This compilation was taken from a Fall-tour of Northern-America, following the release of 'Warehouse (Songs & Stories)'. The band had traditionally toured playing material from the next album, with the occasional older track to fill out a 40 min or so set. But due to various problems, this tour involved the debut of just two new songs- the powerful-thrash 'Now that You Know Me' and the so-so 'Ain't No Water in the Well'. The band, unconsciously, were moving backwards to play older material. Which is great for this release, as we get to hear great versions of classic songs and it kinda creates a circle with 'Land Speed Record'. But as Hart says in the sleevenotes: "Nostalgia is a symptom of a dying culture". So, here are some great songs from a dying band...
The album opens with 'New Day Rising', a pulsing repetitive thrash, which segues into 'Girl Who Lives on Heaven Hill'- which is even faster than the version on the original album...Next we have three songs in sequence from 'Warehouse': a superior take of the sublime 'Standing in the Rain', a clear 'Back from Somewhere' & a dark 'Ice Cold Ice'...Greg Norton steps up for b-side 'Everytime'- which looks back to the sound of early songs like 'Let's Go Die'...A few more 'Warehouse'-tracks are next: a speedy 'Friend, You've Got to Fall' and a fractal-Coltrane-inflected 'She Floated Away'...The band look back to 'Everything Falls Apart' & 'Metal Circus' with a triad of Mould/Norton's 'From the Gut', Mould's 'Target' & Hart's 'It's Not Funny Anymore'...Proceedings are slowed by a bare, heartbreaking take of 'Hardly Getting Over It'- the sole track from the brilliant 'Candy Apple Grey'. This is one of Mould's greatest songs, heck, one of the greatest songs ever...

The two best things about this album are firstly, it's the nearest your gonna get to a 'greatest hits' album, and secondly, it's well produced. Mould's unique guitar sounds fantastic throughout this compilation of their best live performances of their best tracks. Personally, I find the production on all of the albums prior to 'Flip Your Wig' really muddy, which is a shame as these albums contain the majority of their best work. Buy this if you want to hear the best of Husker Du as it was intended to sound.

Finally given a CD release in 1994 this disc captures the mighty Hüsker Dü live on their final 1987 tour. This is everything that you need to know about the Dü: live, raw, intense, shredding and totally in yer face it reads like a greatest hits album and many of the takes on here top the fuzzblitz of the studio versions. Essential for any fan of hardcore punk/alt-rock/grunge or anyone curious to know where the likes of Pixies and Nirvana got their sound.

HASH(0x9f416528) out of 5 stars "Nostalgia is the symptom of a dying culture"---Grant Hart 4 April 2006
By mwreview - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I had just became a Bob Mould/Husker Du fanatic in the early-1990s and was buying up their back catalogue of stuff when this CD came out in 1994. Anything "new" from Husker Du was a BIG thing, so I snagged it as soon as it hit the record stores. This live CD was compiled from shows from 1987 when they were promoting Warehouse: Songs and Stories, their last studio release, so many of the tracks come from that album. That's OK by me, as I love that album.

I don't usually care for live records but there are a few track here that sound even better here than on the studio releases. "Girl Who Lives On Heaven Hill" is one example as Grant Hart doesn't scream it at the top of his lungs like on New Day Rising. "Keep Hanging On" (recorded on Bob Mould's birthday) is another example. This version makes me like the song even more. I also like how you can really hear Hart's backing vocals like on "Standing in the Rain" and "Ice Cold Ice." Sometimes the backing vocals sound lost on the studio albums, but Hart and Mould sound great together and it really adds to the tracks. Mould sings the chorus to "Ice Cold Ice" a little differently which I also like. "Everytime" is sung by Greg Norton, the bass player with the cool mustache. He has a rough, buzz-saw voice. The song is pretty good. I have it also on a Warehouse Interview record. Unfortunately, "She Floated Away" sounds a bit stale here as it's missing the backing vocals (Hart provided both lead and backing vocals on the studio version). "It's Not Funny anymore" also sounds great here. "Now That You Know Me" was a pleasant surprise. It was recorded on Grant Hart's Intolerance solo album. "Ain't No Water in the Well" is way too yeehaw for my tastes.

Fans can find a lot of omissions here: "Diane" comes to mind, as well as singles "Could You Be the One?", "Makes No Sense At all" (actually, I don't miss them that much), "I Don't Want to Know If you Are Lonely," "Pink Turns to Blue," "She's a Woman (And Now He is a Man)" (one of my all-time favorites), and "Charity, Chastity, Prudence and Hope," but I think it is a good mix of early stuff ("From the Gut", "Target," "Data Control" [great rendition here], "In a Free Land") and later material. It ends with an ode to the Ramones, "Sheena is a Punk Rocker." I remember Joey Ramones on MTV's 120 Minutes saying he thought Husker Du was a Ramones rip-off band. Husker Du may have been influenced by the Ramones, but they created a style all their own and developed their style with each album, and it shows here. The booklet has a history of the band and a few photos including a long colorized one from the "Could You Be the One?" music video.

