CD Reviews

MC 5 -'Greatest Hits Live' (Purple Pyramid)
Mike Reed | USA | 12/21/2003
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Here's a disc that should've been titled 'Raw Live Cuts' or maybe 'Bootleg Bits Of Home Tapes'.The first three songs "Rambling Rose","Kick Out The Jams" and "Come Together" are of rather dismal sound quality,but rest assure,'Greatest...' does get better.Decent sounding tracks would be "Rocket Reducer #62",the bootie-stomping "Looking At You","Human Being Lawnmower","Borderline","I Want You",and "Black To Comm".Keep in mind that these songs do have MUCH of a bootleg vibe to them.There are a few covers like James Brown's "Cold Sweat" and Cream's "Born Under A Bad Sign".It's more than safe to say that 'Greatest...' is aimed toward collectors and MC 5 completists."
Another disapointment

"All MC5 fans are hoping that a concert as clean as "Jams" will someday surface. (W're also hoping that Electra will release the complete "Jams" sessions!) But this CD is just another collection of non-soundboard live recordings. Not too listenible and even less entertaining. So far the only postumous MC5 CDs worth picking up are "Babes In Arms", "Thunder Express" and "Big Bang".
(MC5 fans should sniff out Rob Tyner's incredible solo swan song "Bloodbrothers"!)"
