This double album set of the Texan trio collates live performances from over the years . Live songs incorporate everything from 'Visions' on the first album , to 'Black Like Sunday' on their latest studio effort .
They themselves admit that these recordings are 'warts and all' , with no studio overdubs , and the rawness of the songs is all the better for it . There are extended jam sessions on some songs , with Doug Pinnick going into 'Preacher Mode' on others - if you've seen King's X live , you'll know what I mean !
Especially appreciated is a six song acoustic only set at the start of the second CD , which allows all three vocal talents to come more to the fore .
There are some patchy moments , especially if , like me , you prefer their earlier albums , but this is an album that can be enjoyed repeatedly .
