    Two disappointments in an otherwise stellar set

    1) the missing songs from the show. This could easily be a two LP or CD set.
    2) If the original multi-tracks exist, I would have loved to hear Mazanera’s guitar highlighted as he is on fire for some of these songs.

    Nice to finally have this.

    Mmm. Glad I only bought the CD.

  3. Michael K. says:

    Hi Paul,
    you mention in the unboxing video that you don’t know how many copies of the box-set have been made. The box set edition is limited to 2.000 copies and it is numbered on the back of the gold signed art-print. Just worth a mention…

    Always been a fan of Mr Ferry but the recent releases have been a tad disappointing for me. Went for the LP & signed poster – which I didn’t find especially attractive or desirable things in themselves. Whilst the live version arrangements are almost identical to the original recordings, they suffer from being mid-70s live recordings and therefore the sound is a bit thin.
    What would be really interesting now are further expanded versions of the classic Roxy albums and Ferry’s post-Avalon solo work. An expanded Boys & Girls or Bête Noire would definitely attract my interest.
    This release feels like it would have better served as a bonus disc to a box set of the early solo albums. £120 for some pretty basic art work and no bonus material to an already short album? No thanks.

      I really like the sound of this album. Yes, it may be a wee bit thin but to me that signifies we are getting what was recorded without cheating overdubs being added later.
      Apparently, on Kiss Alive! the only original instruments that weren’t overdubbed were the drums

  5. Eamonn says:

    Do we know is this likely to make-up the bulk of his setlist when he tours next month?

  6. Chris Squires says:

    Oooof, you pays your money and you takes your choice. It reminds me of the Keith Richards thing. £120 for an incomplete concert of 14 tracks on a single piece of vinyl. That’s all the music you get. Yes the other bits are nice, and if you are a Ferry fan the signature is worth something but by my reckoning it’s about £70 – £80 and as Alan and Andrew say below, if you are raking a good few grand for signing some bits of card why not try a bit harder. Although on Paul’s video it’s not the worst effort I’ve seen. 5/10.
    The real test would be, if that box was £60 would it be a steal?

  7. Gökhan says:

    Paul, the “unboxing” tag will help to later spot the video.

  8. Sean O'Brien says:

    Paul-
    Any thoughts as to why artists release truncated versions of archive releases? This set is missing four songs, the recent Elton John Moscow release is missing over ten. It’s unfortunate that the complete concerts aren’t made available via CD/download. Artists like Bruce Springsteen do this regularly so it is possible.
    Thanks.

  9. Otto says:

    What is in there is very nice and fitting. For the price it could have had more, maybe a book or an interview disk about the concert or something. But I’m glad there are no marbles or other crap that has nothing to do with the concert.

  10. Tim-Meh says:

    Is it me or does the silhouette on the sleeve look like Harrison Ford as Han Solo circa 1977?

  11. Quante says:

    Hi Paul,

    I’m surprised that for the significant extra money for the box set that you also don’t get the A3 signed tour poster. I bought the £40 lp, cd, poster bundle and the A3 print is well worth having.

    Allan Jones has written a great review of this album in this months Uncut magazine (Kate Bush is on the cover), outlining what an imperial and productive phase of his career Brian Ferry was at the time of his live show.

  12. andrew R says:

    Paul, poster is lovely, but £120 quid for a duplicate lp and cd and a few bits and paper pieces
    is a bit strong . Also why, when these stars sign, is it always a meaningless squiggle,
    like they were in a rush and couldn’t really be arsed. He is in effect selling you an autograph
    not giving it away for free .

    • Alan B says:

      The problem is they sign too many copies these days. Can you imagine how long it would take to properly sign say a 1000 copies? If it were me I’d be pulling my hair out. I’ve been buying Courteeners releases since their first record and they have always signed most releases. The contrast in the quality of the autographs between the early days and now is huge. They signed far fewer in the early days and their signatures are lovely. They sign so many copies of their recent releases that they are just squiggles of first names. At least they don’t charge extra for autographs. Artists who charge extra for basically a scrawl are not being fair in my opinion.
      In contrast I got a recent Neneh Cherry signed lithograph. A beautiful autograph (full name which is rare these days) Only minor gripe was she signed in black over a black area of the picture so it is difficult to see the autograph first glance.

    Hi Paul .
    I went with the LP/CD singned poster set .
    My only disappointment was that this maybe could have been a double cd of the whole concert as I’ve heard they did play more songs and also there’s no talking in between songs , otherwise a nice set .
