at last !!,
This review is from: Shelley, Pete - Xl1 (Audio CD)
ive waited over 20 years for this - the good CD version of pete's XL1 album - back in the early 80s i owned the cassette version which had the 4 long dub versions on the second side - over the years i played that cassette so many times it fell apart - just b4 it did i copied it to blank tape - and now that too has fallen apart!
At last a replacement for one of my absolute favourite albums by anybody - i love the buzzcocks (from another music right thro to flat pack philosophy) but this album is great - it has the 10 tracks of the "regular" album plus 2 of the long dub versions (the other 2 dub versions now appearing on the reissued solo album "homosapien")
Great songs and great arrangements - not a buzzcocks album but stands up in its own right with its own futuristic disco mix sounds
i must have at least a thousand albums by different people (varying from buzzcocks to reggae to beefheart)- but this is in my top ten of all time - so a big THANX to the people involved in this reissue!
