CD Reviews

TRULY UPROARIOUS!!!
S. Henderson | Hazlet, New Jersey USA | 08/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is Warren Zevon unleashed! He was truly a one-of-a-kind songwriter/performer who wrote wierdly literate lyrics with great music and fantastic musicians behind him. When he died we lost a great one but he left behind this uproarious live album to savor...his versions of WEREWOLVES OF LONDON, LAWYERS GUNS AND MONEY, POOR POOR PITIFUL ME, I'LL SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD and BO DIDDLEY'S A GUNSLINGER are over the top and devastating. I'm glad this is finally out and gladly paid almost $30 to own it. But it is a shame that his record label hasn't released this in the USA for a reasonable price. Maybe they will soon but I couldn't wait. This live music, which is over 25 years old, makes today's so-called performers pale in comparison. The album sleeve says "The dog ate the part we didn't like." Well, I'd take what the dog ate over much that is being released these days as "music." Let's hope there's more in a mouldering vault somewhere.

You Need This Album

"If you're a Zevon fan, you need this album. It is Warren at his live, raw, cojones to the wall absolute best. The back up band of unknowns are awesome. Track listings include:

1) Stand In the Fire
2) Jeannie Needs A Shooter
3) Excitable Boy
4) Mohammed's Radio
5) Werewolves Of London
6) Lawyers, Guns & Money
7) The Sin
8) Poor, Poor Pitiful Me
9) I'll Sleep When I'm Dead
10) Bo Diddley's A Gun Slinger

The album is pure "live", no fiddling with the tapes. Sound quality (based on the LP I used to own - I haven't heard the CD) is very good. Standouts, for my money, are Werewolves, Lawyers, Poor, Poor Pitiful & I'll Sleep When I'm Dead. The only weak track is 'The Sin.' But what the hell - buy this, turn it up to 11 and remember what being young and live at a real rock concert by someone who gave a **** was like - and if you ARE still young and alive, this is what you're missing out on!

Busts through your head like a Thompson Gun...

"My heart broke when Warren passed.
I own every one of his CDs.
This was actually the second LP Record I ever bought, in around 1981?
Wore it OUT.
I've actually bought boot-legs of this since it was never released in the US. (ok, I do have it on Cassette, but it's nearly worn out!)
Thank GOD we can get a clean CD!!!!!, even if it IS from Japan! (can't read the liner (Japanese), is that lyrics? COOOL, cuz the LP never had any more than the photo montage!)

This is one of the best CDs of ALL TIME.

Warren was truely great (IS, since he lives in all of us, his devoted fans!)

Song writing and energy and lyrical message = 100% GREAT stuff.

Long Live the Original Bad-boy

Love ya' Warren.
Sleep well, you earned it."
