3 stars The best of the Disky releases

This live album is at least live, although a ripped off version of Live at the Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Part 1. In other words, it should had been an uneccesary release if it was not for the fact that the original is very difficult to find these days. That's the only saving grace with this rip-off release. The music itself is excellent. In particular the closing Song Of Scheherazade. But before that song, we have been given excellent versions of Can You Understand, Can You Hear Me and Carpet Of The Sun. I have omitted Prologue which is an orchestral affair with little input from the band. Can You Understand is brilliant and in many ways the essence of this band. Well, the prog rock era of this band. Let's forget the ABBA era. The buzzing sound is pretty annoying on this album. It is most definate a lo-fi affair.

I cannot fault the music on this album at all. If you cannot find the original King Biscuit album, this album is a good replacement. I love it........ but have just ordered the King Biscuits albums from a shop in Japan. I guess those will replace my well worn out Disky albums.

3 stars.
