Yes, this collection captures STC at their best, with material drawn from all stages of their career, and all the different line-ups. The sound reproduction is excellent, but I have had to lop off one star for: a) Angel Air's carelessness in including 'Raining In Your Heart' twice on CD One (was there no other track available?; b) the cover of Dylan's 'Hollis Brown' on CD one (not a good choice); and c) Colin Allen's rather poorly written and airbrushed sleevenotes (the drummer opining, for example, that "The reasons why John McGuinness & Jimmy Dewar were replaced is not important. Things like that happened in bands all the time." - I for one was dying to know the truth!). However, this is nitpicking. All STC and Maggie Bell fans should have this BBC release in their collections.

As far as I can tell, this is neither the complete BBC radio sessions, nor a straight reissue of the two volumes released on CD by Strange Fruit.

I have one of the Strange Fruit CDs, which contains some tracks which do not appear on the Proper double CD. The dozen tracks on mine, all recorded at the Paris Theatre in London, comprise 5 (Keep On Rollin'; Don't Think Twice It's Alright; Big Jim Salter; Mr Wizard; Goin' Down) listed as from 4.11.71 and a further 7 (On The Highway; Palace Of The King; Penicillin Blues; Sunset Cowboy; Niagra; Good Time Girl; Ioanian Highland Lilt) listed as from 12.10.72.

The notes give the earlier personnel as Bell, Harvey, Leahy, Thompson & Allen; McCulloch replaces Harvey on the later session.

More diehard fans than I may know if Strange Fruit and/or Proper got their facts right in all respects...

Format: Audio CD
I never thought a voice could sound like Janis Joplin and, however, be autonomous and not an imitation. This is the case for Magie Bell, who leads the vocals in this album. The material compiles the different formations of Stone the Crows, a band whose name shall be translated in moder english as "Hell with it". The group had Bell as the greatest brandname. However the band is not so chaotic as Janis' Big Bother and the Holding Company. She shares vocals in pretty good stuff such as "The touch of your loving hand" and "Rain in my heart" (this track appears in two different versions). Stone lost his guitar player in a tragedy - he got an unfortunate electrocution touching a mic ! - and they carried on, although this final period was not as good as their beginnings. In this phase the guitar had Jimmy McCulloch, who was a gifted player in both Thunderclap Newman and later with Paul McCartney's Wings. The seminal track in that period is the erotic "Peniciline Blues", sang with the proper obscenity by the great Maggie. This band is terrific, they sound great and Maggie is the best rock singer in Britain. Of course in folk rock you have Sandy Denny, but in rock I guess Maggie has not equals. The set is a proper introduction to the band and compiles their best songs. To get the original studio albums is difficult given they have not been re-issued. However in some legal download sites you may get them and Amazon sells them used. I praise this band and I am convinced Janis Joplin fans will love the energy of Maggie. She does not pretend to be another Janis and she is not the hippie or bluesy Janis. However, she is really good indeed and the only one who could claim to compete with her in Britain. Janis of course, well you know, is Janis. But Maggie has personality and she deserves to be explored with Stone the Crows, whose sound is quite good and better structured than Big Brother and the Holding Company.
