5.0 out of 5 stars A must have album., 29 Nov 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Boots And Panties! (Audio CD)
In many ways the quintessential British New Wave album,New Boots And Panties gets yet another re release.So the question is do you need this as well as the brilliant 2 cd reissue of a couple of years ago?If you have never owned this album on cd this is probably the best time to invest,but if you own a previous version, i'm not fully convinced.

The Sight And Sound dvd is fantastic,[But clocking in at under 30 minutes],and is a perfect representation of Ian Dury and the Blockheads at their peak[and they were a tight,disciplined live unit].However with only seven songs i feel a little short changed[surely some other footage could have been found to make this better value],and as much as i love this album and band,it is hard to recommend buying this if you own the album on cd already.

A five star review is given for the amazing music on both discs,which is timeless,but approach this reissue with some caution,as you may already own a perfectly adequate version.

The concert is only 30 minutes long because it was part of an hour long show with Dr Feelgood playing the second half hour, rather hard on them as Ian Dury was a much hotter act at the time. When this was first broadcast I cocked up the sound recording of the show but even with what I had it was the best I had ever heard them, about time they actually released it!
