What the techies at Popular Hifi had to say!
The Vital Poster
|Curiously the CD is missing Nadir's Big Chance, which was the encore, and Urban is split with "Killer - section (Smith)" in the middle.|

Review in Sounds
Review in Melody Maker
Review in Freshair
|In an interview Dave Jackson had the following to say about Vital:
"I was working as a driver when I got a call from them to guest at two Marquee gigs to be recorded as a live album, by this time they had brought in Charles Dickie on cello. The finished album, Vital, is a personal disaster for me, I can't bear to hear it. Usually I would have wanted 4 tracks of the 24 track mobile they set up, 2 because of the stereo nature of my saxophone set-up and two for the effects pedal etc. on each channel.
