Although this is interesting and tells the story of the counting crows, it is pretty poorly produced.
As it is not an official Counting Crows CD it has no music which would make it one hundred times better, Just snippets of tracks that it is talking about.
I love the Counting Crows, and go as far to say one of my favorite all time bands, this was a disappointment.
My advice is not to buy.
Sorry to who ever produced this, but next time get the bands co-operation!

This a real snippit from the underground punk movement in Belfast during the Seventies. I feel that the "Punk" movement was the changing of tides in the music industry and feel that its due for another one!
This beautifully presented black comedy takes a really good look back at this time and portrays it well. The main Character is played extremely well and anyone who loves music and shopped in independent music shops in Belfast in the past thirty years will know who Terry is.
Great sound track, and a great strap line.
"New York has the hair style, London has the jeans but Belfast has the reason"... something along those lines.
This guy has had a hard life.
When "Cold fact" was made he was in a great musical place, then he recorded a second album soon after which of what i've heard is also great.
But unfortunately they both flopped.... or so he thought!!!! they flopped in the states but became a key part of the soul revolution in South Africa..
I dont know much about South African politics, but this boy was bigger than elvis. It was only in 1997 when he found out and the South African nation found out he was still alive.
Such an heart wrenching and unbelievable story, this is truly a unique and beautiful part of music history.
