Top Customer Reviews
This reissue gives both covers to seperate issues of Wilder and along with some lovely remastering includes the rare Buff Manilla mini-lp- which had tracks that would turn up on the Tiny Children & You Disappear from View singles (and in a slightly different form on 1990's Everybody Wants to Shag the Teardrop Explodes collection).
Every Wilder track does it for me, some more than most being Bent Out of Shape, The Culture Bunker ("waitin for The Crucial Three"), Like Leila Khaled Said & The Great Dominions. Top production by Clive Langer and Copey was on great form as a songwriter- despite the chemical incendaries et al apparent if you read his Head On memoir. And it's safe to say that Passionate Friend is one of the greatest pop songs ever- despite its odd structure; must admit I was shocked Cope wasn't nominated for this Great Britons thing- as great a British/English songwriter as Morrissey/Marr, Andy Partridge, Ray Davies, Madness etc...
The bonus tracks are nice- even if the Pete Wylie influenced Christ Vs Warhol referred to in the liner notes is absent. I think Rachel Built a Steamboat is a little dull, though this is probably just a David Balfe grievance in disguise (have you read Head On?Pass me the bucket of sewage...Though this is probably just a Blur thing in disguise.Read more ›
This particluar version sports stunning sound and a slew of b-sides. (The chamber music version of Suffocate and Christ vs. Warhol are both missing, though)
Nonetheless, this is the most definitive version of this masterpiece currently available. Get it!
I have purchased Kilimanjaro new six times since it was first released (2 X Vinyl, 1 X cassette, and 3 X CD) and Wilder four (1 X Vinyl, 1 X Cassette, 2 X CD). That is a lot of cash for a certain record company. With each "expanded" repackaging there have been glaring omissions and much pointless duplication.
The music is wondrous and hits me every time. I truly loved this band and continue to love these albums. Fans will already have the Peel Sessions Plus tracks which were released on the Peel Sessions Plus CD collection. Package "Wilder" properly and give us "Log Cabin", "Suffocate" (strings), "Buchanan" and "Christ Versus Warhol". Or put them out together on a wee 4-track CDEP and finish the job!
Although there's nothing quite as immediate as KILIMANJARO's REWARD or TREASON to get the pulses racing, WILDER - complete with 9 bonus tracks and nearly double the length of the original vinyl LP - is certainly worth getting your teeth into. And to give Jules his due, he did go on to write the sublimely gaga SUNSPOTS and TRAMPOLINE.
