"Be careful when you order this CD as it is EXACTLY the same concert as the 4th disc of XTC's "Transistor Blast" album. If you have that collection, you don't need this!While it is indeed a great concert, the other material on "Transistor Blast" is worth owning, so I suggest you buy that one instead."
Terrific live disc from influential "new wave/punk" band

"XTC transcended the genre(like Elvis Costello)that it was originally a part of: Andy Partridge and Colin Moulding's songwriting shows nuance, depth and an amazing ability, like the Beatles and the Kinks, to reach beyond their influences and establish a sound at once recognizable and yet their own.This 1980 album is also available as the TRANSISTOR BLAST boxed set but, if you haven't truly dived into XTC's black sea of music, then this is a great place to start to experience the live band. The band breezes through a selection of their early material up from WHITE MUSIC to BLACK SEA. The inspired and melodic guitar playing of Dave Gregory builts on Andy and Colin's unusually structured "pop" songs.A great album(and one of the few places to hear the band in their prime live) well worth the investment. If you want to spend the extra money, though, TRANSISTOR BLAST is the more complete experience."

"It's amazing that XTC could make such a great live album, when you recall that they had to stop touring due to Andy Partridge's overwhelming stage fright--and that led, directly, to their Beatles-like transformation from a charming and energetic live act to an ingenious and imaginitive studio group. Don't waste time. Get this LP. American radio ignored XTC, their American label botched their promotion, and the result was that the band, despite it's best efforts, has withered on the vine. This record is one of several highlights from a career that you shouldn't have missed."
