More of the same - delivery slightly different,
This review is from: Shock & Awe: Live at Oxford Playhouse, 11 November ,1992 (Audio CD)
Well, wooppee, another bill hicks cd! Dont get too worked up though, it's more of the same. This CD seems like a bit of a cash-in than an offering of anything new. For example, it's not an 'official' rykodisk one in a turquoisy case but just a normal CD. The CD itself does not have a 'sketch' on it either, this is not a 'real' bill hicks cd.
So there you go, i'm being picky maybe but if your new to bill hicks buy the best of or any of his proper albums first! If your a die hard fan and are considering buying this then i probably would. He delivers his jokes in a more 'english' way and pokes fun at the audience by talking in their style at himself 'Bill, this is oxford you know. we're not interested in pornography. we read poetry, art... Ok, i'l tell you what it's like and save you a field trip'. So, it's a great little CD where bill is more playful and loose but dont expect to hear much new.
If your a completist though, you still get a good few chuckles.
