4.0 out of 5 stars Good reissue but could have been better...... 13 April 2008
By TCH TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This album has had a lukewarm review from John Harris in MOJO and I was expecting the worst especially with respect to sound quality of the Mike Hedges sessions which were apparently sourced from an old cassette tape. Well I pleased to report that the sound isn't nearly as bad as I was expecting sounding basically like a good quality demo tape which in a way these sessions were since this is the way Mavers wanted the album recorded in a "rough and ready" fashion just like his idols from the '60s who'd knock out an album in less than a week (or 1 day for the Beatles debut!). That said I can't help feeling a little disappointed with this reissue if not the music within which is of course brilliant, one of the few truly "classic" albums from the 1990s despite a couple of slightly subpar tracks on side B. My main reservation is that the two CDs are hardly filled to the brim with music (50 and 60 mins respectively) and the audience to whom a "deluxe" reissue like this is aimed at would be more than happy to see as much put on as possible despite the inevitable repetition this would entail for a band with such a slim legacy as The La's. Specifically the (excellent) liner notes include a full sessionography, why couldn't the spare room on the two CDs have been filled with some of the unreleased versions detailed there including such illustrious producers as John Porter and John Leckie. A few limited examples are included as "bonus material" but nowhere near enough considering how much room is left free on each CD. If nothing else it would give listeners an opportunity to see if Mavers had a point with his dissatisfaction with the recording process or whether he was just be an obdurate so-and-so (I suspect the latter).

By J. Peet
Format:Audio CD
I have this album three times now. I bought the original in 1990, then the first reissue in 1999, and finally this one.

The music,for me, is a perfectly crystalised half-hour of what makes Liverpool so special to me. Lee Mavers' maverick streak that has held sway for the last eighteen years or so is our loss, but he is to be admired. The modern (presumably digital) recording process left him cold and that a record was put out, regardless of his feelings, added further misery.

The packaging is fine, the new tracks are good, and give us a little understanding on what Lee Mavers was trying to achieve. It's a shame that nobody had the guts to let him have his way.

The songs are beautiful, with the well known, 'There She Goes' being as shimmering now as it was when I first heard it in my dad's car in 1988. 'Timeless Melody' is so powerful and is a brilliant example of the magic that the La's were gifted with. It's refreshing to hear a singer keep his accen and avoid crass Americanisations. As a long-standing Beatles fan, I wrestle with that a lot, but here, it is natural and authentic. It might annoy Lee, but I adore this album, and have played it countless times, but it's simply the best album I have heard outside of the Beatles. The songs come across so that you can hear the bones of the song, and we can only imagine what they 'should' have sounded like.

I think that this reissue is great, but could have had a lot more material included - where is the version of 'Feelin' that was included in the boxset of 'Feelin' that was issued in 1991?

Hopefully, this will attract more people to the band and they can learn how Mavers was such a pivotal influence on Noel Gallagher (whether that was a good thing or not, I don't know).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album, nice alternative mixes 30 May 2014
By Mirandy
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is fantastic. Every song is great. It is nice to have the Mike Hedges versions, and the other mixes, because it shows a more psychadelic and darker/heavier sound that the band seem to have preferred from the lighter, choppier sounding album release.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am the Key. 28 Mar 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
"I am the key is a total" undiscovered gem.
The whole album is a classic and this version worth the extra money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 21 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD
I owned the original on cd and to be quite honest, I thought it was over rated. I based the album around 'There She Goes' and never got into the album. Until the past few years, that is. This is a well deserved classic- having got out of school in the mid 1980's, it must've been refreshing to hear this when it first came out- away from the mindless electronic music of that era. I like the accents as well, I'm as American as they come but always appreciated the music from the U.K. As a huge fan of Brit Pop, I'm really surprised I never let this one sink in before, but better late than never.
As far as the deluxe treatment, I think they did well with this.mi enjoyed the two different mixes of the album.
Pick this up, it's very well worth it.
