Comme seuls les fans vont acheter ce disque, on aurait pu s'abstenir d'inclure des morceaux disponibles aussi sur les CD's déjà disponibles, comme les nombreux extraits de 'Blank Generation' qui en fait s'écoute comme un tout ( il manque la version vinyl de "Down at the Rock'n'Roll Club" ). De même, pas de "You Gotta Lose" ni de première version de "Another World" encore moins "Blank Generation" qui est la version Sire ! Il n'y a pas la démo de "Love comes in Spurts" ni avec les Heartbreakers ni avec les Voidoids : l'album ignore aussi le single de 76 sur Ork records. Du E.P. sorti sur Shake et réédité sur Overground en CDM, il manque toujours "Don't Die" version studio & l'inédit "High Heeled Wheels", des Neon Boys ( le premier groupe avec Verlaine & Ficca ) : bravo ! "Go Now" n'est pas présent mais il y a "Oh" des Voidoids reformés en 2000 auparavant seulement téléchargeable en MP3 donc le son est meilleur. Il y a quelques extraits du 'R.I.P.' disponible facilement et de 'Destiny Street' un peu plus difficile à obtenir mais à vendre sur ce site. L'album s'achève dans la frustration avec un extrait très court d'un live avec Television.

HASH(0x97dc76c0) étoiles sur 5 The RH Story Is One of the Greatest 15 mars 2006
Par Illyoumin8or - Publié sur
Format: CD
This is a fascinating and exciting recording. A good case could be made that Richard Hell was the most interesting of all the punks, and this CD would be the chief evidence. It starts off tremendously powerfully and excitingly with the first songs Richard ever wrote and sang. These are the Neon Boys songs and Tom Verlaine wrote the music to them and plays the guitars on them. These songs are like a mixture of the Velvet Underground and the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan but with their own style. The Neon Boys could have been the greatest group of the seventies. But Richard and Tom couldn't get along. Then we have the brilliant peak of "Chinese Rocks," written by Dee Dee Ramone and Hell, and which got its first and best performance with Hell singing and bass playing and Johnny Thunders playing guitar, in the Heartbreakers in 1975. After that comes the Voidoids with four songs from the legendary ground breaking inimitable BLANK GENERATION album. Everybody knows how great that is. Robert Quine was the best guitarist ever to play rock and roll. And he's on most of the rest of this record too. Two of Hell's best songs and recordings with Quine came after BLANK, being "Time" and "Kid With the Replaceable Head." They're both unique classics. The songs from DESTINY STREET are a little grungy but they're strong too. The Dim Stars songs are the weakest, I agree with most reviewers. Their presence here plays up how Sonic Youth are more creators of audio designs, feels and moods than actual songs. They are still worthwhile though and interesting in the course of what Richard has done. The song "Oh," representing the original Richard Hell and the Voidoids in 2001 is heartbreaking, not only for how sweet it sounds, but because it's the last important thing Robert Quine did before his suicide three years afterwards. Someone called "She'll Be Coming" Iraqabilly. That's about right. How insane and creative an idea is that? Then the 21st century version of Marc Bolan's "Rip Off." Hell is a much better singer than any of the other musicians he played with, specifically Tom Verlaine and Johnny Thunders, and probably the best punk singer period, when you count everything. Which brings us back to his beginnings, a goodbye version of "Blank Generation" performed live by Hell in Television in 1974. Why aren't more people writing about SPURTS? The whole thing is real art and real rock and roll. The booklet is better than most CDs.

