excellent music,shoddy packaging,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Setlist: The Very Best Of Molly Hatchet LIVE (Audio CD)
I previously stated ,after buying a Blue Oyster Cult set list release,that i would never buy another,well ignoring my own advice,i bought this,once again i'm left slightly disappointed.
The music is excellent,'live' Hatchet is always a treat,tracks 1-7 are from the superb 1985 release 'Double Trouble Live',while tracks 8-12 claim to be previously unreleased,recorded 'live' at the Palladium L.A on 23/02/1982,great they are to.
However they sound identical to those versions found on the 'Extended Versions' disc released 2002, which were sourced from the King Biscuit greatest hits live album released earlier,that recording states the tracks are from the Palladium L A on the 12/02/1982(although some believe the extended version date back to 1981),all rather confusing.
For the record this release contains 'Bloody Reunion' which was only previously on the ,hard to find,King Biscuit release,so i've gained a track i didnt previously have,maybe the next set of 'unreleased tracks' will include 'Boogie No More' from that release ,so we can have the full set!!!!.
The liner notes are poor, several of the tracks from 'Double Trouble' are listed as recorded live in 1982,when they hadnt been written/recorded until '83 & '84,Producer Pat Armstrong is noted as Pate Armstrong,laughable shoddy presentation.
Sound quality,supposedly remastered,it sounds slightly better,less rough and ready round the edges,than the 'Extended Versions 'disc.
All in all its a poorly presented release,containing some fabulous music,from an under rated band,at the low price,its your choice.
