Pathetic recording by a man more important for his image tha
Chet Fakir | DC | 12/15/2006

"Except for the studio song My Way, what you get here is poorly recorded cover songs played live by one of the most talentless people ever to call themselves a musician. While the versions of punk rock classics such as the NY Dolls Chatterbox or the Dee Dee Ramone and Johnny Thunders penned Chinese rocks are done fairly well, Sid Sings is interesting more for the novelty of Sid singing than enjoyable for the actual quality of the music. The recording stinks. The band (The Clash's Mick Jones and the New York Dolls Arthur Kane & Jerry Nolan) is sloppy though energetic, and none of the songs with the exception of Belsen (which Sid may or may not have had anything to do with) is an original. I'm afraid Sid adds nothing all that unique to this album of punk rock kareoke except attitude. Which along with his sneer and fashion sense was all he ever contributed to The Sex Pistols in the first place. The one and only reason to buy this wretched hunk of plastic is to have Sid's sarcastic take of the old Frank Sinatra chestnut My Way. It was done in the studio and so sounds MUCH better than the rest of this bootleg quality audience recording. But My Way is more of a novelty than anything else. It's appeal lies in Sid's snotty disregard and the irony of the song itself. Ironic considering he was a junky suicide that allegedly murdered his horrible haridan of a girlfriend Nancy Spungen. It's amusing and more than a little pathetic, but that's about it. His way indeed."
Better to donate your money to charity

"Look, Sid was a loser, drug addict, killer & did not even play on Never Mind the Bollocks. Why are you looking to buy this?

In the 1970's, this was a goof! You had the scummiest singer singing a classic crooner's song, "My way". While it is interesting it does not mean that it was good.

Its just a bunch of cover songs sung by a total, talentless loser. He wasn't good enough to play with the Sex Pistols so he shouldn't be good enough to be in your cd player.

If you like scummy, gross, junkie type people that have actual talent try Johhny Thunders "So Alone". He would have taken Sid in a junkie/ loser death match.
Goodbye All You Punks

"The album, released about 10 months after Sid died, was viewed then as either a means for a crass record company to cash in on yet another dead rocker or a fitting tribute to what some believed as the death of punk.

There is one live recording - Born to Lose - from a Sex Pistols concert in late 1977, with other live material culled from two 1978 gigs at Max's Kansas City. The most interesting cut is a rough recording of My Way, which was remixed and released as a single for The Great Rock-n-Roll Swindle.

From his early beginnings as a drummer for Siouxse & the Banshees to playing bass the Sex Pistols, Sid was more the style and swagger to British punk. And those are the reasons Sid Vicious remains alive today for so many fans of the punk movement."
