3.0 out of 5 stars Advice, 1 Feb 2012
This review is from: Diamond Hard Blue Apples of the Moon (Audio CD)
Not a review but sound advice...
Most of the Nice's back catalogue has been repackaged and released on many different formats.

Some of the tracks on this Diamond Hard Blue Apples of the Moon I simply did not know existed as live recordings.. So their origin is to my mind suspect. The dreaded Bootleg word springs to mind? An if that's the case then treat with caution and take my advice up go for the better Li ve at Filmore East or even the half live CD Nice. It has some really superior live tracks along with 4 studio that are good and the CD has been enhanced with some extra tracks thrown in! I reviewed that one too. So I'd read what I put and make your mind up.
In my collection I have many duplicates so rather than risking the 14GBp why not consider Live at the Fillmore East: December 1969 ?
This is generally acknowledged to be a brilliant double CD and comes in at less than 4GB (as at 01.02.12) and an excellent place to start.
It's two very good live concerts by the Nice.
Then I suggest you go to Amazon USA to see if any one there has written a write up on it.
Then please consider Live at the Filmore East.

If you like that one come back to this.

POST SCRIPT
As soon as I published my review were before there was simply no review those kind thoughtful peeps at Amazon tagged on the USA reviews!! Bless!
It seems my suspicions were well founded. The quality is mixed and bootleg standard albeit chosen by the great man Keith Emerson himself no less..

But I stand by my comments about there being better places to start your Nice CD collection.

So please dear reader be gentle with your 'was this review helpful' choice because if I had not written this review you would not be reading all those reviews.

Completists anyone?
