Format: Audio CD
'The Sessions of the Damned' brings together all the Damned's greatest hits together with some lesser known material, all live. The album boasts a superb hard, raw sound. Particularly gripping in my opinion are the versions it contains of 'New Rose', 'Stab Your Back' and 'Smash it Up'. I would certainly recommend this CD to hardened 'Damned' fans, and also to any punk fans yet to experience the joys of the Damned. This album really gives an insight into what punk was all about, and its timeless quality is relived here in all its glory. An excellent buy, and cheap at the same time.

Many reasons to own this CD. 6 Dec. 2000
By Carl Isonhart - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Sure, maybe you have these songs in the other full length releases by The Damned or on there MANY compilation CD's. But you DO NOT have these versions of these songs. This version of "Sick Of Being Sick" is worth the price of the CD in itself. Never has this kind of angst been captured by the band as it is on this song. "Smash It Up" on this release is parts 2 and 3! Part 3 is brilliant just so that you know. "I'm Bored" (shouldn't that be "I'm so Bored"?) has a very humorous and typical Damned take on Gary Numans "Cars" hidden in it. "Curtain Call" is as stunning as ever. "Is It A Dream" is amazing to have here due to this has Captain playing on it and we get to see what he may have brought to the recording session of "Phantasmagoria". Hearing this makes me really wish he had stuck around. "Nasty" is just as great as always. "We Love You" is a Stones cover that I am noy familiar with, but I still love it. My only complaint with this release is that they could have updated the liner notes. It speaks as if The Damned are dead. Though we fans know that they are getting ready to finally take over the world. It would have also been nice if this release had had some pictures form these time periods in the career of The Damned to show the images that went with this ever changing band, or even better from these sessions. No fan of The Damned should be without these recordings!

A worthy non-formal release of Damned Material 3 Nov. 2001
By "" - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Like most of us Damned fans know: there non-formal releases are sometimes better than the formal ones. This is probably a better introduction to their material than the two-disc Light At The End of The Tunnel. Good renditions of Feel The Pain(with a great final jolt not on the album version), I Just Can't Be Happy Today(with different lyrics and an extra verse), I'm So Bored, Thanks For The Night, Curtain Call, Is it a Dream, Stab Your Back, Fan Club, I Fall, Smash It Up(With Part 3) and a good cover of The Stones' We Love You. The album even has superior than LP versions of Therapy, New Rose("Are we really 65 on the charts?"), Sick of Being Sick, Strecher Case Baby, and Nasty. The rest, however, falter for bad production and quality. If you buy only one damned album this one would be a great one and an even better introduction into their style for the less than casual observer.

This is it the complete Peel Sessions the Damned recorded during 76-84. I actully prefer some of these demos to their studio counter part an excellent buy 22 songs of pure heaven (even in their demo form).

One of two Damned radio sessions CDs 9 Jun. 2011
By P - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This CD is one of two CDs The Damned have that feature alternate studio recordings of their songs.
The other CD is called Radio One Sessions. There is no overlap of material between the two.
The song selection and recording quality on Radio One Sessions is superior.
Radio One Sessions also includes an absolutely smokin' version of Wait For The Blackout.
Great Punk Rock 6 Aug. 2002
By Johnny Nonsense - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The Damned, one of Britain's most influential punk bands sound great on this record. The record captures the energy of their live performances, and still sounds good. These true punk rock pioneers keep putting out great music year after year, unlike some other punk cliches, notably the outfit that was once fronted by Johnny Nonsense. Punk lives!
