CD Reviews

Good tune

"well for starters this song was NOT done for the opening of the hacienda in 1981.
it was originally done for a cassette magazine IE a magazine which came with a free cassette called "TOUCH" which covered the local music scene in manchester at the time.
the cassette had such stuff as interviews and music from local bands ect at the cutting edge of music at the time.
video 586 was from this tape.
it also came in 2 versions as well, the second of which ive been unable to find since.
i had this tape when it first came out but unfortunately lost it.
AAAAhhhh well.
nice to see its still available though.
plus this song also appears at the end of the taRRAS chevenko videao filmed in new york with some dodgy home video from stephen morris. :)"
A 1981 New order jam | Columbus, OH | 08/15/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This reminds me of some of some of the longer songs I've heard recorded live by New order from 81 to 83, part of their most creative period. It is New order jammin' electronically, to be used as a sonic background. The "song" has elements that you will find in the Peel Session version "5-8-6", "Everything's Gone Green", "Tempation/Hurt", and even some "Blue Monday". While this track is not essential, if you have always liked these mentioned songs, you may find this CD interesting. The sound quality of the recording is very good, but the track is sort of aimless. It probably was never really meant to be released. Actually it is a little disappointing to hear elements of some of my most all time favorite tracks reduced, simplified to sort of musical doodling. This track makes it all seem so simple. I really wish this track had been released 15 years ago! But, if you have always really, really liked "Everything's Gone Green", and the 2nd Peel Session with "5-8-6" (the 4 track second Peel Session is an essential New order recording), then you will find this at least an interesting glimpse intto New order circa 1981. They should release some live recordings from the early to mid 80's, along with the Joy Division live sets!"
A very cool intrumental

"I can't believe this song is 23 minutes long and doesn't get old. Yet, somehow, they manage to subtly change the various rythyms, pads, tones, etc. so that the song always seems fresh. Probably my favorite instumental of all time."
