5.0 out of 5 stars "Official" bootleg.. Yes , but here is the very good news.....
So, I took the cellophane off with a bit of trepidation. Was this going to be one of those shoddy sound quality semi-"official bootlegs ? You know the ones where tape quality is dreadful and there is considerable tape hiss.
No , the very good news is that it isn't. The even better news is that it's a superb performance . It's a Boston radio performance from 1982...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the full performance!
This is a marvellous performance by Warren - a five star performance.
However, this CD presents only part of the show - and hence a three star rating.

01 Intro 02 Johnny Strikes Up The Band 03 Overdraft 04 Certain Girl
05 Let Nothing Come Between You 06 Band Intros > Banter 07 Jeannie Needs A...

No , the very good news is that it isn't. The even better news is that it's a superb performance . It's a Boston radio performance from 1982 to promote " The Envoy" album. The band ( John Wood, Randy Brown, Larry Larson , and Joe Daniels) are tighter than a ducks bum and obviously totally engaged with the material. Warren is quite startlingly wonderful and seems to be relatively free of excessive " concert medicine " ( or drugs and alcohol as some people call it ) . He sings some of the songs with a freshness and enthusiasm that would have people thinking he just wrote them . My particular favourites are " Roland the headless Thompson Gunner " , " Lawyers Guns and Money" and a fine version of Springsteen's " Cadillac Ranch" Well worth your ( and my) money

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb live show, 24 July 2013
This review is from: Headless In Boston (Audio CD)
This is taken from a 1982 radio broadcast and the quality is superb. It;s fantastic to have a live document of this period of Warren's career and fans are certain to cherish this release. Great track selection, great sound and a great artist at his finest.

I have been looking for some of his old concerts from the 70's and 80's but they are just not so easy to find. Finally, here seems to be something that at least is semi legal. The sound completely acceptable, while the performance is top class! This man is really missed! He was a true original!

Just listened to this CD and I wish I had attended the concert. The sound is quite good and it appears that the audience enjoyed it as well. A good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Headless in Boston - Warren Z, 29 Mar 2014

This review is from: Headless In Boston (Audio CD)
Warren Zevon is a hero to me - what a writer of vivid songs, wildly varied but all believable, wonderful tunes, great backing musicians - and Warren's piano is SO lovely that I hold my breath in Frank and Jesse James when he plays the piano bridge between verses, so that I don't miss one note. Headless in Boston is a super live concert .. he gave 100% of himself it seems, God bless him.

Warren does not always have the strongest voice but he is in good form here - the crowd in Werewolves of London just got to make you smile

Having listened to this several times, I have no doubt WZ was headless for these performances !!!
All my old favourites are here, and performed fantastically. These concerts must have been great events with the "Buzz" lasting for days.
Totally recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars this is not an "official" bootleg but theft, period, 24 July 2013
This review is from: Headless In Boston (Audio CD)
A legitimate authorized release is being discussed with the Zevon estate but this edition is criminal and in no way "official."
