The second in the series of Lost Tapes features a previously unreleased concert, recorded at UEA in Norwich in October 1998, which saw Motorhead in venomous form. Limited edition pressed on blue translucent vinyl.

Although this is an enjoyable live document for established fans and certainly not lacking in content (90 minutes, yay!), I found it to be a notch below the first Löst Tapes release, primarily in terms of audio quality. Motörhead here is supporting their Snake Bite Love album by playing a gig at the University of East Anglia in in Norwich, and I have zero complaints about the performance itself, as Lemmy and the gang sound great and enthusiastic. The recording is on the rough side of a standard bootleg though, maybe marginally above average if you're feeling especially generous. I was also bummed out by the very noticeable fade-out and fade-in towards the very beginning of "Overnight Sensation" (tape flip, I'm guessin'), though it's just a small bump in the road and nothing too bad. Diehards should be fine with overlooking the less than pristine quality in order to check out this particular era of the band, and it is a typically rowdy and fierce set. I thought Vol. 1 had more fun between-song stage banter but there's some decent moments in that vein here too, including one part where the band confronts someone in the crowd for throwing a drink on stage. All in all, it's not an essential pickup but I'm always down for some live Lemmy, so I'm glad this is out there now.
