CD Reviews

Hart's best, but, another update sure would be nice.
MG Nagy | 08/27/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the best percussion records ever (as someone pointed out earlier) got a little bit better when released on CD. The technically excellent recording was finally unshackled from a horrible vinyl pressing. Previously unreleased material was added to this release, and some resequencing was done, bringing a short running time out to a little over 38 minutes.

The music is absolutely stunning. This is real-time scoring work, with the Dead's backline getting a lot of help from their friends (including Airto and Flora). This is primal, unforced, experimental, and raw, making for a listening experience unlike any other. The insert is informative, with insights into the creation of the music, and including a fair amount of technical detail on the recording and mastering processes.

While "Napalm For Breakfast" will be a brutal low frequency response test of you system, it's time for another update. At a minimum, a two channel, 24/96 & 24/192 Classic Records release.

A very acquired taste, and very recommended."
Best persussion CD Ever!

"The Rhythm Devils are true genuises. I bought this CD years ago, but just brought it back out into my rotation. No one else could have captured the feeling of the movie except for Mickey Hart. This is my favorite Hart CD. Truly a classic."

"Let this CD take you to the jungle. Mickey Hart and Co. use pecussion to help you with that trip.Too bad this is such a short album, because the rhythms are so awe-inspiring! You just don't want the album to stop! I can't believe I'm hearing this!Only the Rhythm Devils (and Mickey Hart in particular) can evoke the images of places that you can travel to while listening. It is hard to describe but his percussion arrangements with the other famous musicans around the world does this!Check out the closing track - Napalm for Breakfast to test your stereo speakers. Just an awesome album. Mickey will continue making superb albums that will take the listener to other places and beyond!"
