Superb recording of "Astronomy",
This review is from: Some Enchanted Evening (Audio CD)
I have bought this album three times - on vinyl, on CD and the expanded "Legacy" - version which was released days after I upgraded to CD for the first time.
It is a great live album but not up to five stars which has to be saved for the very best.
Having said that, if there was ever a five star track it is this playing of "Astronomy". The guitar has to be some of the finest on any live rock/metal album.
Sadly "Don't Fear The Reaper" is not played at its best - listen to the one on "Extraterrestrial Live" for that. If that was reproduced on this disc it would certainly be a ***** review.
The original album closed with an excellent cover of "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place". The expanded edition treats us to a second version. Perhaps there is some subtle difference which makes this worth doing but I would rather have had another track.
If your are a B.O.C. fan you probably have this already. If not this would be a pretty good place to start - but get E.T.L. as well.
