Van der Graaf Generator - Maida Vale

7/10

This is a compilation of four BBC sessions consisting of two songs each. You get 1 song from The Least We Can Do, 1 from Pawn Hearts, 2 from Godbluff, 2 from Still Life, and 2 from World Record. This is kind of an unnecessary release, as most of the songs really don't have anything on the studio versions. Oh, there are a few differences here and there, but they don't really make the songs any better or worse. Plus, there's nothing from H to He! I understand that they were trying to promote their latest albums at the time, but I really would've liked to hear Killer or House With No Door. But while this disc doesn't add a lot that's new, the songs are still good; however, they're not good enough to make this release essential.