HASH(0x9f41657c) out of 5 stars AWESOME Live Epitaph from this classic band 30 Mar. 2005
By Sakos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Husker Du were and are one of the best bands ever, one of those bands I wish I was old enough to be into when they were around or that they never broke up. That being said, this live album from 1994, 7 years after they broke up, could be seen as a last-ditch cash-in by Warner Bros. if it sucked, which it doesn't! This is visceral, punch-you-in-the-chest hardcore rock played at full decibel volume! And wow, can they play. Mould's guitar buzzsaw's through everything, Norton's underrated bass playing is like an earthquake, and Grant Hart's drums have never sounded stronger.....he sounds like he's going to break all his drumskins, he hits them so hard. And the songs....awesome versions of Ice Cold Ice, What's Going On, Celebrated Summer, Girl Who Lives on Heaven Hill, and more. Plus, three new songs they were working on before they broke up, Greg Norton's "Everytime" (a really heavy, savage rocker snarled by Greg Norton and Bob Mould), Grant Hart's catchy-as-hell and blistering "Now That You Know Me", and Bob Mould's "Ain't No Water In the Well" (which is actually the weakest of the 3 new ones...a romping blues stomper, nonetheless). All in all, even though Husker Du's entire catalog of studio albums are ESSENTIAL listening, after you've experienced those, you need to check this out!

HASH(0x9ffbf5d0) out of 5 stars This is what a live album should sound like 27 Jan. 1999
By Marie Manuelito - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The versions of many of the songs here are so powerful that they crush their lo-fi studio versions. Which is an almost impossible accomplishment. "Celebrated Summer", "New Day Rising", and "Keep Hanging On" roar like a buzzsaw, and Mould and Hart's singing throughout is even more anguished and exhausted than on the originals. "Hardly Getting Over It" is re-invented as a slow,hard electric cry of desperation. So many live albums fall into the "canned" sound that renders even the best live bands impotent. This album cuts as sharp as anyone would hope it would.

HASH(0x9f416804) out of 5 stars husker du is my Band with a capital B 17 Aug. 2000
By jayb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Husker Du came along at just the right time for me - their music's mixture of punk's power and pop's melody, the mighty incomparable guitar noise of Bob Mould, and Mould and drummer Grant Hart's songwriting genius. Their music affects me in the same way that the great bands of 60's pop did for older folks - music that just becomes part of your mental vocabulary.
That said, I'm only 17, and was born the year Metal Circus came out - I'd honestly give a finger off my right hand to see them live at the tour either from which this was drawn, or maybe circa New Day Rising or Flip Your Wig.
Anyway, less about me, more about the record. This is an awe-inspiring live document. Some favorites are missing -- the early hardcore choices are occasionally spotty ("From the Gut" and "Target" could have been happily replaced by "Blah Blah Blah" and "Everything Falls Apart" IMHO), and we don't have The Hits - "Could You Be the One?," "Makes No Sense at All," "8 Miles High," "Don't Want to Know If You Are Lonely, etc. However, for the most part, it doesn't matter in the slightest, because the album's strongest points are unexpected ones.
For instance, "Standing in the Rain." A great Warehouse track, it is impeded on album by the thin production and restrained feel. Here, however, Hart doubles Mould on vocals and knocks the song into the stratosphere, Hart's sweet harmonies encouraging Mould to step forward with a deeper, stronger bellow. (BTW, if you can, look for the "Up in the Air" boot - the band does the same thing to "These Important Years."). I could go on and on about just that song, but I'll cite other examples -- in retrospect, the production was often weak on HuDu records, but the band overcomes that here with sheer passion of delivery: "The Girl Who Lives On Heaven Hill" and "Powerline," "In a Free Land" and "Data Control," "Keep Hanging On" and "Books About UFO's," these songs are incredibly stronger than their recorded counterparts.
Prepare for liftoff, HuDudes!

HASH(0x9f416a44) out of 5 stars Earplugs Not Included... 1 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
and for good reason! Husker Du are one of those bands that are forever being cited as "seminal influences", especially during the early '90's grunge movement. Nirvana, and Green Day (especially pre "Dookie" Green Day) have molded their sounds, unsuccesfully I might add, to the power that was Husker Du, and this live album goes to prove this point even further. For those unfamiliar with the band, I have a hard time advising that you pick up this CD. It's not that it's bad, rather the power and energy of these live songs put their studio versions to shame. Hell, I bought most of the studio albums before hearing this, and I still have a hard time going back and listening to them the way I once did. The hollow, tinny drum sound of most studio Husker albums takes a while to get used to, but after hearing them live, you can never go back! As for the collection of songs on this CD, not a single one is worth skipping. From the insane hyper drum beat of "New Day Rising" to their cover of "Sheena is a Punk Rocker", this CD is a fine, career spanning colection of some of their best songs. Sure, some of the classics (or should I say singles) are missing ("Eight Miles High", "Don't Want to Know If You Are Lonely", "Makes No Sense At All", etc), but this doesn't matter. The near 77 minutes of fuzz, energy, and brilliant song writing will soon make you forget. This CD is, without a doubt, the way the Husker's were meant to be heard.
