Not a cash in!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Archive #828285 Live (Audio CD)
With the high-profile reissue of CV's somewhat and unfairly maligned mid-period (actually their most crucial phase), I feared this boxset from Intone (RHK's own label) was a cynical cash-in release and wouldn't add a great deal to the band's legacy -as such releases traditionally do.
I'm happy and still a little surprised to report the opposite: these are important and high quality recordings. The clarity is impressive, the quality of material and performance is thrilling -sometimes the Cabs could be quite listless and dull live -and genuinely funky, in fact, I found myself grooving hard to CD1, unable to sit still and having a lil' skank to Diskono; the band are in good form here.
The box is well produced, includes quality photographs and insightful notes. All in all, excellent.
