Saigon Kick - 'Greatest Hits Live' (Deadline/Cleopatra)

"Never even knew this band had a live CD out,until now.Either way,this release could've been so much better.Twelve tracks,that were recorded live anywhere from 1991-96 in cities such as New York,Flint,St.Louis and Houston.Sort of narrows it down,doesn't it?One good thing about this CD is that EVERY song comes from a different gig,but the quality sounds virtually the same.Don't you hate it when you get a live CD from one of your all-time favorites and several of the cuts sound SO obvious they're from another gig?Saigon Kick brings to you,an 'okay' live document of their music career and some MAY say it's similar to that of a bootleg.Most of the cuts here are from their self-titled debut('88) and the 'Water'('93)efforts.They SHOULD'VE stuck at least a couple of songs from their 'The Lizard'('92)disc.Tracks that make me want to hang onto my copy for at least awhile are "ICU","Coming Home","Suzy","The V Train",their signature work "What You Say" and their cover of the Sex Pistol's "Bodies".A so-so heavy rock title."
Greatest hits live?........I think not!

"Greatest hits live???....With songs such as "My Dog"..The V-Train(drum solo)..."bodies"...and ICU, you can't very well call this cd a Greatest hits live! It lacks imagination in everyway! The track listing alone should tell you that. What happened to songs like "Russian Girl"...."Eden".... and "One Step Closer"??? In my opinion, the only thing worth listening to on this cd is "Water"..."Fields of Rape" and The Way.The sound quality is over all pretty poor for a live cd. If your a hardcore Saigon kick fan like myself, pick up the cd to add to your collection. If not, Don't waste your money! (you could have done better Phil)"
Skip this one!

"I am a HUGE Saigon Kick fan...have all their cd's, even the hard-to-find "Jason" solo cd....BUT...This was quite the disappointment! I had to take a double look at the cover and credits to be sure an illegal bootleg didn't make it's way onto my record store's shelves. The sound quality is that bad. I really can't beleive the band actually could have given their stamp of approval to get this released. Sorry."
