AMG REVIEW: 1986's Belief starts off with early versions of songs that would eventually appear on 1987's Teenage Spectacular LP, a lengthy original mix (with different vocals) of "Everyone But Everyone," a rough but effective demo of "The Bodycount" and the first mix of the Bob Dylan protest-era obscurity "Who Killed Davey Moore?" that was a particular favorite of R. Stevie Moore around this time. After that, it becomes a mostly instrumental wander through the mellower realms of Moore's musical imagination, with several long and engaging instrumentals interspersed with a few brief tidbits like "Cake Fat Boy," an amusing bit of studio banter preceded by Moore's mildly outraged onstage query "Who keeps buying Dark Side of the Moon?!" (Good question, that.) The twin highlights are the two-part title track, a synth-based melody interrupted by unexpected found-sound elements, and the simply lovely 10-minute guitar jam "Madison Tennessee Suite (1971)." The two-CD reissue includes nearly another full disc's worth of previously unreleased tracks from the same vintage.