HASH(0x97dc7ac8) étoiles sur 5 this is my album 19 décembre 2013
Par smiley - Publié sur
Format: CD
I am Richard Hell, commenting here to explain something about this SPURTS compilation. The thrust of my message is that the original CD, released in 2005--the date given on this page is 2011, but that's just when it went to print-on-demand--was, as one commenter here has pointed out, badly flawed in its mastering, seriously sabotaging material I otherwise took real pride in. I explain what happened, and how, below. We have now fixed this problem, but THE 2005/2011 VERSION OF THE CD ON THIS PAGE remains the old, DEFECTIVE version. Warner/Rhino is in the process of replacing the inferior masters with the new 2013 re-masters at all vendors, and the mp3 versions here at Amazon--inexplicably listed as simply "The Richard Hell Story (2013 Remaster)" without the "SPURTS"--are now the beautiful correct tracks, but the jewel-boxed CD version here is still wrong. I strongly advise you, if interested in the album, to search under MP3 Music here for "Richard Hell" or "The Richard Hell Story" and download the mp3's if you want the record now. (Or click The Richard Hell Story (2013 Remaster) to see!) When it's available here at Amazon as a cd (as it will be) it will have "2013 Remaster" in the title.

What happened is I became aware a few months after the original release that it was degraded because, due to a miscommunication, all the tracks on it had been terribly limited/compressed, sucking out the dynamics and vitality of the original tracks and reducing them to a blare. The new versions are especially significant for the large number of the tracks, like the Neon Boys numbers and "The Kid With the Replaceable Head" and the DESTINY STREET and DIM STARS cuts, etc., which basically aren't available anywhere except on SPURTS.

The new masters were made this fall at Sterling Sound by Greg Calbi (the maestro of masterers, who actually mastered the BLANK GENERATION album for Sire/Warners in 1977). He was good enough to let Dim Star and sharp-eared friend Don Fleming and me sit in. We used the very best original sources, some actually higher quality than on the 2005 sessions, but the main thing was to keep the pure powerful full-range sound, sans the nasty frequency-squeezing added at the last minute in 2005.

I feel bad that all the customers of the last eight years paid for something inferior and now if they want the good stuff will have to pay again. But there's nothing I can do about it but apologize. It's my fault.

Warner/Rhino agreed to substitute the new tracks at all merchandisers, and they started the process November 19. They're now up at most of them, including iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify. So far the song titles are not individually described at these places as new masters (and there's various other scrambled misinformation, such as still listing the release date as 2005)--though at most sites the album title states "(Remastered)"--but you can be sure it's the full 21 newly remastered cuts when you see that the song "Downtown at Dawn" runs 5:59 or so; on the original Spurts it's 4:07. I'm working on trying to get the separate tracks labeled "2013 remaster" so they can't be confused with the old bad tracks, but it takes a while to get the various bureaus in motion.

As to how the original re-mastering went wrong... It was a mis-communication at the very last stage of the original remastering process done for SPURTS. We had all the tracks tweaked to spec--drawn from the best available originals, made as consistent as reasonable with each other, etc.--when I made the point to the technician that I wanted the CD, as a unit, to play at the loudest practical volume. I just meant that the tracks, as already prepared for the final pass of the mastering process, should fall as close to redline as possible so that when the manufactured CDs played they'd be at least as loud as anything else in a playlist... It was a trivial thing. But the guy misinterpreted what I was saying, and proceeded to add this excessive limiting/compressing to all the tracks, so that the volume within each track would be more consistent and every track therefore would come out louder. At this point I wasn't paying much attention, because I didn't think I needed to--everything was routine. It was only months later that I realized what had happened. A huge amount of the life of the tracks had been sucked out. I always hoped and planned to eventually fix this, but as long as the CD was in its original printing I knew it would be a problem, because the company wouldn't want to destroy those. Also it would cost me a good amount of money, not to mention time and effort. Anyway, when I saw that the CD had gone to print-on-demand early in 2013, I realized it had become practical to substitute good re-remastered versions. So that's when I contacted Rhino/Warners...

I think I've about explained it all. If you listen to the new versions, the difference really speaks for itself.

Thank you!!!!

