Born to be Divine

"This CD is actually a compilation of two live performances in Manchester back in 1983. Divine is basically singing over his pre-recorded songs. The audio quality is not the greatest, but it is still fun to listen to Divine's interaction with the audience."

"The operative word here is "cheap." This CD is from a video recording of two of Divine's performances at a nightclub in Manchester, England from 1983.What we have hear is the audio track from the live video footage. A muffled, monophonic recording of Divine basically singing along to her own songs being played over the club's PA system. In between songs, she talks dirty to the audience, and even answers the occasional audeince question. She sounds bored, as if she'd rather be anywhere else. She doesn't seem to be enjoying herself very much. She also sounds as if she's stuck in the middle of a tour, and she's grown tired of doing the same act night after night after night...The cheapness of this production is painfully apparent by the misspelling of her song "The Name Game" on the cover as "Gang Bang," not once, but twice(!) This CD is only of interest as a documentary oddity, but it's definitely not for your listening pleasure..."
