Simply put, this is the golden era of the Rollins Band. These performances have the classic line-up of Andrew Weiss, Sim Cain and Chris Haskett. The 2 disc set comprises the original Hard Volume set with additional demo tracks. Despite the thin production, this album showcases Rollins' lyrical expression at it's fullest potential. Insert Band Here is a disc of a live radio show recorded in Australia. This without any doubt proves how incredible this band were; tight, precise, disciplined; truly exceptional. The Blues influence is evident on the track Out There; a song which in my opinion is one of the strongest songs this era of the Rollins Band ever produced. An absolutely essential purchase.

This double CD features the albums 'Hard Volume' and 'Insert Band Here'. These discs contain gut-churning powerful tracks from Rollins and Band. Great, tight musicianship with clear vocals - you can hear every word, which is excellent. 'Hard Volume' was recorded in 1988 in a Los Angeles studio when the band were fresh from a tour and you can tell they still had their sh t totally together. In the liner notes Rollins concedes that the production sounds a little light but that was due to the studio that they used, at the time, being geared up more for Rap than Heavy Rock. This doesn't matter one bit. 'Insert Band Here' was their first visit to Sydney, Australia in 1990 and recorded live for a radio show (you can hear the small audience between brief pauses in the set list). Again, superb - a really good production. The discs contain several of the same songs - of course, slightly differing versions, being recorded 2 years apart - with a few different ones too. Not easy listening really, but nevertheless essential. Definately worth the owning. As Rollins says, "Enjoy some music from a time that is never coming back". I got it for a couple of quid so obviously I was well chuffed!
