're overwhelmed by the sheer volume of material that continues to be released (or underwhelmed by the 1987 set, as I was), you're probably wondering why this release, in particular, is worthwhile. What makes it worthwhile is the introduction of new, "Bizarro"-era songs into the set lists. The Bizarro album introduced a more ambitious sound and approach, and it's interesting hearing these early versions of familiar songs (some songs are played for the first time before an audience!). "Be Honest", in particular, has a very, very different approach from the rather spare studio version that came later, while "Kennedy" sounds much more like an an early song - more jittery-jangle, less wall-of-sound.

I'm very much looking forward to rest of this series!
