Live X-certs. A snapshot of those wonderful early years.

Funny thing about X-CERT. With this being the pre-inernet 1970's and me in the US, I had little info on the band. After spinning a pricey import, Hugh seemed at times to barely keep up with the other three, leading me to 'spect that the band employed a 'ringer,' much like the Pistols did for BOLLOCKS. Of course, Hugh handily dispelled that notion when I saw him live several decades later.

Is the latest 'Feel It Live' CD any good? Not heard much about it and couldn't be arsed to shell out for it on tour. Will probably get around to it when it reaches the bargain bucket but I have to say I haven't read any reviews where fans are actually raving about this release. Am I missing out on a great live album?

Access All Areas, absolutely love that album, with the BBC Hammersmith Odeon one a close second. Generally though, I'm not a massive fan of the official releases - Live X Cert is ok, but the rest don't do much for me.

I wasn't really that keen on access all areas, I think it didn't sound live enough.

I really enjoyed Feel it live last weekend driving up to Lincoln in the rain. Thet live 5 01 or whatever it is called is also very good. I don't really think there is a live release that does the mark one line up true justice. I think bits of Cert x and All live are great but there surely could have been a better mark one release?

I've always been a fan of Friday the thirteenth, Skin Deep sounds really good on it.

Been listening to X-Certs and All Live again recently . Hadn't listened to either in ages . I like XCerts - first live one etc etc , but there's a certain intensity there that doesn't appear on any elsewhere - Hugh winding the crowd up, his sarcasm , an edginess. All Day is far more polished , better production and a few crappier songs IMO( the Aural one's , the brass section) - but still good . I think pretty much all of the live releases have something , even if its a snapshot of the band at a given time,while Xcerts isn't my favourite , still think its 5live.... maybe .....its the band at their very antagonistic best .
All quiet ..........
