"Recorded live at the Palladium in Hollywood on August 10, 1983. Main reason I bought this CD here recently is because I saw guitarist Rick Medlocke with Lynyrd Skynyrd a few summers ago. Maybe not the best King Biscuit release out there, but still decent. Tunes here I got the most out of were "Rattlesnake Rock 'N Roller", their two hits "Train Train" and "Highway Song", Uriah Heep's "Easy Living", "Fly Away" (great guitar work) as well as "Living In The City". Has an interview where Medlocke discusses subjects like touring with Nugent and the Scorpions, playing large European festivals with AC/DC and Iron Maiden and how well Blackfoot had functioned as a band. Line-up: Rick Medlocke: slide guitar & vocals, Charlie Hargrett-guitar, Ken Hensley (forgot all about how he was with Blackfoot)-hammond organ, Greg T. Walker-bass & vocals and Jackson Spires-drums & backing vocals. Nothing too special, like I said but alright."
Poor quality CD from a once truly great band.

"Blackfoot is my favorite southern rock band. I had visions of a great live album matching the caliper of the several live cuts on the compliation "Rattlesnake Rock and Roll". Quite frankly, they should have left this one in the vault. The sound quality is terrible and the performance overall is just not their best. I wish they'd have released "Siogo" or "Highway Song" instead, that would be a treasure trove for die-hard fans."
If your a fan,buy it........

"If your a Blackfoot/Rickey Medlocke fan I'd have to say it's worth owning this CD. The 20 minute interview alone will get you off,especially if you're into Southern rock lore.From a sound & performance standpoint however, you'll be a little let down. Like the other guys have said, get "Highway song live" to hear Blackfoot in their prime."
