DEEP: Without going overboard with too many plaudits, these disks are sensational. Recording quality far exceeds Skipping Reels Of Rhyme, while the better Brixton Blues falls short in the end. Good dynamics, crystal clear vocals and solid overall sound. Everything is pushed to a greater degree of clarity. Overall the slightly ragged production on the filler trax is overshadowed by the recording quality. Nice package and inserts, too.

rmd: If you enjoyed Bob's Full House (which is one of the greatest performances/recordings I know - maybe THE greatest) then you just have this for the full Brixton experience. Recording quality is first class, and the performances . . well, maybe not quite so brimming with riches as Full House - but still oh so very fine. The "Love Minus Zero" is beyond words.
