Customer Review

on 8 October 2001
We all know that the original "No Sleep..." is one of the finest live metal albums ever recorded, capturing Motorhead at the peak of their powers on the Ace of Spades tour back in '81....no argument there. So a remastered version of this timeless classic is most welcome indeed (yes I know a remastered version with three bonus tracks appeared a few years back, but let's ignore that for the moment). What makes this new expanded "No Sleep..." so worthy of your attention and hard earned pennies are the new previously unrealeased bonus tracks and an entire CD of outtakes from the recorded gigs from which the original was compiled (Leeds & Newcastle).
First the bonus tracks: I don't need to name them as the track listing is above. They are well up to the standard of the original album in terms of performance and recorded quality. Prime live Motorhead and totally unmissable. Worth the price of purchase alone.
The full CD of outtakes throws another light on the live Motorhead experience of the era. Mistakes are evident and the the recordings are not quite as good as those found on the original album - which is why they were outtakes in the first instance. However, that taken, they are possessed of the same outrageously frenetic delivery and perfectly capture the chaotic on-stage beast that was and still is Motorhead live. It's like having a more unruly and obnoxious alternate version of the original (bar the substition of 'Iron Horse' with 'Bite the Bullet / The Chase is Better....'). Well worth the investment.
All in all this new expanded and improved "No Sleep..." is essential for fans of the original album. Buy it immediately.
