4 stars Having been on one of the concerts of this tour this live album contains many vivid memories. It was the last time I saw Woolly as part of the old BJH and it was marvellous. The exciting opening, the strong chords that leads to Child of the Universe, the haunting One night and Suicide, the beautiful For no one and the breath taking Poor manīs moody blues, it is all there. This album shows again that BJH has been a great live band. The vocals are so good, especially John Leesī voice is so strong that it can not be understood why this great band has not grown bigger. It has everything to do with their choice to continue making music they believe in and quite rightly they did. Live Tapes is simply a great live album, sounding better produced than Live but lacking somewhat in enthusiasm and shoulkd be listened to by everyone who likes melodic, beautifully crafted songs. One critic, why is it not packed in a single cd/box.
