5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Live Cult! 16 April 2007
By 9ftneil VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Anyone familiar with BOC's mighty legacy of hard riffing psyched-out prog flavoured heavy rock will love this classic set taken from a 1983 radio broadcast. It sounds mercifully free of overdubs and makes a refreshing warts and all document of this legendary band. Although recorded just a few months before the release of their 'Revolution By Night' album curiously it doesn't feature a single track from it, not even the fantastic 'Take me Away'. However, this set on offer here is a trawl through the Cult's old 70's classics which are played with a real verve and energy and feature some sterling improv lead guitar from axe-man extraordinaire Donald 'Buck Dharma' Roeser. There are four songs taken from the Cult's eponymous first album and these old chesnuts 'Stairway to the Stars', 'Workshop of the Telescopes', Before The Kiss a Redcap' and the mighty 'Cities on Flame' sound fresh and exciting as the Cult pile on riff after riff. The early material dominates with choice tracks from 'Tyranny & Mutation' and the faithful old cover standards of 'Born To Be Wild' and 'Roadhouse Blues'. Only the two hit singles from 'Fire of Unknown Origin' (Burnin for You & Joan Crawford) give a nod to their more recent albums but there is the wonderful surprise of 'Born to Rock' a song from Buck Dharma's 1982 solo album 'Flat Out' which is simply excellent. The inevitable 'Reaper' closes with more sterling fretwork from Buck.

All in all a fantastic release with great sound and well worth the money for any Cult fan or anyone who enjoys balls-out classic heavy rock. I would rank this alongside BOC's 'Some Enchanted Evening' live set, yes it really is that good! This disc was also available as a twofer with a 1981 NYC concert and is well worth checking out if you can get it cheap -although the '81 concert it a little underwhelming.
