(4 out of 5 stars)

"A terrific live doucment of the original 10cc line up the "King Biscuit Flower Hour" features material from the band's first two albums (they performed material from their just completed third album "The Original Soundtrack" and one track from the pending album "How Dare You" but they have been left off here which is a pity). The recording is extremely good pulled from the mastertapes prepared for broadcast.

My only compliant (and it is a minor one)is the fact that the three songs from the next two albums weren't included in this set (and that the entire concert wasn't included here either). It's a pity because there aren't an offical live documents aside form this one featuring material from their first four albums.

This terrific live album proves that 10cc could deliver. Eric Stewart was once asked if 10cc could have been as big as Queen. He stated that he felt (humbly I might add) that they reached the level of success they deserved; I humbly disagree while the original four piece line up could be idiocycratic bordering on the avant garde at times (plenty of Zappa/Captain Beefheart influence in the Godley/Creme team nicely balanced out by the more mainstream songwriting instincts of the Stewart/Gouldman team), their music could be as accessible as Queen's. It was a matter of talent, image and timing that prevented them from building on the success of "I'm Not in Love", "The Things We Do For Love" and "Dreadlock Holiday" (Stewart's car accident took some of the wind out of the band's sails).

Highly recommended.--A poster made a good point here which I've corrected--I initially put down that this was in support of the "The Original Soundtrack" tour but, in fact, it was for the band's second album "Sheet Music" although they had some of the material for their third and fourth albums either recorded or written."
I Was At This Show...And It Was Great!

"Strangely, this CD only has songs from the first two 10cc albums, ignoring the more-popular-but-uneven The Original Soundtrack. Nevertheless the songs on here are played with amazing dexterity and authority, especially for a band that most people see as a twee studio group. Like the review title says, I was at this show and it totally rocked. There's no way a "real" 10cc fan (e.g. someone into them before "I'm Not In Love") is going to be disappointed by this record."
Who'd of thought!

"I never got to see them live, just knew about them as clever, versatile pop tunesmiths.It wasn't until I got this disc that I learned how good they were in concert. They rock. They really do.You could quibble about the less-than-perfect recording quality but there is more than enough great stuff to compensate. Amazing, listener-pleasing versions of Baron Samedi and Rubber Bullets; odd announcements ("We're just gonna jam for a while" or "That's a true story" after Old Wild Men).Get the disc then write to whoever is in charge up there and get them to release more of 10cc live."
