Jubilee Street - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Record version is a bit wet. Live version is amazing power pop. Obviously the Budokan version of I Want You To Want Me, as well.
Pink Floyd - Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun
any track from MBV's Isn't Anything.
Wasn't that impressed with the version on Rave Tapes, but live it's an absolute full-on banger.
Album version sounds very dated and stereotypical post-rock, annoying drum machine and pro-tools sound. Sounds much better with real drums and the swooshy guitar effects.
The Clash - Straight to Hell
But Mercy Seat from The Live Seeds album than the proper album version. Live, that is Cave and the band at their absolute best. On the album, it's merely a good song.
it's one of the most amazing pieces of music ever recorded. Live, they manage to take it to an even higher level. The version on the "God Is In the House" DVD is incredible.
live is arguably even better, but the studio version is no slouch either.
it's not so much that the records are weak as much as live they sound like some sort of all consuming force.
The Italian piano house version they've been doing live for the last 15 years is much better than the recorded version.
Approaches same level. The performance of it in Mistaken for Strangers or the one from Jimmy Fallon before the album release are my 2 faves though.
Haven't seen them live since so can't comment on the gigs. Always found their studio albums a bit frustrating despite a fair few magic moments. Incredible live band though.
Given a much beefier fuzz-bass sound than the tinny sound on record.
On record they sound too much like Clinic to click.
Live, they're insane.
had billed up Jubilee st. to everyone as being a complete powerhouse after seeing it live
