Pretty cool recovery.
having last seen it probably 20 years ago
It's well teen angst but also ace in your face.
(*y'know...if you dig Ed Vedder's voice - I realise a lot of people don't)
Layne is off his tits but Rooster is a cracker!
One of his last performances I think, a very sad listen with this in mind. Cracking version of 'Rooster'.
YOU'RE NOT SO HAPPY!
YOU'RE NOT SECURE!
That first song is epic.
The version of Just Like Heaven is especially good.
Production sounds like it came out of my anus.
I've only really seen it on replays on mtv or via grainy youtube footage.
But I can find no evidence of it ever existing and may have imagined it.
Here is a video:
and it was very, very good.
It's a belter of a set.
If for nothing else then just for this:
May depend on whether or not you enjoy modern-day-croaky-Dylan. I do, so I think it's ace.
The obvious choice but it really was. Everyone else did a greatest hits, they got the frickin Meat Puppets on stage and did Bowie and Leadbelly covers. Made it a record in its own right.
I also liked Alice In Chains. When Layne takes his sunglasses off you can see how battered he is, white as a sheet and eyes that look straight through you. Still absolutely belts out songs like "Would" though. Nutshell is a brilliant opener.
Brilliant from start to finish.
10,000 Maniacs as well. Not heard it for ages so not sure if it stands the test of time. What's The Matter Here is still a great song though
