5.0 out of 5 stars One of pop's great lost classics. 14 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
...Though that description could be applied to most of the Go-Betweens albums, Tallulah is a particularly good example. One of a triple whammy of great eighties records (along with 'Liberty Belle...' and 'Spring Hill Fair' which I also recommend wholeheartedly) it's probably the most out-and-out pop album the band or any of its members have made thus far. Gorgeous melodies, appealing twin vocals and some damn great songs are found within; 'Bye Bye Pride' and 'Right Here' on Grant Mclennan's side, the heartbreaking 'The Clarke Sisters' from Robert Forster, and in 'Spirit of a Vampyre' we truly have the greatest cry of "hey!" in recorded history courtesy of Forster's arch croon. When this album was released it sold about twelve copies... more than a decade later, you can help redress the balance: it's the only decent thing to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Classic Go-Betweens album - A Masterpiece 11 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
This for me is the great Go-Betweens album. On this recording the two writers Forster and McLennan start to write in overlapping styles almost making their contributions harder to tell apart. It's lyrical focused - The Clarke Sisters and Right Here are brilliant song poetry. Musically driving - Bye Bye Pride and Spirit Of a Vampyre are the band playing at their peak form and it also contains the wistful longing of You Tell Me and Hope Then Strife.
The production takes a major leap forward on this album, making it one of the easiest records for new-comers to the band to enjoy, although 16 Lovers Lane and Friends Of Rachel Worth both come close. I'm constantly amazed by the power and beauty this record displays which remains undiminished since the day I originally brought it.
Forster's epic The House That Jack Kerouac Built perhaps sums up what makes the Go-Betweens so great "you're on the road with a bad crowd" is a fantatastic farewell from a heavily theatrical Forster.
Although I gather the recording of this album was somewhat painful for the band at the time. It is evidence enough of its greatness that a large number of its songs are regularly in their set lists today.
The packaging of these reissues are particularly beautiful and I gather a great deal of work has gone into the fabulous sound restoration. I'm particularly pleased to see all the great songs for each period on a bonus disc rather than scatterede over various compilations. I also think its a wondeful idea to leave a classic album like Tallulah on one disc alone and the other material on the bonus disc. There's also all the videos included in the set which makes for a totally perfectly executed package.
This is a totaaly classic album. Packaged with love an care to an exceptional standard. Re-issue of the year in my book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Commercial Stab 8 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is indeed a flawed masterpiece and once again is a so nearly classic. Perhaps their least consistent album, the problem seems to stem from the fact that both songwriters went off into very different styles and commercial compromises were made in an attempt to hit the big league. However there are lots of strong songs here, namely the singles 'Right Here' and the sweeping (anthemic!) 'Bye Bye Pride'. There is less focus on the warm guitar sound of the usual Go-Between LP's and instead newcomer Amanda Brown enriches (but occasionally clutters) the songs with violin and oboe. Quiet highlights of the album include 'The Clarke Sisters', a dark sensual tale set in a feminist bookstore , and the brooding death's door melodrama of 'Spirit of the Vampyre'. Tracks like these are fantastic and make the album a must for fans. However the flawed single 'Cut it out' (and a couple of others) jar the overall feel. Still a pretty good album and it did crack the UK top 100!! (selling at least 12 dozen copies).
