5.0 out of 5 stars A gret example of what they were 20 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've got them all, and this is still one of my favorite Triffids' albums. Sure, it sounds live. But, well, it was live - and I think it gives a pretty good portrait of how good they really were.
Just a brief taste of what they were like live - a bit more fleshed out than their truly brief "Peel Sessions" recording.
3.0 out of 5 stars Best for the covers 4 Mar 1999
By John Hempton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I am a Triffids fan, no addict, but live they became a bit thin - even pinched. It sort of sounds like a an old LP where the band could not restrain themselves and whipped 52 minutes onto the disc with the consequent lack of sound quality.
And the CD does not save it. (If you need an example compare the LP and CD versions of Televisions' Marquee Moon. The latter is surreal. The former is pinched.)
Anyway the album's saving grace is the covers. "Sure the girl I love" is great. And Dylan could never have done his own "Billy" anything like as well.
