5.0 out of 5 stars If you think you missed it no you didn't..., 31 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Return to Childhood (Audio CD)
How many times have you bought a 'Live' recording only to find that it's another quick money spinner for a band too worn out or so far down their creative paths that it's really just been a waste of your hard earned money? THIS COULD NOT BE DIFFERENT! I was among the army of freaks all those years ago when we first heard the gossamer shimmer of piano that led us into Lavender, thrilled to Steve Rotherays soaring guitar on Kayleigh and gazed, dumbstruck, at a band who had emerged fully fledged onto the World Stage and all these years later (regrettably without the original band) the strength, power and passion are still there. Fish's voice has, if anything, matured and life has knocked the few rough edges off what was already a polished delivery leaving us with a multi faceted diamond of an album. The first CD is all his later work (mysterious, angry and exultant)and demonstrates the true verstility of the 'new' band and Fish himself, the second is 'Childhood' in all its' majesty. One of the nice things about this magnificent double album is that it is presented in exactly the same way as the tour was. Fish had teased for years with just the hint of an intro when playing live...was that Heart of Lothian? Could this be Kayleigh? Surely that's Pseudo Silk Kimono? and, intil now, the answer was invariably a wry Fishy smile and change of tune - having played his audience like an expert angler with a prize catch now he delivers a tour-de-force performance. This should cement his place in the hearts of the huge fanbase that he has so richly come to deserve but should also wake the next generation to the power and precision of one of the last great Warrior Poets. Bravo Maestro, Bravo!
