5.0 out of 5 stars A snap shot of SLF doing what they did best !, 23 Jun 2008
This review is from: Hanx (Audio CD)
This album is worth buying for the live version of Johnny Was" alone ! A song recorded by Bob Marley ("Rastaman Vibrations")and regardless of what Jake says it was written by Rita Marley not Robert Marley (sic) ! If I had a pound for everytime I've fell asleep listening to this album, I would be living next door to Bill Gates ! I am on my second copy of the cd and i wore out a few copies since it was released !

This is a snapshot of how good the SLF live shows were in their heyday !
You sit me down behind a drum kit and I will go into automatic mode and start to bang out " Johnny Was" I can never and never will decide what my fav song of all time is. It's either the Live "Johnny Was" from Hanx!or "Whiteman In Hammersmith Palis" by The CLASH."

The album was designed to introduce the band to America before they toured there. It was also released in the Uk so we didnt have to buy it on import. ( hanx 4 that !)

I am going to make a bold statement now that the purists will strongly dissagree with. I think the tracks from the First album ( Inflammable Material") are better on Hanx than on the studio recording. The studio version does have a DIY/tinny feel to them. Hanx, I believe makes them even more powerful.

if you havn't got any SLF albums then this would be a good starting point !
