Is it possible that I'm the only diehard WINO fan that's a bit disappointed with The Resurrection of Whiskey Foote? Not that there's anything particularly WRONG with the album...I think I just set my expectations a little high. It opens and closes strong, but I don't find much to remember in the middle. Maybe it'll grow on me. I'd be interested in the G.O.M.E. faithful's thoughts.

Anyway, for all the other Wino fans out there, I present to you the eponymous 1990 release of THE OBSESSED. This record is long out of print. This particular version is a reissue which is also out of print. The reissue includes a 10-track live performance from 1984. Personally, I don't consider the live tracks essential. If you're a fan of Wino and THE OBSESSED, you've heard much better performances. Still, it's very raw, and some people seem to really dig it. Plus, I don't like the idea of someone tracking this down, just for the live tracks, and getting torched by some eBay bloodsucker for an outrageous sum of money. Enjoy.
