I saw pete murphy recently and unfortunatly he was not well supported.He is quite a character. I had a couple of bauhaus lp's from my youth and only 1 solo lp.This album comprises many of his artistic works from earlier days (well we are in 2009)and for the newby they are more refined (as murphy puts it)when compared to the heavier bauhaus.Think of the nice accoustic tracks from burning from the inside and the skies gone out( Which are included on this cd)and you will sort of see where pete murphy is going.The live lp captures the true nature of many performers and if you have ever seen murphy live you will see that this cd reflects murphy quite well. If you are a big fan(which i am not) go for it.

If you have ever listened to Peter's solo work, or Bauhaus you will already know that he has one of the most recognisable voices today. This album takes an accoustic look at his back catalog from a live performance recorded sometime in 2001. The quality of the recording is excellent, and the quality of the performance is stunning.
All of Peter's solo classics are there, and there is more than a hint of the direction that his next solo LP (Dust) would take.
If you have ever owned any of Peter's music and enjoyed it, then you will enjoy this recording. A definite 5 stars in my opinion.

Peter's voice is just simply superb as usual. Nevertheless I personally still miss the guitars. A must for fans.

I certainly like the musical content, but having heard the whole in its entirety I won't be buying the CD. Why? Because the crowd squeals and yells all the way through -- not just at the beginning and end of every song, but throughout also and at such volume as to ruin the music. Yes, I know it's live -- I saw Bauhaus in 1982 (at the Hull Tower Ballroom of all places, and it was electric) but we didn't squeak all the way through the set like this crowd do.

So, music company execs -- if you're going to be recording a live set for release, let the crowd know it in advance on threat of ejection if they don't keep quiet, because the crowd noise has cost you my sale, and plenty of comments in the Amazon reviews focus negatively on this element.
