2 stars Okay, since there are no reviews yet... I don't value singles (especially in the CD age) very much, but this was among the few I used to buy cheaply just for curiosity and then throw away. 'Big Wedge' is a rocker from FISH's fine debut album Vigil In The Wilderness Of Mirrors, its least interesting track if you ask me. It is straight-forward arena rock with angry, critical lyrics about the power of money. Slightly reminding of Incommunicado (well, actually very slightly only) from MARILLION's Clutching At Straws (1987), but much worse. I could stand it better without the cheesy female backing vocals.

'Jack & Jill' is a fast, vivant, keyboard-driven non-album track, not far from the style of Vigil, but I wouldn't replace any song (except 'Big Wedge', perhaps) on that album for this song. And 'Faith Healer' (Live) is a rocker by The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. Not my cup of tea at all.

Quite good cover art though. FISH completionists will get it, others don't need it.
