HASH(0x95316564) out of 5 stars Acoustic to the Max 22 Jun. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You have never heard Sting or Phil Collins powerful voices until you hear this album. This cd will make you think twice about "Roxanne" and "In the Air Tonight" the way they sing it here. Unmatched.

HASH(0x953169cc) out of 5 stars One of the best, but little known, recordings 12 Nov. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have spent years looking for this album on CD. I first heard it back in the early 80's and always felt it contained the best performances of both Sting and Phil Collins. Now that I have it on CD it has become again one of my favorite albums, almost 15 years later. I don't believe most people know that this album even exists, but for the people that do I can guarantee that it never strays far from their stereo.

HASH(0x95316948) out of 5 stars I Can't get it out of my mind 1 Feb. 2005
By Colette Steinorth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In the early 80's, I liked buying whatever struck me as interesting music wise. I found secret policemans ball, and secret policemans other ball. They were my all time favorite albums. 20 years later I got rid of all my albums. I remember thinking, should I keep these two? I didnt. I still can't get them out of my mind. Yes, I bought them in perfect condition.

HASH(0x95316d14) out of 5 stars Where's the original? 13 Jun. 2004
By Whiskey River - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is good. However, The original Secret Copper's Shindig, which appears to be missing in this catalogue is far more important artisticly. The sum of all the artists on this, the second show, warrants a cool 4 stars. But the the acoustic duo of the classical guitarist, Mr. Williams and the all too talented Mr. Townshend from the original "Ball" warrants 5 stars all on it's own. RE-ISSUE IT NOW!

HASH(0x95316c18) out of 5 stars Enthusiastic about that CD? - Here is even more 21 Dec. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I made a copy of the LP on tape in the early eighties and though it was a terrible one I always loved that great stuff. I was very glad now finding out that a CD was released, too. But there is even more: in-akustik in Germany has release a DVD (#6053) with additional tracks on it! But watch out: The regional codes are only 2 and 5.
