3 stars I have always been a fan of BRAND X with their jazz prog tendencies and thanks to the fine folks at Buckyball they have released an archived live recording from 1979. The line up includes the classic BRAND X personas of Phil COLLINS (drums, voice), John Goodsall (guitars) and Percy Jones (fretless bass) with Robin Lumely (keyboards) and Peter Robinson (piano). The recording is from the last of four shows they performed in NYC , Sept 1979. The between song commentary has been included as well which makes this CD run like a real live concert. Musically these guys were definitely on that evening (as they were most) and we are treated to some incredible bass, guitar and drum interplay. Most of the songs performed live is from their "Product" album and IMHO is one of BRAND X's best albums. It is truly great to hear these songs live as they get a new light shed on them. Goodsall and company toss in an extended version of "Malaga Virgen" (Morrocan Roll) which will blow you away. This CD is available in an essential 3 CD package from Buckyball Music which also contains the albums "X-Communication" and "Manifest Destiny".
