Editorial Reviews

One of the early New Wave's most accomplished musical outfits, Missing Persons began life, appropriately enough, as a live band. And though one might think that Dale Bozzio's unorthodox vocals (she wished to be an actress, but Frank Zappa enjoyed her hyper-Bostonian accent enough to put her unusual vocal talents to work on several LPs) could not hold up during a live performance, those signature growls, chirps and hiccups were ideally suited to the live venue. Whatever one may think of Dale's vocal talents, former touring guitarist Warren Cuccurullo and now legendary drummer Terry Bozzio (also Zappa alumni, and Dale's then-husband) possessed more than enough experience, and talent, to ground the synth-driven band in solid rock-n-roll virtuosity. Live From The Danger Zone is, digitally remastered, is their first Official Live Record and contains all their MTV Hits and more.

One of the early New Wave's most accomplished musical outfits, Missing Persons began life, appropriately enough, as a live band. And though one might think that Dale Bozzio's unorthodox vocals (she wished to be an actress, but Frank Zappa enjoyed her hyper-Bostonian accent enough to put her unusual vocal talents to work on several LPs) could not hold up during a live performance, those signature growls, chirps and hiccups were ideally suited to the live venue. But whatever one may think of Dale's vocal talents, former touring guitarist Warren Cuccurullo and now legendary drummer Terry Bozzio (also Zappa alumni, and Dale's then-husband) possessed more than enough experience, and talent, to ground the synth-driven band in solid rock-n-roll virtuosity. Indeed, as many fans and New Wave connoisseurs are aware, this band really could play. 'Live from the Danger Zone' is yet another fine, live performance from Missing Persons, a must-have pendant to the Cuccurullo-produced 'Late Nights, Early Days' of the mid-'90s) and something of a must-have since it contains four tracks from the band's second album effort, 'Rhyme and Reason,' an elegant, somewhat groundbreaking collection of synth-y, jazz-y tunes that many fans consider MP's finest recorded moment. As many insiders know, that album's studio sessions placed an incredible strain on the Bozzio marriage, with Terry, and to some extent Warren, demanding of Dale take after take in order to coax her range into deeper territory. The boot-camp tactics worked, and 'Rhyme' clearly differs from its certified gold predecessor, 'Spring Session M,' via a more controlled, and at times sultrier, approach to Dale's quirky vocal styling.Read more ›

This is a great live recording from the Rhyme & Reason Tour. It was recorded at Irvine Meadows October 5, 1984. I have a bootleg (from the original FM broadcast) of this show and I was wondering why they saw fit to leave off 'Clandestine People' which was played right after 'Give'. Also eliminated is all of the between song talk by Dale which I like in my live stuff.

I'll give it 5 stars. The band was on fire that night. I really wish some live video would surface of this tour!!

Underrated in their day, Missing Persons was one of the more exciting bands of the 80's. Known for their incredible musicianship, with a quirky vocalist - Dale, they had several great hits, all here on this collection.
Overall great sound quality. Recommended for your daily 80s flashback.

There was a wave of Missing Persons re-issues and archival collections back when this disc came out. It's a blistering set culled from the Rhyme & Reason tour, notable for the fact that Terry Bozzio went totally electronic this time out with a stand up kit of triggered pads that he designed (I think...) himself and samples of his acoustic drums. The album at the time was poorly received, but that didn't dim the band's spirits any as they kill here with an incendiary set of hits and deep tracks from R & R. This one isn't as good as the other live set that came out a few years before, but to me, any live Missing Persons is great Missing Persons! I guess Dale feels she needs to put her mug on the covers of any new MP releases, but I guess that's nothing new, now is it?

Recommended for completists...