HASH(0x97dc7b40) étoiles sur 5 Content=Great! Hell is a songscraftsman, punk or otherwise. Sound=BRICKWALLED 13 janvier 2013
Par Donald J. - Publié sur
Format: CD
As others have posted here with their reviews, Spurts: The Richard Hell Story, is a fantastic compilation of his career, solo, Neon Boys, Voidoids, etc. As is the case with any compilation, there is always a track or two that one would want to substitute, but there is only so much you can fit on 1 compact disc. Punk style aside, Hell is a song craftsman which is often overlooked. "Time" is a masterpiece that I played over and over when I had the 45rpm single. As much as I love the songs here, the mastering is awful. This music is supposed to be loud, but it was not meant to be compressed and limited so much that it is painful to listen to. So 5 amazon stars for content, 2 for sound.

HASH(0x97dc7ed0) étoiles sur 5 A decent introduction/career overview, but I have a couple issues with it 3 février 2013
Par Stargrazer - Publié sur
Format: CD
With the original Destiny Street album out of print (as well as the Dim Stars collaboration with Don Fleming, Thurston Moore, and Steve Shelley), it's great to have a concise introduction to Richard Hell's music. Hell is a major contributor -- maybe even THE major contributor -- to the earliest New York strain of punk rock. The sparkplug. But you knew that.

Gathering together tracks from early bands like The Neon Boys, Heartbreakers, and Television along with Hell's essential recordings with The Voidoids, "Spurts" also includes later material from long after Hell's mid-1980s "retirement" from music. A reformed Voidoids recorded the great one-off song "Oh" (originally released on Wayne Kramer's "Beyond Cyberpunk" compilation) and Ivan Julian contributes a weird Middle East-meets-Deep South backing track for a delightfully off-kilter Hell-bent rendition of "She'll Be Coming Around The Mountain" that makes me wonder what a universe where Richard Hell took part in the lo-fi/home recording boom of the 1990s might have been like.

The earliest music presented here has a charming Nuggets-y vibe, proto-art-punk in a sort of Stones-y mantle. The best of it, to my ears, is the Neon Boys stuff with Tom Verlaine. "Chinese Rocks," for being such a significant song, is a choreful listen -- muddy, barely listenable power rock. Too bad about that. Following this is the absolutely essential Voidoids material. Go out and buy "Blank Generation" already! Here you have Ivan Julian and Robert Quine's broken windchime guitars swerving all over a batch of fired-up, literate punk songs that have something to say, swing, and are the best recordings on this collection by a mile. Jagged jazz. Following that is the much more sprawling Dim Stars stuff, which has it's own delights, and displays Hell's willingness to throw down with the dense curtains of feedback that Fleming and Moore churn out. "Spurts" is a good survey of Hell's relatively sparse recorded output, and one that he clearly took pride in compiling.

I have to equivocally agree with one of the more critical reviews, that the mastering isn't great -- though I wouldn't call it "brickwalled," and I think that Hell tackled some pretty sonically challenged source material when assembling this compilation, but it does have what I'll call a "digital cramping" to some of the songs. And a touch too much bass (and I'm a bassist -- I love bass!) which seems to be the norm for remasters of the past ten years or so, unfortunately. I'm comparing this to the 1990 CD remaster of Blank Generation (which is a good one, I think), and obviously the Heartbreakers and Television tracks were probably not recorded with commercial release in mind. So I give them a little leeway for being somewhere between ramshackle and a shambles, sound quality-wise. All that being said, the power of the material mostly overshadows any flaws and it's good to have the harder to find stuff from Destiny Street (especially the classic songs "Time" and "The Kid With The Replaceable Head") and Dim Stars accessible.

The major reason for my middlin' star rating is the manufacturing values of the actual product. My version, at least, is fairly poorly printed (think streaky, cheap-o color copier), and poorly and unevenly cut with a sloppily folded booklet and tray insert. The materials within -- the music, the interview, the liner notes -- are all of great interest but it's hard to highly rate a product when the presentation is frankly disappointing. I wish Sire/Rhino would have exercised better quality control, or pride, or both. I don't regret my purchase, but I have a hard time heartily endorsing this product from a packaging standpoint.

This CD surprised me a bit with the amount of genuinely inspired playing. Hell may not have been the best singer in the world, but his bands had a wild energy and his lyrics are consistently good. Robert Quine's guitar playing is over the top yet fits within the 3-4 minute song. Incredible.
