Okay, I really don't understand all the hate for this album. It's a live record, and all live records have their flaws. As for the audio quality of this concert, I have no idea what the other reviewers are talking about; this recording is practically flawless in its clarity. True, in some areas Courtney's vocals get a little buried underneath the drums and guitar, and Zia's keyboards are not as audible as the other instruments, but that's what happens with live recordings. And, as the liner notes stated rather clearly, the show was recorded live with no overdubs, so any mistakes are simply part of the package!

'Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia' is quite possibly the last great rock 'n roll record to be recorded in the 20th Century, and it's easily one of the best albums released in the 21st Century to date. It also heralded a new era of exposure and popularity for the band and brought them global exposure. In the end, though, their relationship with Capitol Records soured with subsequent releases, and the Dandy Warhols went back to writing, recording, and releasing their music their own way. Regardless, 'Thirteen Tales...' is a gem, and to commemorate its release, the Dandies took the album on tour to celebrate its thirteenth birthday.

"Godless," "Mohammed," and "Nietzche" sound very much like they did on the record though perhaps a bit slowed down in tempo. Courtney's vocals get a little lost in all the effects on "Country Leaver," which isn't as strong a performance as on the original album, and the vocals continue to sound a little weak as "Solid" gets revved up. As the band jumps into "Horse Pills," they up the tempo a bit, and Courtney more talks his way through the song than sings.

I love the Dandy Warhols, I love the studio version of this album, and I loved seeing the band on this tour. But this recording is just plain terrible. It literally sounds like a fan's recording from somewhere in the crowd. The percussion and guitars are very heavy in the mix, and the vocals and keyboard can barely be heard. Some tracks just sound like a muddy mess from start to finish. Very, very disappointing.

Got this album for free. I would have not been happy paying for it, bottom line.

While it's cool to hear them perform this AMAZING album live in one continuous flow, the other reviews hit the nail on the head: the recording quality for this is piss-poor. Stick with the studio album.

As a newly minted fan of the Dandies (I heard "Bohemian" for the first time about a year ago and was left speechless. I thought, and still think, that it is one of the top 5 rock and roll songs ever written or recorded), I approached this album with no preconceived prejudices from having heard the studio versions of the 13 songs (except, of course, "Bohemian"). I'll tell you straight out: there's nothing about the quality of the recording that has diminished the impact of any of the truly great songs included here. The opening trifecta has turned out to be a revelation to mez nearly equalling my first encounters with Zep's "Black Dog," Hendrix's cover of "All Along The Watchtower," and Ted Nugent's live recording of "Stranglehold" as a teenager, as well as "Bohemian Like You" itself more recently. I have subsequently heard the studio versions of many of the 13 songs and I have tovsay that, unlike other reviewers here, I really prefer this live version of "Godless" to the original. However, I do like the studio versions of "Mohammed" and "Nietzsche" slightly better than their live counterparts, but just slightly. In all three cases, I feel both versions have their various strengths and weaknesses, but that each will stand up perfectly well to repeated listenings and none of them has anything to apologize for. Behind those thrwe, I really cant say, except in the case of "Bohemian," where the studio version wins out by a mile because, for me, it is one of those inspired works of perfection that can simply never be improved upon...or even matched, for that matter. But that's not to say the live version is bad. It's not. It's great, as far as it goes.Read more ›
