Editorial Reviews

This is a 2-CD set of all previously unreleased vintage Pearls Before Swine recordings. Disc one features '60s and '70s home demos, out-takes, various studio recordings, works in progress -- many songs that never appeared on any Pearls Before Swine albums, various cover songs, experiments, and just an amazing view of Tom Rapp's personal tape archives. Disc two features a complete early '70s live concert performance, as well as other vintage '70s live recordings and radio sessions.

It's here, it happened: a cornucopia of Pearls Before Swine artifacts saw the light of day on two discs culled from the shoeboxes Tom Rapp kept under his bed for so long. Whether Pearls Before Swine has been underrated, ignored, forgotten - it doesn't matter: those who knew the band firsthand or a generation later will hold this set close to their heart, as it is a personal gift from Tom.

If you're in love with the production and ethereal acid folk sounds that are unveiled from Pearls Before Swine studio LP's this may not be for you. This compilation, though well put together, is not the polished sound you may be used to. Loads of imperfections, weaker versions of songs and perhaps in some cases filler. If you are of the type that has to have everything by your favorite band then add this to you list. That being said, the live version of Rocket Man is fascinating to hear live. Additionally, I might add the two recorders (wooden instrument) play simultaneous and in harmony by Art Ellis on the track "Morning" (CD2) is truly amazing.
"Love, You Are Not Alone" from the first disc is choice and reminiscent of Tim Harding, another folk artist of the era. I'll stop here and conclude with why do artists feel they have the right to divulge their political beliefs either on stage or in other mediums? Tom Rapp is no exception here and literally blasts Nixon, Bush and a few others which I find disturbing and a distraction from the music. Sure, this could not have been avoided back in the day as with many lyrics of the time. It would have been perhaps more productive to offer more snippets of info about his band versus his continued political beliefs sprayed throughout a few pages of the liner notes.
