Review by: chill782001On 16 Apr 2006 at 11:39 CEST
Firstly, let's remind ourselves that the MC5's semi-mythical status rests on 3 albums. A live album ("Kick Out The Jams"), where the band were unhappy with their performance and asked Elektra to allow them to re-record it (the label refused), and 2 studio albums ("Back In The USA" and "High Time") where unsympathetic production ended up resulting in something very different to what the band were actually aiming for. Therefore, none of the band's official releases made during their lifetime can really be considered a fair representation of this band's power and energy.
That said, this boot may go some distance towards correcting this long standing issue. It's true to say that the sound on some of the tracks is far from perfect (although some tracks sound pretty good), but this collection of live and unreleased studio material captures the band's funk, free jazz and blues influenced high octane rock and roll in a much more raw and pure manner than anything released while the band were in existence. Plus, the live tracks are testament to the fact that Wayne Kramer and Fred Smith really were two of the greatest guitarists of all time, as well as the fact that few singers ever had a vocal range comparable to Robin Tyner's. If you are into the 5, this is definitely worth getting.
