This review is from: UB40 Live (Audio CD)
Simply outstanding.

I'd always dismissed the group as MOR cover artists until spying 'Present Arms' in a friend's CD collection. A vague but pleasant memory of One in Ten sparked my curiosity and I gave it a listen. I was instantly hooked - these guys were REALLY good once. Having now heard just about everything they did before running out of steam and into cover version hell, I had to hear how they performed live. The answer is 'magnificently' and this is my favourite of their albums.

The set catches them live in 1982 with material from the no-nonsense first three albums. It's bursting with excellent, hook-laden tunes, recorded superbly. The band is on top form, playing chilled yet thrilling rhythms as if their lives depended on it.

Who'd have guessed that by the time this was released, UB40 were planning to reinvent themselves as a tame reggae Stars in their Eyes outfit. Catch them here in their prime, when Sardonicus still had something to smile about.

if you are just starting to discover the goodness of ub40 buy this album and you will find an excellent live reggae album,stick to ub40s older stuff as this is way better than what at the time was the newer stuff.
