Classic Box Set Review: Motörhead | Stone Deaf Forever!

“Play it loud, OK?” commandeth Lemmy. So it shall be written. So it shall be done.

This came out in 2003 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):

 


DISCS: Five.

TRACKS: 99.

YEARS: 1975 – 2002.

LOWDOWN: Old joke: Who would win a fight between Lemmy from Motörhead and God? Give up? It’s a trick question: Lemmy is God. If you don’t get it, the new retrospective Stone Deaf Forever! will enlighten you — and turn you into a born-again Motörhead freak. Although it’s the umpteenth anthology devoted to the rubble-throated singer-bassist and his rotating cast of cronies, Stone Deaf Forever! may be the definitive document, with nearly 100 blistering tracks that cut a wide swath through the veteran speed-metal outfit’s long and sordid career. “Play it loud, OK?” commandeth Lemmy in the liner notes. So it shall be written. So it shall be done.

NEW STUFF: Nearly 20 previously unreleased live tracks culled from British radio shows.

EYE CANDY: A 60-page book stuffed with pictures, magazine articles, recording data and the gospel of Lemmy; a gig poster.

DAMAGE: About $75.
