OTB:

This isn't the spot to lay down odds on the third race. OTB is where Others Talk Back and give you the lowdown on what they've been feeling lately. This one's for the customers.

Why this sat in the can for thirty-one years is beyond me. It might have had something to do with Bob Stinson’s being kicked out of the band later in 1986. Whatever the reason for not releasing this show for over three decades, this is a fantastic show. It would have sounded great if released in 1986, and still sounds great after all these years. This is a professionally recorded show – the sound is extremely crisp and punchy. This was a night when the band was “on.” This was not a night for one of those sloppy shows that they could pull out. The band that recorded this show in New Jersey in February 1986, is the classic line up, with Bob, Chris, Paul and Tommy. The show recorded was just weeks after the band’s infamous appearance on Saturday Night Live. The only quibble I have is that the band only tackled five covers on the set. Without a doubt, this live album is the Replacements at their finest.

Just months after the release of “Acoustic Classics Vol. 2,” comes a further fourteen tracks. Some of these songs come from Fairport Convention days while others were songs that he wrote for other performers. And a couple songs were originally recorded with his first wife Linda Thompson. Also included are six songs released for the first time in any form. Rest assured, these songs are not lesser material. All the songs are of an equal quality to the rest of his songs from his long career. Certainly there is truth in the title; all the songs are performed with only Richard’s voice and extraordinary acoustic guitar work.

This is the band’s twenty-second studio album of their career. It is also the second album since the departure of Marty Wilson-Piper, the band’s long-time guitarist and co-songwriter. The band’s sound has evolved with that departure. To a certain extent that band has returned back to their original eighties swirly and trippy sound. The band is much more psychedelic than they have been for many decades. Their sound is much more atmospheric too. That is not to say that the band has fallen short in the songwriting department. Steve Kilbey, singer and main songwriter, has stepped up to the plate with a stellar collection of tunes. Many bands that have been around for almost thirty-seven years have run out of gas years ago and are now going through the motions. That sentiment is light years away from where the Church is at now.
