Format: Audio CD
I make no bones about the fact that I'm a hardcore Hicks fan. For the newcomer, he's a very dark, intelligent comedian who's not afraid to say what he thinks, no matter who might be offended. Bad language abounds, but it seems perversely appropriate in many cases. Sadly he died in the early 90's, so his material focuses on a relatively narrow band of (largely American) social and political history (conspiracy theorists will enjoy his musings on JFK).

As for this CD, the downside is that a substantial amount of the material has been heard on many of his other CDs (in particular "Shock and Awe", which is the previous, abridged release of this show in Oxford, 1992). However, this release is a two-disk, unedited recording of that performance and there are some genuinely funny and insightful moments which have not been heard before.

My advice for newcomers is get this CD if you want the full Hicks experience which includes the sort of ramblings that rarely make most comedy releases. If you like your delivery short and snappy, get "Shock and Awe". For Hicks fanatics, get this CD to hear Bill at his most relaxed whilst in the company of an appreciative and responsive audience, and savour his classic material intermingled with some genuinely clever improvisation which reveals yet more depth to the legend. You will not be disappointed.

Format: Audio CD
First of all this is the same concert that was previously released as 'Shock & Awe', with a hefty chunk (about an hour by my count) of extra material that was not on 'Shock & Awe' due to it being a very poor quality recording and only recently digitally tuned up - much like what they did for the DVD of 'Sane Man'. So if you own 'Shock & Awe' this is repetitive but the extra material makes it well worth it, in particular an extended twenty minutes of rant on the subject of drugs/music/etc is fantastic.
If you're new to Bill Hicks this is a good starting point, a concert in Oxford (Hicks got better reception here than in the states and it really shows in their reactions and that he's a lot more playful with them) in 1992 just after Bush Sr lost to Clinton and the LA riots were fresh in the world's memory, needless to say both get a lot of time in the concert. So, for the newcomers out there Bill Hicks was a revolutionary and hilarious political stand-up comic whose material will offend you if you're easily offended and quite possibly if you aren't. He was a blindingly intelligent, highly subversive, relentless and often aggressive act who has been dead over a decade (he died tragically young aged 32 from pancreatic cancer) and yet is still relevant and hilarious because his targets were institutions and attitudes that still exist today and haven't changed a bit. I'd highly recommend you buy this if you're new to Hicks because it's absolutely typical of his material, is one of the longest recordings out there and is one of his funniest shows.

Format: Audio CD
Recorded in Oxford, England (and with the material missing from Shock and Awe) this CD is another gem showing Bill at his funniest. This has no new material, but shows how he adapted his act for different audiences and how the English react to his wit and humour. I love it that he can make you laugh and open your eyes wide to the irony in life at the same time. His political jokes are sharp and witty and his life observations are not only true, but hilarious. The jokes about the gulf war and George Bush are especially funny and pertinent taking into account modern developments. Sadly the 'Goat Boy' jokes go on a touch too long and wear a bit thin, but that's a minor fault. This isn't as caustic as Rant in E-Minor, or as fresh as Dangerous, but it is a great album regardless. Not necessarily one to share with your mum, but one to share with all your friends, family and colleagues and as many people as possible!!! Simply brilliant.

Bill Hicks (1961-1994) had a style of interaction and delivery that made him more than a comedian, and raised his profound insights of life to the level of philosophy. He doesn't just entertain, he shares his being with you. This performance was recorded on the 11th of November, 1992, at the Oxford Playhouse, England. Just fifteen months later he died from pancreatic cancer. This particular night, however, he was at the top of his game, and performing like a world class comic genius.

This 2 CD set was released in 2003 and carries the full title of 'Bill Hicks Salvation - Oxford November 11, 1992.' An edited version of this performance is also available entitled 'Shock and Awe - Live At The Oxford Playhouse 11.11.92.' The inner-sleeve of the CD cover contains eight very positive press reports about Hicks' performances from University Student nespapers, The Irish and Birmingham posts, and The List (Scotland). Following these is a quote from Bill Hicks himself; 'We could still evolve - even in the elventh hour. If I can stop smoking, anything is possible.'

Disc One.
1) Intro. 2) Ding Dong. 3) Puppet People. 4) Kennedy & The Warren Commission. 5) Smoking. 6) Polls. 7) Dick Jokes. 8) News/Movies/Religion.

Disco Two.
1) Religion/Drugs. 2) Film. 3) Kids. 4) Fries. 5) Backed Up. 8) Sleep & The Message.

The combined running time for both these discs is just under two hours in length. This a pure Bill Hicks performance with an audience who actually understands where he is coming from, and encouraging him at every turn. There is a photograph of Bills Hicks on the inner sleeve stood outside of Oxford University.
