This is the culmination of p.h,s work with the k group extending back to sitting targets.as a live representation of Hammill it nearly satisfies(it would be impossible to capture the true energy of any p.h performance)it contains some of his 'greatest hits' and the bonus of a van der graaf track 'sphinx in the face' i brought the original uk release of this album upon it's release (on vinyl of course) and wore it out (and the patience of my doubting friends- something you get used to as lifelong Hammill devotee)so i was delighted to find the cd issue contained extra tracks on the + cd these tracks are raw recordings(bootleg) and truly do a long way to conveying the truth of a Hammill gig a great starter album for a new listener but if you want to know which Hammill album to buy the answer is really quite simple.........start saving and buy ALL of them!
