Top critical review
on 18 November 2016
I bought this because from the other reviews, I guessed the sound wouldn't be any worse than Sundazed's 2010 Moby Grape release entitled Live, which is rough, not a great recording but listenable. If some are giving it a 5 star review, the sound can't be that awful, despite what the 1 star reviewers said.
I was wrong - this is much worse - the sound quality is awful, everything muffled and distorted, the drums often painfully louder than the rest of the instruments, which domimnates/spoils everything. Surely this was recorded from the bogs, if from in the building at all - more likely from 3 streets away. This CD is going straight down the charity shop. I listen to some fairly rough live recordings because I love the music, so I'm no hi-fi purist with unrealistic expectations, but you just can't listen to this one. There's a basic, pretty low minimum, and this falls way below that, Unlistenable.
