COCKNEY REJECTS: Greatest Hits Vol. 3: CD

The third of their “classic” original releases, this one features the band playing a live set in front of a crowd of invited guests. Although swell as a live document of a band poised to take that great leap into bad metal land, and the sound is impeccable, I’ve always found it to be a bit lackluster in the performance department. Still, personal preferences aside, it doesn’t suck; many of their hits are represented here, and the completists will be pleased as punch to have this available again, especially considering that the fine folks at Captain Oi have seen fit to include a couple of unreleased cuts from the same show as an added bonus, including a nice version of “In the Underworld.”
