The Real USA December 24, 2005
Written by mflaherty
No question about it, the sound quality and the performances here are top rate. If you donít have the cd issue of USA, thereís no reason to hesitate: buy this download. On that I base my 5 star rating.
Less obvious is the value for those of us who have the cd. My guess is that if you have to ask, you shouldnít bother, while if, like many of us, you knew without thinking about it that this was one you wanted, you wonít be disappointed.
Iím among those who wanted to see this release--Crossís contribution returned and no edits--for the USA cd. To be fair, there would have been complaints no matter what decision was made: someone wouldnít like it. I agree with others who have said that the improv is nice to have, but the original edits were good choices, while the extended "Easy Money" is incredible, and may be worth the price of the download on is own. Itís very nice to finally have the full set with the "real" violinist.

The sound quality-excellent, for what it is. If concerned, download the mp3 rather than the FLAC. The performance is intense. The guitar on Easy Money just about stiffs JW again, and am I really to believe that these boys are Read more

Iím often asked why I collect certain bandís live material. Why, for example, would you want multiple shows of the same band playing the same songs from the same tour? But, the truth is only a few bands have that Read more

Everyone sounds like theyíre where they are, not smacked on a single sheet of paper but in living, moving colour.
You can hear the many subtle different tones and voices David will express on viola Read more

I was born in 1960 in a small city in Spain. In 1975 I discovered "Larks Tongues in Aspic", for me it was a shock. Even now it is one of my favorites recordings Read more
