CD Reviews

Yes! A stunningly accurate document . . .
12/30/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There are two halves to this CD - one of the early, pre-Cut punk stuff, one of the later more overtly reggae/African influenced stuff. This is an accurate depicition of the band at these stages, full of irreverance and spastic musical joy. I love the Slits and saw them several times, this is more like what they were than any of their studio recordings manage to express."
Better than "Cut"

"These live recordings are much more interesting than the studio versions. The "punk era" performances are best, the later versions are less exciting. Overall, a good introduction to the band. It's just a pity that Budgie doesn't appear."
HALF GOOD

(3 out of 5 stars)

"The first 6 songs are intense riot/punk stuff,live in 77,and they rule.The 7th song is "acoustic" though it features nothing but an acoustic guitar and dual Ari Up&Nina Hagen vocals.The "dub era" songs are downright boring and don't even sound like dub to me (at least in the reggae sense of the word).I guess the cd is OK for the first 6 tracks,just not exactly the best bang for the buck."
