CD Reviews

A great album - now it sounds great, too!

"Okay, we have seen a lot of "enhanced" CDs in the 90s. Nearly all the classic rock albums have been remastered to get another buck from the fans and sometimes it was even worth it. And this is definetly the case with Cold Chisel's East! The quality of the recording definetly increased and three bonus tracks (outtakes from the recording sessions) have been added to the CD. There is even multimedia material for your computer! Cold Chisel is one of Australia's rock classics and "East" is one of their best recordings. This "enhanced" version is worth every cent!"

"The release of East, their third album, is when Cold Chisel moved from being Australia's best pub band and became a legend. The largely autobiographical or topical nature of many of the songs, especially Standing on the Outside, Star Hotel, Rising Sun, the tongue-in-cheek Ita (on the Australian release), and the sheer depth and variety of material on this album placed Chisel in the top rank in Australia.

That they never received recognition overseas, especially in the USA, was an indictment of the recording industry - a situation which lent itself to the writing of 'You've got nothing I Want' for the Circus Animals album. Still, they were all ours, and they were magnificent.

I played some of East while writing this review and was again reminded why I loved this band then, and why they still excite me now.

I can still remember rushing out to by the LP of East on the day of release, which included a bonus single (included on the remastered CD) for the first few thousand copies. Cold Chisel engendered such devotion. On East you can hear why.

There is something terribly wrong if East is not in your collection."

"some say boring, some say the highlite of their career, for someone who matured in the eighties and listened, "not heard", what was being played in the eighties, east is, as well as was, a rockin' album that deserves classic rock status. i had the privilege of living in canberra from 1978 to 1981, and had my record collection stolen in 1985 after being back in the states for 4 years. the only album i truly wished to replace was east. thank god for the net and , for now i can replace my east album. d.g.5/21/00"
