Keep Disc 1 - Bin Disc 2, 10 Feb 2006
The Police really defined the term 'power' trio. Along with Rush, it amazes me that just 3 people can make so much noise. If you're gonna buy this just relish the 1st disc from '79 - Punk, rock, dub/reggae all driven by Copeland's drumming and Sting relishing his role as a proper raw rock'n'roll frontman. Just check out the jam in 'This beds too big...' un-believable. It amazes me how lame Sting has become considering the amount of ass he kicks on this disc. Anyway agree with the previous reviewer. Second disc is a little too polished for my liking but the muscianship just about makes it listenable. Then again maybe I'm being too harsh judging by the 'live' dross I frequently witness. Finally the remastered production is special. On an Ipod with decent headphones disc1 sounds like you are front row. Trust me..love rock..love the Police ..Live. Truly special.
