4.0 out of 5 stars Quality live performance., 13 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Entertaining Friends: Live (Audio CD)
Definitely a quality performance from the Buzzcocks, one of the great 1st generation Punk bands of the 70's onwards and still playing live to this day, very good quality sound too which is a bonus, because as rightly pointed out, a lot of bands years ago had poor quality recordings of live performances doing the rounds, so this is well worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars A live punk album that isn't of unlistenable sound quality!?, 14 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Entertaining Friends: Live (Audio CD)
One must always be wary of CDs containing live material from punk bands, for the sound quality is usually quite dreadful. However, that does not stop 'Entertaining Friends' from being one of the most accomplished punk albums in existence.
What this disc contains is most of the Buzzcocks' better songs performed live at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1979. While the Buzzcocks may lack the raw attitude of the Angelic Upstarts, the politics of Crass and the situationism of the Sex Pistols, what they do is honest punk songs dealing with themes we can all relate to and they do it well.
All of life's trivialities are covered here; regret (Ever Fallen in Love), hopelessness (I Don't Know What to do With My Life) and even chronic masturbation (Orgasm Addict). This album manages to avoid the pretentiousness of some of the punk bands who tried to force politics into their music but fortunately without delving into the power-pop realms of bands like The Undertones.
Overall, this is a great collection of the band's worthwhile songs and, despite being live, is not to be missed.
