"This is something us Rollerfans have been waiting on. It makes us feel like we were at this concert. Also brings back alot of good memories of when we did meet and seen them in concert. If you are a Roller fan or not you will enjoy this great CD. As for me being a fan for over 25 years it is the best ever!I hope the Rollers will reunited once again for us fans........"
REMEMBERing The BCR's...

"A fan of the band as a teenager, I never got to see the Bay City Rollers perform live, and this newly released cd only makes me wish harder that I had! Okay, they did play some bubble gum,(nothing wrong with that!!)and okay, in hindsight, I can admit they walked around looking like they were waiting for a flood... But they were a talented live band, no matter what the critics claimed. So unpack your scrapbooks, brush the dust out of your old tartan scarf, and hit "play" for a nostalgic dance down memory lane! A fun, energetic, enjoyable performance, I recommend this cd to anybody who ever loved the BCR's, and especially to those who thought they didn't!"
A Critic's Eye-Opener

"The critics slammed them in the 70s, and since, for being untalented and accused them of not playing their own intruments. They couldn't have been more wrong. This live CD, with only 4 of the original band members, has incredible sound. There can be no further doubt about their musical skill, and 8 of the 15 songs were written by the band's Faulkner-Wood team. In my opinion, the BCR sound was like no other band -in their heydey, where "they outsold everyone but 'The Beatles' and Elvis in merchandising...and [sold] out every live show that they performed" and yet today. Their music was original, and closer to real rock than most pop acts. This is why they stood out, along with the incredibly gorgeous voices of Les McKeown and Eric Faulkner, and the latter's superb guitar skills. Joined by Stuart Wood's bass and guitar and Derek Longmuir's driving drum beat, they were the perfect team. The live CD highlights their raw talent like none of the studio-produced LPs ever did.Forget the image you may have in your mind, and listen closely to the lyrics and nuances of the music. This CD is a must-have for anyone seriously into music, and for those who simply enjoy good, fun rock!"
