"There's some real flaws here, to be honest. While the material on this compilation is largely good, especially the live versions of tracks from their "If I Die, I Die" album (which should be reissued on CD, dammit!!!), this really doesn't capture the whole scope of what the Prunes were up to with a lot of their live work. Many of their shows, especially from the early part of this period, were complex performance art/noise works that had a very specific underlying concept to them, and should be taken as a whole. Chopping things up like this, even with the CD reissue, even with the accompanying video, really doesn't do their work total justice. If you can find a copy of their full 'A New Form of Beauty' live/studio set on the rare/used market, or if you can find the quite rare 'Heresie' live box 10"/booklet set, you'll feel far more rewarded than you might by picking up this Cleopatra 'scrape the barrel-bottoms' release. It's sad, really, that the only Virgin Prunes we have is on a label that doesn't generally give a flying damn about what it puts out."
So sons finds devils?

"The Virgin Prunes only availibal disc is horrible quality from a VHS tape? So very sad, and so very true! The Virgin Prunes should have a much better live album availbal. The album does have some intresting sound clips (that would be better suited some other place, not on a CD), and the songs are preformed good. The quality is not that awsome, but it does (in a way) make the disc more, well, distorted. If you are intrested in the Virgin Prunes, I would get thgis disc, for it is a great introduction to the band, for it was mine. ... fritz"
