This 4 x CD live release features Thunder recorded at 2 shows during the "The Magnificent Seventh” tour in 2005.
 
It’s called Rough & Ready, to contrast the difference in audio quality between the two shows (one was recorded straight off the mixing desk, the other is a proper multi-track recording). Whilst the audio quality varies, the band’s performance does not…
 
It’s worth mentioning that several songs from TMS made their live debut on this tour, and two of them (Monkey See Monkey Do & The Gods Of Love) were seldom played afterwards, though listening to them on here, it’s hard to understand why.
 
4 x CD Digipack, with loads of tiny live photos all over it.
 
CD 1 & 2 – Rough
Recorded live straight off the mixing desk at Club Citta, Kawasaki, Japan on July 3rd 2005.
Ben sprinkled some magic fairy dust reverb on the whole thing during mastering, but there are no overdubs, no mix tweaks, nothing. 
It’s a bootleg in all but name, that’s why the audience is so quiet..
 
CD 3 & 4 – Ready
Recorded using the Thunder Mobile at Shepherds Bush Empire, London UK on March 10th 2005.
Mixed & mastered by Ben at Chez Bez Studios, London. 
Once again there are no overdubs, no fix ups etc.
