ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Packaged in an environmentally friendly 5" cardboard jacket.

From Voltaire:

"For years people have told me, "your live shows are hilarious! Why don't you put the monologues you do on stage on a CD?" A few years ago I kind of tested the waters by putting together a CD that had some live tracks including monologues. That CD was sold exclusively at a couple of conventions that year (ICON and DRAGONCON). I only made a couple hundred copies. They went FAST and only increased the demand for a full-length live CD.

Well, after many years of trying to make this happen, I have FINALLY recorded a full LIVE show and I'm releasing it on CD! I was playing a show in Austin, Texas and as it happens, my good friend Marc Gunn of the Brobdignagian Bards (who played that night and organized the event) happened to have a digital recorder. I asked, "What are the chances of recording this show?"

Well, the result was an absolutely amazing recording!!! The audio quality is EXCELLENT! The audience was AMAZING! And I ALMOST didn't forget any of my lyrics! ; )

Check out the track listing on this CD! There's over one hour of music and monologues!"

A review from Liar Society:
As I've said here before, I'm not much of a fan of live albums. Still, every once and a while I hear a live album that reminds me that they're not all rubbish. Voltaire's aptly titled Live! does the trick nicely. Recorded at Austin, this album features a good selection of tracks from Voltaire's full-length albums and (of course) from his sci-fi filk excursions. It should be noted that this is Voltaire solo; no backing band here. Voltaire's voice is in good form, even when he forgets the lyrics to his own songs, and there is something to be said for a performer who can keep your attention with stripped-down versions of his material. It's the "Unplugged effect" for a nerdy, Goth crowd.

The recording is decent and the show sounds like it was a blast to be at. Of course, the "Voltaire live experience" isn't really complete without his between-song banter, which has been preserved here for posterity. (Do I really mean posterity? I don't know; maybe you won't be telling your grandkids jokes about Worf from Star Trek taking a poop.) Don't expect droll political ironies, expect jokes about sodomy and Myspace. Also, expect to laugh wildly. -Jack

Beyond the norm.
Most live albums are simply bands playing the exact songs that are on their studio albums.
Not Voltaire. Of course, being the sheer embodiment of brilliance that he is, this album offers songs you wont find on any other album, and monologues filled with his own brand of edgy humour. On top of that, there are extra passages in his the songs that aren't on his studio recording. Most of which are hilarious additions.
A lot of fun to be had in this recording. A perfect display of the unique performances put on by this musical god.

This IS Voltaire

A show you DON'T wanna miss
I have been a fan of Voltaire's music for several years, but had sadly never gotten the privilege of hearing him perform live. This album changed that. Though the flawless audio, i could hear the cheers of the crowd, the hilarious monologues of Voltaire, and even, the changes and comments on songs that can only be heard live. I recommend this album, to all fans of Voltaire, old and new, and I tell you, you are in for an amazing experience!

Great cd!
This is a great cd! I had only seen Voltaire perform a few songs when I bought this cd. I fell in love with all of his music and played it repeatedly. He's talented and hilarious. I couldn't wait to see a full show (which is also something you don't want to miss!) after listening this cd. Great cd!!
