Synopsis

Product Description
Ian McCulloch and the boys have been on the road recently playing their classic Ocean Rain album in its entirety (and are about to put out their first new album in years), but we ve unearthed THE bona-fide Bunnymen live recording, a July 19, 1983 concert at the Royal Albert Hall that was part of the tour the band made in support of, you guessed it, Ocean Rain (and has only been previously available as part of a pricey imported reissue of that very same album)! This is the band at its peak with respect to material, performance and sound. Essential for Echo fans, out with bootleg-like digi-pak packaging from our Noble Rot label!
 

CD Reviews

Prime Era Concert
directions | Space Time Foam | 11/22/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This recording thankfully does not make the mistake of many live albums (cut and paste songs from different concerts, overdubbing, an official concert of the band as now past their prime playing a "greatest hits" tour)but instead offers you a full version of Echo and the Bunnymen during their "Ocean Rain" tour. There are of course songs off that album such as the hit "The Killing Moon" but also from previous albums ("Crocodiles", "The Cutter"). The concert is presented in its entirety complete with impromptu segues into "Light My Fire" (note that after this an ep was released of a live tour with covers of influential classics including "People are Strange"). The "live feel" is present but since it was originally officially recorded (although it has circulated otherwise) the sound is close to pristine. My only complaint is that since the concert was videotaped is that there be an official dvd to go with it. Perhaps a future endeavor."
