20 minutes too long
on 2 July 2010
This would have been so much more enjoyable if around twenty minutes has been cut, but I'm not talking about the music. On the Cd cover are the words: "The Full 1993 Glasgow Barrowland Show". And it means what it says. In other words it includes all the audience applause, cheering, whistling, stamping, and joining in on the songs which is often really distracting. I'm not against this completely; it's a live concert after all, but judicious editing can still convey the flavour without it getting in the way of the music which is what most people who buy this actually want to hear.
As for the music, it's fine though I'm not as enamoured of the acoustic section as some people -I came for loud electric guitar. Unexpected bonuses are a couple of Neil Young covers, one from the acoustic and one from the electric sections, which I'm always up for.
This is a good live album but it's spoiled for me by an excess of audience contributions.
