CD Reviews

5 stars yes but don't buy it yet
Michael J. Thoresen | ann arbor, michigan USA | 06/20/2006

"this recording, along with 'stand in the fire' will be released in the states soon, probably through rhino and with bonus tracks. keep playing those LP's until then. these prices are nothing but a rip-off of longtime, patient fans of warren zevon."
5 stars for the CD...1 star for price
Steve Ristola | robbinsdale, mn USA | 06/04/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"$45.99 now for this CD that was $36.99 when it first came out on Amazon?Hopefully it will be re-released domestically at a reasonable price and then I'll fill out my Zevon collection.Until then...stick with the 2 disc anthology of Warren Zevon which contains the songs "the Envoy" and "let nothing come between you"......all you need...."
Zevon's Lost classic
Paul Clarkson | Walnut Creek, CA USA | 08/10/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Originally released in 1982, Zevon's third album was one of his best releases, arguably his zenith. On the whole, the tone of the album is surprisingly light hearted ("The Hula Hula Boys") and optimistic ("Never Too Late for Love"). It also contains some of Zevon's most direct and unflinching looks at his substance abuse issues ("Ain't That Pretty at All" and the incredible "Charlie's Medicine").

While many of the tracks from this release have dribbled out on various compilations over the years, somehow this great album has been unavailable on CD until now. This imported version is indeed pricey, but the sound quality is great and the packaging is wonderful, completely recreating (albeit in miniature) the original LP packaging. Worth it? You'll have to decide for yourself, but as someone who's been waiting at least 15 years to get this on CD, I'm happy with my purchase."
