i bought this to replace my vhs , nothing wrong with the tape. the tape was 83 minutes with 20 songs it had a different title 'bitter twisted and live'' but its the same gig . this has 12 and a half songs on it and its 50 minutes. the songs 'debbie/whippin boy/take no revenge/sweet mary ann/my saint jude/man on the loose/sex party and half of long time comin'' have vanished. this was produced in association with central tv ( remember them ?) ive got a feeling this has been turned into digital format for a tv perfomance that had to last 60 minutes including adverts - 'long time comin ' is faded out at the end !!! looks like somebody took the opportunity to press this as it had work done on it already. having said all that, its the only dvd of the original quireboys , its a great gig and the quality is good. you still get the hits although a QB gig without ''sex party'' is a bit weird ! i wish they would put out the 'bit of what you fancy'' tape with the rest of this , im sure it would fit on one disc.
A treat to have a new DVD of the Quireboys, one of the best proper rock n roll bands the UK have produced. Not as good as the Mean Fiddler gig DVD of 2005 but very enjoyable just the same. Loses a star because the sound volume is rather low so you need to crank it up a bit and only 50 minutes running time. Credits rolling over track twelve spoil that track and Long time comin the last track is cut short suddenly after only a few seconds. The boys are touring at present so do go and see them if you can, if not buy this.
Great DVD maybe a little short but the music is excellent , alot of songs off their underrated bitter sweet and twisted album, shows great rock and roll, good party tunes and great musicianship. Worthwhile purchase .
