Live 4/ 30/ 96

Blackball 2.2

Released on November 2, 1999


The long-awaited IPO CD issue of the fabulously limited live album from emo's most beloved champions JAWBREAKER released on drummer ADAM PFAHLER's own Blackball imprint. Recorded at San Francisco's Warfield Theatre on April 30th, 1996, it's a beautiful mess of melody, angst, power, discomfort and emotion that runs the gamut of the band's storied career. Includes three songs-"Gemini," "For Esme," and one top-secret track that have never been released prior, as well a song that was not included on the LP version (currently fetching three figures in the auction scene).

i don't typically buy live albums, but as a jawbreaker fan that can't get enough, i figured i should get this one. the sound quality is really good and all the songs are just as great as on their respective albums, if not better, since the energy is there. and hey, you get a couple of unreleased songs, so why wouldn't you pick this up?

Buy this CD if you want to hear Dear You songs in their rawest form and Blake's weird between song banter. This CD really makes me hate cruel fate for making Jawbreaker break up when I was 7. Accident Prone always kind of bored me until I heard the live version on this CD, and Gemini is an incredible song.

I don't listen to this cd as much as I do Dear You or 24 Hour Revenge Therapy, but it's still a great cd. For a live recording it's pretty well constructed. Has great live version of Ashtray Monument and some chatting inbetween songs. But if you're looking for a first cd I would go with Dear You.

Jawbreaker was the most amazing band live, this is totally recommended. Almost every song is better than their album recordings, but the three unreleased songs blow them all out the water. They make you wonder how amazing their fifth record would have been. It just sucks they didn't put "Elephant" on this as another extra.

I am normally not a big fan of live albums, but this one is excellent. What do you expect from Jawbreaker? It has the three qualities that an amazing live album needs: (1)great quality recording, despite being live (2)unreleased songs--"shirt", "gemini" and "for esme" (3)witty and entertaining between song banter, Blake fuckin rules!!! A must for any fan of Jawbreaker, or music for that matter.

Wow - Im so glad that this band released this album. A classic. This live collection includes unreleased material that any Jawbreaker fan will want to get their hands on. I'm not a big fan of live stuff if I've heard the material before - but this is great.

Jawbreaker is one of the greatest bands of all time and this c.d. is fantastic. The sound quality is amazing for a live recording and it captures a really great song. The unreleased songs are awsome. This band was right on the mark in every song. Blake, Adam, and Chris are excellent musicians. Buy this c.d. now.
