Format: Audio CD
These are odd days for a Mission fan. The band, having split in March with a series of career-spanning epic shows, have disappeared in a flurry of activity, that have seen eight Mission live shows released on CD, a solo album, five reissued albums, and an imminent solo tour and live DVD.

"Live at The BBC" covers just four short years over 46 songs and four hours , and sees The Mission turn from eager upstarts to arena rock gods. The first CD is a sequel/replacement for the long deleted and much sought after "Salad Daze" compilation : containing every radio session recorded by the band for BBC, it sees an embryonic band's first ever studio recordings in a blaze of bravado, of a wilful determination over-riding a bands cautious first steps.

The Mission came out guns blazing with the type of naked ambition that was fuelled by an overconfidence bordering on arrogance, but thankfully was neither unwarranted or ugly. This band, an unlikely combination of former members of The Sisters Of Mercy, an early and unknown Pulp, and Goff alumni Red Lorry/Yellow Lorry had within them a unique chemistry, a seemingly endless pool of material that raced unstoppably for their first five years with an album every year until Nirvana came and destroyed everything. These recordings are raw, enthusiastic, fuelled with no shortage of ego - but importantly - backed up with a talent that justified it. Within 18 months they were headlining the Reading Festival, and that headline show is also here.

The radio sessions see a band growing into themselves, moving from competently padding out their sets with cover versions of ancient rock classics to creating their own mythology (covers across the 3 CD's include The Beatles, Free, The Stooges, Patti Smith, Neil Young, and Aerosmith).

Well this exellent collection is well over due and about time it was released.
This album really does catch this band at their very best.
This really was The Mission doing what they do best and thats play Live.
The band that was probably the most unsung band of the late eighties are wonderfully captured here playing their hearts out to their mad crazyed eskimo fans with a few radio one Live sessions thrown inbetween.Its a great introduction to a very fine band indeed.
These guys kept it real and what nice pleasant gents they were too always wanting to give something back to their fans as Mr Simon Hinkler once said "Were just Four Yorkshire lads"
Its filled with many great gems from all the Hits to the slightly less known songs....but they are all great....With Mick browns drums Craig Adams thundering bass, Mr Husseys vocals and who could forget Simon Hinklers Roaring Zematis cranking through the Pa system...its a great bit of history..the reading rock show is explosive..maybe the bbc will realease the video of it next .Hint Hint

Well, as a big Mission fan of old I was excited to see this release and promptly coughed-up the hard earned. I'm distinctly underwhelmed though. Nothing wrong with the songs, high quality material was The Mission's trademark but this collection seems to have no soul for me - I get much more oomph from the studio albums. The sound quality is poor, all bass and treble with a sucked-out and compressed midrange. Live I don't think the Miss were *that* amazing either, truth be told. The songs are just slightly ragged versions of what's on the albums. That to me isn't the definition of a great live band. The packaging is superb, the artwork lovely and as I said before, there's no doubting the material...it's all just a bit cold to these ears and I doubt I'll play this much at all.

Three live cds from the Mission UK in a pretty little red box. Its Halloween in spring. Not a bad thing at all.
Extremely Biased Review 24 Nov 2008
By Lynn Benson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The MISSION UK have been my favourite band for 21 years.

This is a hard paper box with three separate cd's inside, packaged in individual sleeves.

The songs are live recording, not studio tracks, recorded through the BBC1 sessions.
