The first three tracks are from Saturday Live, tracks four to seven are from Richard Skinner, eight to eleven are BBC sessions and the rest are live at the Hammersmith Palais.

This is a great introduction to the early days of Lloyd Cole and The Commotions, an often underlooked and underrated band from the eighties. The session tracks are great, a brilliant look at an up and coming band and the true talent is there for all to hear.

The live tracks really show the true power of the band - the standout track is also the last track on the album, a brilliant rendition of Forest Fire (a song while still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up after all these years).

A great introduction, and if you enjoy this the try Lloyd Cole and The Commotions Vol. 2 and Lloyd Cole (solo) at the BBC. But definitely buy Rattlesnakes the debut album - 80's pop at it's best.

Always great to revisit Lloyd Cole and the Commotions. Great little collection.

Lloyd Cole has never got the recognition he deserves and this collection of live songs and BBC sessions shows off his songwriting ability
