Editorial Reviews

Gotta Let This Hen Out! captures a blazing live set by the Egyptians from London's Marquee club in early 1985. The band blasts through new and old Hitchcock classics, effortlessly blending the show into what amounts to a live best-of collection and reminding fans that Robyn's legend is built as much on loud guitars as it is on eerie metaphors and jagged melodies. The album also includes bonus live tracks from a 1989 performance at The Ritz, New York City.

5.0 out of 5 stars A watershed album! August 2, 2010
By Byron
Format:Audio CD
This was a critical album for Robyn Hitchcock in that it featured live reworkings of his earlier solo tunes and Soft Boys songs as well. This followed on and solidified the awakening interest in Hitchcock sparked by Fegmania!. (The Man with the Lightbulb Head from that album got a decent amount of MTV rotation). In almost every case these live versions are better and more powerful than their studio incarnations. His band, the Egyptians, are tight and the recording is excellent. This is a great summation of his body of work up to that point (1985). He would go on to have one more minor hit in 1988 (Balloon Man). That was about it for the charts but he has continued to make good and interesting music ever since, putting out albums at fairly regular intervals. It's great to see this disc back in print (with previously unreleased bonus tracks no less!).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great live albums August 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album takes me back to 1985. Hitchcock and the Egyptians never rocked this hard on their studio albums. Highlights include "My Wife and My Dead Wife", "Acid Bird" and "Listening to the Higsons". Not a bad cut on the album. Essential.
