Review

This CD contains the same show that the Bronx City Rockers CD has, only on this CD the show is complete and runs in order. You'll notice this from the different track listings. The Bronx CD is also missing Jail Guitar Doors.

I've reviewed this show more or less in the review of the Bronx CD, so I won't reiterate it here. Jail Guitar Doors which is here only is a very good version of the song. It wasn't played live much but they really do it justice. It's excellent. The show probably flows better here on this CD, and there are obviously no fadeouts either, though the fadeouts kind of add to the sound of a CD if you know what I mean. Kind of builds up a bit more enthusiasm in the listening experience rather than an extended period of crowd noise and sometimes silence from the stage before a song. Ironically, this CD is titled The Guns Of Brixton, yet the Bronx CD has that song as its first track.

Rated: 8 / 10

Extra

This bootleg clocks in at 77 minutes, so Bronx City Rockers was obviously edited to fit it under the 74 minute mark.

Thanks to Anders Thörnqvist for the copy of this.
