The best Live concert I have ever heard and thats no lie!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live at Bogart's 1991 (Audio CD)
Initially, I was a tad unsure of purchasing this as I already have virtually all their recorded output and am still a major fan of Jellyfish (R.I.P) along with most of the individuals recorded output since their demise as a group.
I read as many reviews as I could source to try and get a flavour of this particular recording and was quite honestly unsure as most of the previously unheard tracks are on the Fan Club 4 disc boxset and It was my opinion that these tracks were the same ones but in cronological order as per the concert at Bogardes.
Boy, was I ever wrong and glad of it!
When It finally arrived through the letterbox I was a little bit blase and thought, well I`ll get around to it on one of my musical evenings whereby several bottles of wine are consumed with my significant other as we singalong and become the neighbours from hell.............usually a Friday night and the neighbours god bless em allow me this concession.
Well, that time came around, bottles were opened, cigarettes were smoked (possibly funny ones too) and the shiny new disc was placed into the hi fi and then..........................nirvana, total heaven!!!!!!!!
Whatever you do, if you like Jellyfish or are curious as to what they are about, make this cd your primary purchase this year, you will not be disappointed, believe me.
After knowing all the words and the guitar lines, keyboard breaks, amazing vocal harmonies etc etc, this concert is a revelation to any hardcore fans ears. Jason Falkners guitar lines as well as Rogen Manning Jr`s dexterity both on keyboards, guitar, tubular bells and whatever else he plays (glockenspiel anyone?) as well as Andy Sturmers lead vocals and the harmonic interplay of all four members voices is a revelation as well as the amazing quality of the live sound that wonderful night in 91 at Bogardes.
I haven`t even mentioned the songs which will blow your socks off and haveyou humming and singing them for weeks on end.
A masterpiece of sonic sculpture and a perfect example of a band who were firing on all cylinders knowing in their own minds that they were creatively at their peak when this was recorded.
If you dont buy it, you will sorely miss out on a truly amazing concert.
Dont say you weren`t warned!
God bless the `Fish!
