The Passion of the early Police
by Tom Carroll
I have long been a fan of the Police. I have listened to every album and I enjoy almost every song. The album I enjoy most is The Police Live. I enjoy this album for 2 reasons:
- Disc 1 is infused with passion and angst.
- Disc 2 provides a point of comparison that makes the passion on disc 1 so obvious.
Disc 2 shows how the band had lost its fire and passion at the end. This comparison is hard to make on studio albums, but is made simple with the 2 disc set. So buy the album and do the following:
- Listen to both discs in order.
- Hide disc 2 and hope never to hear it again
- Enjoy Disc 1 and the passion of the Police as it should be remembered
