Post Hugh Live Recordings

Post by BasiltheBrush » 09 Nov 2012, 16:01

Bearing in mind the forthcoming live album, I thought I would ask what your favourite [official] live document of the band is post Hugh?

Be honest too... don't just plump for a MKIV option because thats the current line up.
If 'Fontwell Park' really is your guilty pleasure.... go for it (but do tell us why!!!!)

It was a toss up for me between 'On Stage On Screen' and 'ThemeninblackinBrugge'
I thought OSOS was Paul's best performance by a mile, and the whole gig was really pumping. However, TMIBIB wins for me, just because I think it's a class recording and a great chilled out session by the lads.
(My only complaint being they omitted the 'jazz club' styled version of Golden Brown!!!)

I've felt abit let down by recent recordings. The Apollo DVD feels very 'hollow' like somethings missing (and those who were there know full well it wasnt) and the recordings at the convention were pants.
Roundhouse was Okay though..... would have preferred to have heard a remastered CD version though.....

I do have a soft spot for Access all Areas..... purely because I think the selected 'setlist' is fab....

The sound on Coast to Coast was horrendous, and I sold the album as it was just so dire.

Should amend Bodysearch to include the Parr St Chronicles as well???

I'd say that '5 Live 01' is the post-Hugh "live document" that I listen to the most, even though there's a hell of a lot of debate over whether it's truly live or not :lol: But it's very listenable and manages to capture the excitement of seeing that era of the band in concert, so that!

My favourite official Hugh-era "live document" is 'All Live And All Of The Night', though. 'Live (X Cert)' is ruff'n'raw, but I love the sound of 'All Live'... especially the smooth version of 'Toiler' on there and the 'new' horn intro to 'Sleazy'. The CD edition comes with a wealth of bonus tracks too, including a version of 'Uptown' where Hugh kicks off the song with "I'm gon' grab mah COCK, gon' grab mah HAT" :lol: :lol:

I have heard most of them the first one I got was Albert Hall, which sounds great on the Ipod. SBE 05 and Rattus are both great. Watched Fontwell Park a few times that had a decent set list.

5 Live 01 for me, fantastic stuff.
You've missed Euro Live off the list, that's possibly the best DVD for me, can't beat a bit of MKIII.
Fontwell Park is interesting... JJ gets Coffee Shop all wrong though

No Access All Areas? Personally, that's my favourite of the post-Hugh live releases.

I like the 5 live 01 cd and the shepherds bush DVD most. There's some great moments on all of them though. I like JJ singing Ugly on the Roundhouse DVD and also Curfew at Hammersmith. I also like Coup de Grace on the Euro DVD.
