"This is not what I wanted to spend my cash on. Dont get me wrong, Screaming Lord Sutch is great but these are not the original recordings I am interested in. These songs were probably re-recorded in the 80's giving the songs a real slickly produced make over. Cd's like these never make the buyer aware that these are not the original recordings. This is the second time i've been duped in less than a month. Get another Sutch album. Now I have to stab my roomate with somthing rusty. Oooh i'm hot and bothered."
Ladies and Gentlemen--Lord Sutch !

"I'm not sure if this is the definitive Sutch CD, but it will certainly tell you what he was all about ! I gave it four stars because it really is a lot of fun to listen to--although I'm not sure if all the laughs are intentional !
First, the problem--sorry, but as a vocalist, Sutch was pretty bad--studio tricks and good musicians can't hide the fact that this guy was no singer.
On the other hand, his energy and enthusiasm won me over. I bet if you had a party--and waited until everyone was "feeling no pain"--playing this disc at full volume would be a blast !
There are twelve tracks--the first six have a horror theme with "Jack the Ripper" and "Murder in the Graveyard" delivering the goods--the remaining songs are more conventional rockers, taken at a frantic pace. Warning--if you like deep, meaningful lyrics, forget about it ! This is not Bob Dylan !
Lord Sutch is no longer with us. Apparently, he was a great showman, and many big UK musicians got their start as one of his "Savages". People who saw him in concert say that the world became a duller place when he left.
Dear Reader--I don't know if you will like this CD, or hate it, but one thing for sure--like Sutch himself, it is not dull ! !"
