At last, after all the rip off bootlegs a great sound quality live recording (It's been available as a free download for years but not many new about it)
Apart from the songs originaly on Captain locheed (which quite simply could not be improved on) all the other solo stuff(with the exception of Lord Of The Hornets) sounds superior here live than on the studio albums. He sings them better with much more umph and with a rock guitar sound which adds so much to songs like Acid Rain, Ned ludd, All the Machines are Quiet and The Ballad of Deano.
Of the hawkwind tracks, they dont really manage to do Robot, Quark and Orgone Accumulator justice but they do a surprisingly good version of Damnation Alley and their Days of the Underground is fantastic
There are some real Gems here from an underated singer/songwiter and performer.
The fact that there are only three of them and a drum machine and obviously only half a dozen people in the audience to listen to Calvert really belting out the vocals is really sad but nonetheless, forget live in manchester, cardiff, newcastle, middlesbrough and all those other rip off poor sound quality cd's, buy this one.
