An hour of rare live & studio recordings by one of the seminal U.K. bands from the late '60s & early '70s. Includessome previously unreleased material & was produced by underground legend Twink (Pretty Things, Tomorrow). Eight tracks total, including 'Uncle Harry's Last Freak Out' and 'Why Does A Red Cow'. 1999 release.
Not worth the high price!

"Well, I guess this is one for the Pink fairies completist, but I dont reccomend it for the casual fan. 4 of the studio tracks are from Twink's "Think Pink" lp. Theres a demo version of "Do It" and the rest are live tracks. The 2 live versions of "Mexican Grass War" & "Why Does A red Cow" are unsatisfying and unecessary. So that leaves the live versions of "Do It", "Uncle Harry's Last Freakout", & "The Snake" to justify this cd. Well guess what ? The sound quality isnt too good!
I originally gave this 3 stars because I like the Fairies, but writing this made me realize this is a pretty bad cd. Buy "Think Pink" & you have the best songs on this comp.
Its Definitely NOT worth the high price being asked (unless youre a complete Fairies nut). Luckily I got mine cheap."
Pink Fairies - 'Do It' (Total Energy)

"Another highly comprehensive compilation CD by the Pink Fairies.What I like about this disc is the fact it has three live songs from the famed 1971 Glastonbury Fayre, which are "Do It","Mexican Grass War" and the band's signature tune "Uncle Harry's Last Freakout". There's one tune I never heard "The Snake" recorded at another big outdoor bash, the Weeley Festival.Then there's three tracks from Twink's solo classic 'Think Pink', which are "Sparrow Is A Sign", "Suicide" and "Ten Thousand Words"(listen closely to the lyrics).Worth seeking out a copy."
Great late Sixties psychedelic freak out jams

"Worth the price of admission just for "Do It!" alone, but the rest of the songs are good as well, especially "Uncle Harry's Last Freak Out." If you like The MC5 and the Black Sabbath rhythm section, this is right up your alley. I probably never would have found out about this band but for Henry Rollins, whose smokin cover of "Do It" is a staple of his live show and is included on most of the Rollins Band live albums. Check 'em out."
