It has been said, that the cover photo on this album, looks like a bunch of accountants on a night out, not a rock and roll band! Well, I'll have you know, we had just played a most thunderous gig at the Durham University Cricket Club Dinner, at Riverside Cafe in the Students' Union building. The two tracks towards the end of this album "Fire" and "Song 2" were taken from this gig.
I will let you be the judge of whether we rocked sufficiently hard.
Oh, and Stu (singer) and Simo (drummer) went on to make very fine careers for themselves in the financial sector, so don't knock accountants / actuaries!!!
Review of Live Recordings
by Hans Werksman of herecomestheflood.com
"Welsh guitarist Richard Thomas embraces the old adage of "go big or go home", releasing a brand new solo EP, We Are Sailing, a Best of... for those who could not keep up with his output, plus a bunch of remastered live stuff with his Uni band Mint, and a completists-only collection of odds and ends they recorded recently.
A remaster of a rough sounding collection of live songs, Live Recordings features nine classic rock covers, taken off the desk at Mint gigs back in the day. Charming, seriously out of key sometimes, but chances are they didn't have the luxury of monitors at their gigs".
