This live album, which is inevitably titled Genius of Live and features a performance originally documented on Live at The Clubhouse, contains a good deal of Tom Tom Club's less well known material, including five songs which originally appeared their most recent studio album, The Good the Bad and the Funky.
This means that a number of well-loved tracks from their debut, including ‘Under The Boardwalk’ and ‘On, On, On, On…’ are absent. Whether you consider this a problem will depend on your expectations of the record. Genius of Live is not a collection of the group’s best-known moments, and it should not be viewed as a ‘Greatest Hits’ record which happens to have been recorded live.
It should, however, appeal to long-time devotees who already own all their records, and casual fans who want an introduction to material not featured on their self-titled record.
