Editorial Reviews

The legendary 'Modfather' Paul Weller will release his first-ever electric live solo album. Catch-Flame! features songs from every part of Weller's illustrious career including Jam classics ("A Town Called Malice," "That's Entertainment," "In The Crowd") and two of The Style Council's biggest hits ("Shout To The Top," "Long Hot Summer"). The 23-track, two-disc set was recorded at London's Alexandra Place during the final show of his sold-out tour in support of 2005's As Is Now. Deluxe package also available. Standard Jewel Case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I had been there! July 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is absolutely fantastic! Paul and the band are incredibly tight and sound great together. Paul sounds very loose and like he's having a lot of fun - not as serious as some live shows I've heard.

The songs focus mostly on his solo records, with some Jam and Style Council mixed in (all on disc two). Wisely, only five of the twenty three tracks are from "As Is Now" and they're the uptempo ones - it's not a hard sell by Yep Roc to make you buy that album if you don't already have it.

The extended jams for "Porcelain Gods/Broken Stones," "In The Crowd" and "Foot Of The Mountain" (one of my favorite solo tracks) all are focused and don't wander so they keep your attention. The crowd is energetic and into the show and are very appreciative when the Jam and Style Council classics get into the mix (although the sing-along to the album closing "Town Called Malice" is pretty lame).

I haven't listened to the somewhat difficult to find "Live Wood" concert disc for a while to give a good comparison. However, since "Catch-Flame" covers all his solo discs instead of only "Paul Weller" and "Wild Wood," this is a more balanced collection. Highly recommended!

personal highlights:

Blink And You'll Miss It

Up In Suze's Room

Porcelain Gods/I Walk On Gilded Splinters

In The Crowd

Foot Of The Mountain

That's Entertainment

Broken Stones

Long Hot Summer

Shout To The Top

5.0 out of 5 stars Catch this flame - NOW! July 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Paul Weller is one of those rare artists who combines classic soul, rock, R&B and British pop in one highly satisfying package. His songs are thoughtful and introspective, smart and wise, powerful and rocking. His records have remained consistent with these attributes over the years and "Catch-Flame!" is no exception. With his first proper live recording, Paul's career comes full circle with this commanding two-cd set. There's everything for the curious new listener as is for the old fan - energetic electric arrangements as well as acoustic-band renditions of old favorites, all backed by his very potent and talented band. Sonically, the recording is clean but not too polished, much like his studio outtings - a bit raw, capturing the full essence of the night which adds to the intensity and genuinity of Paul's music. Of course, old fans will be basking in the glory of these new takes on old classics. Also, I highly recommend this release to any fan of classic rock, soul & pop and/or to anyone who is inquisitive about this highly underrated and multi-talented artist. "Catch-Flame!" will be a strong addition to any collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blazing Hot Quality Rock and Roll February 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The industry reviewer has it right: Paul Weller just keeps getting better as he gets older. While I can't claim to have been a fan of his since the days of The Jam, I did come aboard several years ago and since that time have come to discover that Weller is one of the few musicians performing good, basic, solid, blazing hot quality rock and roll for the adult listener. Not that kids can't enjoy his music, they can and many do, but Weller's mature approach to his music is one that is rarely heard in the rock and roll genre.
My conversion has come gradually but became complete with the issue of Weller's As Is Now. Since then, I have been picking up others I have missed. On Catch-Flame, the listener is treated to live and powerful renditions of twenty four songs that span his career. There is nothing here that is not extremely entertaining, save the final song which one reviewer mocked for its "sing-along" segment. I concur on that.
Since there is so much that's good here, I will point out only those songs that particularly fired me up. They are: Blink and You'll Miss It, Paper Smile, Going Places, Up In Suze's Room, the Porcelain Gods/I Walk on Gilded Splinters segued medley, the supercharged rendition of In The Crowd, Come On/Let's Go, Wild Wood, The Pebble and the Boy, Long Hot Summer and the soulful Shout to the Top. If you like intelligent, high quality rock and roll, then Paul Weller is the man you should hear and Catch-Flame serves as the perfect vehicle for a broad overview of his abilities.
WARNING: I have been through three copies of this. In each package, the CDs' holes were too large for the tines to which they are supposed to be attached. I had a spare 2-disc holder laying around, but the holes are too big for it as well, so the problem appears to be a manufacturing defect. The playing surfaces of the CDs were undamaged so the "floating" discs are just an annoyance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Live Album August 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Yes it is "another live album" but Weller is beginning to acknowledge his past and returns here to a couple of Jam classics. The music is well performed, passionate in a few spots. Well worth the investment if you're a fan, if you are only curious get Modern Classics first.
