Raw & Alive The Seeds In Concert may just possibly be the greatest live album that never was. Released in 1968 towards the end of the original quartet's career, the album was an attempt to capture on vinyl the frenzy these garage legends delivered at their live performances. Highly regarded by Seeds aficionados the LP contains exciting versions of band classics such as No Escape and Up In Her Room , as well as superlative new originals such as the punkoid Satisfy You: a clear return to form after the flowery Future long-player. But most are unaware that the performances were cut live in the studio, with applause added afterwards. On this deluxe edition of Raw & Alive both dubbed and undubbed versions of the album are presented for the first time,. The original idea was for a Seeds concert to be taped in front of a studio audience, but the results were deemed unsatisfactory. The second disc of our reissue features this recording, which 45 years later, sounds just fine. It also boasts rare live versions of tunes such as Fallin , A Faded Picture and the previously unheard song Hubbly Bubbly Love . As with all the Big Beat Seeds reissues, Raw & Alive is presented as a gatefold 2CD digipak and includes a hefty booklet, packed with unseen photos of the Seeds live in their mid-60s heyday. Compilation and notes by Alec Palao.

It starts with the live in the studio album without the fake crowd noise, just the band members playing almost live in the studio with Harvey Sharpe on bass. Now what’s kind of fake is that some of these live takes were multiples so it wasn’t all in one sitting. However, each take that’s there is them playing live in the studio with no overdubs. In that respect, that’s probably as close to what they’d sound like live on stage. The only issue is that when they actually played live, they had no monitors so while they’d be blasting away, the musicians would be watching each other for hand signals, plus they’d be at the mercy of whatever PA system the venue had. I can understand why they never actually tried to record a live show! A friend of mine went to see them once in Santa Barbara and he was not impressed with the sound. Then again, the audience was full of screaming girls, so it was hard to hear anyway. I can imagine what it would be like on stage with that plus no monitors.
I’ll give them some slack for what they did here.
Anyway…the second set is almost the same song set but with the crowd noise added in, copped from a Beach Boys gig. The difference is the second to last song or two were switched with something different.
The second disk is an actual live in studio gig with an audience, a set that was rejected because the band didn’t feel the vibe, or something, yet to me, it still sounded pretty decent, for the most part.
With the technicals out of the way, the songs are what count. Not only do they play their most well-known songs, but they throw in some new stuff and some unusual things. This is a great set and I found myself humming along. Not only that but I got to appreciate the musicianship even more, especially hearing Jan Savage finally let loose a little bit. Up to this point, I’d mostly felt his presence rather than heard him and on this set of CDs, I actually hear him more. It was refreshing. Then there’s Daryl who is the glue that holds the band together. His keyboards, while to some might sound repetitious at times, lay a groove that is just made for Sky’s whiny, snarly vocal rants.
Altogether, it works, whatever you want to call it. It certainly laid the foundation for punk and a whole lot more.
I had a great time listening to this CD and still have some of the tunes in my head.
I’ve also read the booklet at least three times. Great stuff!
Rock on The Seeds! Highly recommended.
