5.0 out of 5 stars great album..., 25 May 2010
This review is from: Boys Outside (Audio CD)
I always loved the first 2 King Biscuit Time ep's and this is right up there - pure Steve Mason without the pressure of the expectations which destroyed the Betas. Or something like that.

Get it, you need it.

5.0 out of 5 stars essential, 8 Jun. 2007
This review is from: Long To Be Loose (Audio CD)
I've come back to this again and again over the years - if you fancy a guitar/bass/drums cd somewhere between scofield and zappa, easy on the ear and with an occasional headbanging moment - try this. Wayne's other cd's are of course excellent too but this feels like a concept album in comparison, everything is in the right place. The tunes really develop. If you get the feel for it I promise it will become one of your favourites too.

5.0 out of 5 stars New version bad, Directors Cut good - what a surprise?!, 27 April 2007
In short - buy this but forget the new version and go to the 'Turner Preview' ie. director's cut on disc 2, for the complete warts and all masterpiece. That's where the 5 stars belong, for the proper film alone - no other aspect of this 2 disc set is worth bothering with.

What really grates is that the new Seydor cut gets all the remastering treament (especially in the sound) while the real version is a standard transfer, none too wonderful with a horrible problem on the negative in the final scene.

The obvious thing would have been to use the director's cut, but give an option to splice in the Garrett wife scene & add the vocal version of Knockin on Heaven's Door to the soundtrack. But oh no, we have a wanabe genius in Seydor who thinks he can read the mind of Peckinpah 20 years on. The commentary (90 per cent of which is devoted to justifying the new version) and special features are rubbish. And Peckinpah is betrayed by minions yet again!

2.0 out of 5 stars still big problems with the SOUND on this release, 31 Mar. 2007
a 5 star film without doubt BUT like the previous R2 release, this 'special edition' is still plagued with dreadful sound - harsh, trebly, distorted and with absurd amounts of noise reduction. Why Why Why. Roeg fans will want the commentary but there's nothing else new here and for the film, stick with the R1 edition. Sorry to sound like a geek but it makes me so angry, this fantastic film deserves better.
