4.0 out of 5 stars careful - only 1 disc 18 Nov 2008
By George
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At the time of writing, Amazon has two identically titled products going for the same price, the difference being that this one here only has one cd, and the other has two! A whole bonus disc- 'Live in Belfast'. I just ordered mine, so this is not a review of the music or service, just a warning that currently for the same price, you can get a bonus disc by buying the other, identically titled, release.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD Really Rings My Belle 22 Nov 2008
By Mr. B. A. D. Plowman VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
For many hardcore fans, Belle and Sebastian's "BBC Sessions" will doubtless be the most eagerly anticipated release of 2008. This collection has been in the pipeline for a number of months now, but the final release has been delayed for various reasons.

Still...the wait is over, and "The BBC Sessions" is with us. With a live CD as an added bonus! Hurrah!

So, to the music :- We have here some marvellous renditions of the band's early material. On classics such as "The State I Am In" and "Judy" certain instruments need a tune up...guitar strings buzz occasionally and the odd vocal falls flat. Of course, these occurences serve to heighten the immense charm of these exquisite songs. To listen to the early sessions is akin to sitting in a rehearsal room with the band as they nervously execute these fragile masterpieces. It's a wonderfully intimate experience.

As the sessions progress, the band tighten up. "Seymour Stein" is great, and this is followed by a gorgeous, acoustic rendition of "Lazy Line Painter Jane". I actually prefer this version of "Lazy Jane" to the bombastic EP release. Stuart provides the entire vocal (with Stevie providing endearingly wobbly harmonies). The beat skips along gently, and the sounds are embellished by a twinkling xylophone and that old B+S staple: a muted trumpet. It sounds pure and untainted. It's great!

Another definite highlight is "Wrong Love" (known as "The Wrong Girl" in its studio guise). This is a "naked", beatless version and features a strong vocal from Stevie and a delightful cello motif. Once again, I believe this version is actually superior to the one on the "Fold Your Hands" album.
