NOW DON'T GET ME WRONG...THE CD RE-ISSUE IS STILL GOOD, BUT NOT AS GOOD AS IT USED TO BE. WHERE ARE THE TRACKS BY SWEET PAIN, SUGARLOAF,AMON DUUL II,NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND AND THE BRILLIANT TRACK 'SPILL THE WINE' BY ERIC BURDEN & WAR. EVEN SOME ARTISTS WHO DID APPEAR THE FIRST TIME ARE DOING DIFFERENT TRACKS.
HERE'S THE ORIGINAL TRACK LISTING FOR YOU TO COMPARE WITH WHAT'S ON THE NEW CD RE-ISSUE:
ERIC BURDEN & WAR:SPILL THE WINE.*
HELP YOURSELF:STREET SONGS.
NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND:CHICKEN REEL.*
COLIN SCOT:TAKE ME AWAY.
IF:HERE COMES MR TIME.
MAN:DAUGHTER OF THE FIREPLACE.
GYPSY:LET ME TAKE YOU HOME.
ALLAN TAYLOR:SONG FOR KATHY.*
ERNIE GRAHAM:DON'T WANT ME ROUND YOU.*
CANNED HEAT & JOHN LEE HOOKER:BOOGIE CHILDREN No2 (EXCERPT).*
HAWKWIND:BE YOURSELF (EXCERPT).
AMON DUUL II:RACE FROM HERE TO YOUR EARS.*
MORNING:ROLL 'EM DOWN.*
CANNED HEAT:THAT'S ALRIGHT MAMA.*
BRINSLEY SCHWARZ:FUNK ANGEL.*
REG KING:GONE AWAY.*
NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND:YUKON RAILROAD.*
SWEET PAIN:JOY (EXCERPT).*
*THESE TRACKS REALLY SHOULD HAVE BEEN INCLUDED BECAUSE WITHOUT 'EM THIS RE-ISSUE IS A BIT OF A DISAPIONTMENT!
It is nothing like the original record. half the tracks are missing.
Result...one big unhappy husband!...not nice!...be warned!!
This collection of Liberty artists (whilst strictly second division in the great scheme of things) does what a sampler compilation should do - introduce you to a number of artists that you would like to explore further.
The bad news - too much Groundhogs, Man and Hawkwind (4,3,3 tracks respectively.) Also it's presented in a clunky plasic case (see the 'Time Machine' & 'Legends of a Mind' box sets as to how it should be done).
The good stuff? Plenty!
The Idle Race (Jeff Lynne pre Move)
Help Yourself - Street Songs (Very PC - not!) & Eddie Warring (guitar wig out time)
High Tide (dualling violin and guitar)
If (awesome vocals)
Gypsy (pre dates Teenage Fanclubs 'Everything Flows')
Brinsley Schwarz & Bonzo DDDB (compilations ordered from Amazon)
and my very favourite - Clive John's 'Out of My Tree'
Well worth buying....it's now on to the Dawn compilation
