3.0 out of 5 stars TRANSCENDENT.. AT TIMES, 6 July 2014
This review is from: Fisherman's Box: The Complete Fisherman's Blues Sessions 1986-88 [6 Disc Box Set] (Audio CD)
If you were touched by the original album back when it was first released (I had it on cassette), you should probably stop dithering and buy this now.

I was always unsure why the LP didn't get more notice than the band's previous work. Perhaps it was because it was more traditional in a musical sense, and was deemed to not have the appeal to a young record-buying public that Velvet Underground ripoffs did at the time.

But six discs is simply too much. Some of these jams are tentative, and go on for too long. The box could've been a more manageable four discs of high quality stuff. I would've left off the still-working-this-out demos although sometimes even these tracks are nice to have on as background music.

As for the good stuff, it's an embarrassment of riches. The original LP could easily have been a double at the time with no let down in quality.
