Typical...release a live album from the worst phase of their career. A live album from the original line up or the reunion would have been much more welcome.

Face facts: Mick hates every single fan he's ever had. From the day he was born he's been plotting to betray us all.

It occurred to me the other day, that a period of time roughly equal to that in which BAD 2 were in existence, has passed since the BAD reunion.

I'm not sure how much of a say B.A.D. (II) had in that release if any. It just appeared a few years back with no fanfare and as mentioned just a direct copy of the previously issued DVD/Video. The CD packging had little to no effort in it's artwork and I remember Wolter remarking the cover stated "Big Audio Dynamite 11" instead of "II". I doubt Mick had any hand in this release. It's on the Retroworld label and I've never heard of it before.

The DVD, while good to have, is not very exciting. I've seen them plenty of times this video is not very representative. The audio is good but nothing compared to the 2 shows that TB shared a while ago.

Don't knock Big Audio Dynamite 11. There are certainly people on here who'd have kept the faith.

The 12 were better. Shame they stopped at 13.

Been listening through Tighten Up again (Marky's mix of course), and just what a great album. I say it so much but really, its my favorite BAD album. I would've loved to have heard more from this 88 tour as well. St. Georges and the Assembly Rooms shows are maybe two of the best BAD shows I've heard. I also rewatched an interview with Mick yesterday from 88 and he was talking about how they had plans to tour all around Europe and do this whole tour based around France and all that. I actually got a little mad thinking about this, just because of how sad it was he got sick so soon into the tour. I'm sure those Europe gigs would've been amazing.

I remember when Mick got ill. My friend Roy and I were planning on seeing BAD at the T&C Club (my fave venue at the time). Roy came into work and told me he had just heard that Mick had died. I couldn't believe it thank fuck the rumour was wrong and Mick survived the pneumonia virus.

It was not only sad that those dates never happened, but also that the band split so soon aftet Mick's recovery.

Damn, it must've been crushing to hear, rumor or not. It makes sense sadly of that going around, considering just how actually close he was to dying.

I know its been talked about too, but the fact that he was able to pull off what he did with reunion tour vocal wise was amazing. I never thought he would be able to sing stuff like V Thirteen or E=MC2 (higher octave) again. He sounded really damn good on that whole tour.
