Budgie is a 'stayer' in my books - a band worth listening to today - not just because they are 'classic rock' or something as worn out as that - but because their stuff still sounds fresh and exciting today as it did then (in other words, not the dreaded 'dated'). Mind you, the later Budgie lapsed into the 80's destruction of hard rock as we know it...however this is one CD that replays their talent pre-80's that captured them at their best. 'Breaking all the house rules' is worth the price of admission alone!
The packaging is fine, though I really wish Noteworthy had gone to the trouble of hiring a proofreader: the liner notes have errors galore. The credits seem thorough, which is nice, and the interview quotes provide some meaningful information. The bonus tracks are acceptably annotated as well.
This edition sounds better than the first Repertoire CD edition--sharper, clearer, broader, deeper--but not better enough for me to want to invest in a whole new edition.
What make the Noteworthys noteworthy are the bonus tracks. But even there I'm not sure they're worth the investment. Some of the bonus tracks do seem very enticing, especially the ones with Tony Bourge.
Such as "Honey"! Although not listed in the amazon description, it is the first bonus track on 'Bandolier.' "Honey" is mentioned in the Repertoire discography accompanying some of their Budgie CDs, but unfortunately Repertoire didn't include it in their otherwise great 2CD Budgie compilation, 'An Ecstasy of Fumbling.Read more ›
