Whether you're a fan of the 'Pistols or not, it's hard to argue that these guys were one of the most influential bands of all time. Though they lasted only a few short years, they are among the most infamous musicians in rock & roll history (have you read their Rock & Roll Hall of Fame "acceptance" letter?) and inspired young punks and rockers to pick up instruments and start bands of their own at just about every show they played. Without the Sex Pistols, we wouldn't have Adam Ant, Siouxsie & the Banshees, the Bad Brains, and countless other bands that were awe-inspired by what they saw and heard.

Now, with an intruduction like that, you're probably wondering, "Why the 2-star rating?", and rightfully so. As a long-time 'Pistols fan, I will tell you this: There are 2 essential 'Pistols albums, "Never Mind the Bollocks" and "Filthy Lucre." The rest is garbage, this album in particular. First of all the sound quality is beyond poor, so bad that it makes classics like "God Save the Queen," "Anarchy in the U.K.", and "Pretty Vacant" sound like crap. These recordings sound like 12th generation bootleg tapes that were passed around a few thousand times before getting left in the attic of someone's un-air conditioned Florida summer home; the sound quality is beyond muddy. I'm also pretty sure these were all recorded after Glen Matlock left the band and Sid, who couldn't play bass to save his life, had replaced him. Let's just say that "Live & Filthy" is a rather apropos title.

The few--and I mean few--gems on this live comp. are "C'Mon Everybody" and "My Way," which sound like they weren't recorded live but were actually stolen off the editing floor for "The Great Rock & Roll Swindle"; they sound too good to be a part of these live shows.
