Mike's Comments(rates this release 4.75/5.0)
This is the first of Sabotage's 'The Complete Hawaii Tapes'. An excellent audience recording from his recent Hawaiian Hit And Run shows (as opposed to Hit 'N' Run!!). There are some great new takes on old classics like 'When Doves Cry' and 'Alphabet Street', my personal favourite is 'Kiss', bringing it back into the year 2003 with a kick up the ass-it's highly addictive listening! Also a welcome return to live shows must go to 'Shhh', and it's a corker on here. Prince and the band are in a funky mood and put on a great show for the enthusiastic audience. The sound quality of the aftershow is excellent, but slightly less so than the main concert. It's full of extended funky jams, including a LONG-workout of Mama Feelgood. The highlight (for me) is 'No Diggity'. How often do you get to hear one of your favourite non-Prince songs performed by the man himself??! The art-work is stunning, and the booklet contains a nice review of the Maui concert and aftershow.
