2.0 out of 5 stars A BitOf Fun, 30 Jun. 2009
So this is the Spanish language version of "Crazy From The Heat" it is identical in every way except that it is sung entirely in Spanish. The first run through is quite amusing to listen to the different vocals. And after that.... well you go back to listening to the normal English version. The songs we all know and love and they are still pretty special Mr Vai on top form but they are not enhanced by the Spanish language versions and as the English version is half the price of this I would say buy that instead

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a buy?, 5 Feb. 2009
Ok so this is not as good as Burn, in my opinion. It is however, Deep Purple and therefore worth a listen anyway, It is also David Coverdale so that is a reason to listen also. Personally I am happy that this has been remastered as the original CD mastering was awful, my old LP sounded better. I am pleased that the Quad mixes are here as I have never heard these and I would have liked them to be in DVD-A or SACD as there is a difference in sound (although not as much as you would think) but would not dock any points because of this. Basically buy this for "Soldier of Fortune" one of the greatest Hard Rock songs ever recorded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite a classic but Setzer none the less, 6 Jun. 2007
The release of Brian's forst two solo offerings from 1986 and 1988 is a welcome return. Up until recently these CD's were only available as relatively expensive Japanese Imports so the low price on these is all the more welcome. Both Albums havew there merits but neither reallyh hold a candle to the Cats at their best or Brians more recent solo offerings.

The Knife Feels Like Justice was Brian's first solo release coming 3 years after the Stray Cat's Rant & Rave with.. LP and is more a country album than a rockabilly one, with a nod to more straight forward rock (as opposed to -abilly) in songs like Radiation Ranch and Three Guys. In my opinion the better songs on this album are the ballads Boulevard Of Broken Dreams, Maria & Breath of Life that are catchy country style ballads.

Live Nude Guitars from 1988 is a much better album that is back on more familiar terms with a more Rock (and -abilly) feel to it. Most of the songs on here are upbeat and tracks like Rebellene and Rockability would not really be out of place in Brian's current live sets. I think this album is better than Knife as it, in my opinion, rocks harder. My only complaint and this is one that I have had about all of the CD releases of Live Nude Guitars is that the utterly brilliant Cross Of Love that was the B side to When the Sky Comes Tumbleing Down and is the definitive version of this song is never included.

In summary: If you are a Setzer Fanatic you will already have the Japanese versions. If you are a fan get it as it is quite interesting and cheap. If you only really like the Rockabilly stuff then buy Rockabilly Riot Vol. 1 - A Tribute To Sun Records from 2005 and put your cat clothes on.
