More limp than Soft...
on 14 February 2011
Just a word of caution:
1. This is NOT a 2CD set as the info above would have you believe - it's a single CD with a download capacity - I think this is not the same thing and the Amazon description is misleading and should be edited accordingly.
Another word of caution:
2. Whoever mastered this managed to mess up the track selection, which is unforgivable - the version of "Old Pervert Man" included here is NOT the original album track but the vastly inferior single B-side version. Somebody had to work hard to get this careless.
Oops, more caution:
3. packaging is poor - it's a "recreation" gatefold LP type sleeve (The original was a single sleeve) with a contemporary b/w live photo that looks like it's from the Great Northern or Portland Arms in Cambridge around the time of the original release. But there's no liner notes at all or in fact anything of interest or worth a damn. It's a fairly half hearted effort and I must confess to being disappointed.
The music, "Pervert" apart is fine as ever but I was expecting a comprehensive 2CD version of this minor classic and instead received a single disc with an erroneous track selection. Really not good enough.
