"If you've come this far you've heard this collection before. This e.p. was releaseed in various forms and now is on c.d. The live tracks are terrific and it certainly needs to be part of your collection."

"I first listened to this on a 10" back in the eighties, looked for it for years on cd, and only found it in 2001 in Kyoto, Japan.

Leave it to the Japanese to release the most essential recordings out there; Roddy Frame might as well be a wandering minstral from the 12th century. His love songs are as noble as they are heartbreaking. And Frame's inventiveness on Van Halen's "Jump" is perhaps the most creative cover version I have ever heard.

This is a solid acoustic set. It may seem a bit on the short side (six songs only), but it's the finest thing Aztec Camera ever did. Check it out."
