2010 issue UK Deluxe Edition 2-CD set - The long, strange saga of The Fall, begins with 'Live At The Witch Trials'. The group's 1979 debut album was recorded in-studio [despite its title] during a single day, fully capturing the urgency of both the times and the music. This Expanded Edition of the album adds a myrid of Bonus Recordings. Accompanying the original album on CD One are tracks which formed the 'Bingo Master's Break-Out!' EP [originally released August 1978] followed by the second single [originally issued November 1978]; along with a summer 1977 rehearsal tape and live recordings from 1977, previously issued on a Virgin Records compilation 'Short Circuit - Live At The Electric Circus'. CD Two gathers together the two BBC Radio 1 John Peel Sessions that the band performed during this era followed by a dozen tracks recorded at Mr. Pickwick's venue in Liverpool in August of '78

"I love this album. For years I had it on a tape together with Dragnet. Finally got it on CD. This album sounds stripped down, nothing fancy just great music and Mark E Smiths distinctive voice. The entire album was recorded in one day and mixed the following day. The Fall are an underrated band to come out of the punk / post-punk era of England. This album sounds just as good today as it did when I first heard it some 17 years ago. Although it is the Fall's first album it sounds remarkably mature and together. Highly recommended to those who have an open mind to music."

"eh? am i really the first person to review this album? surprising, especially considering how influential this record has been. the music of The Fall is both engaging and off-putting. the casual fan of punk or post rock will probably be confused. and that my friends, may be the point. or maybe not. you decide. take a listen. personally, Live At The Witch Trials is probably my favorite Fall record. this version is a deluxe edition which contains a ton of bonus tracks; of which the highlight is probably the inclusion of the Bingo Master's Break-Out! songs."
