"Unlike some of the other live albums that came out of the mid-to-late '70s NYC punk scene, this is as good or better than a lot of the Dead Boys' studio material. What sets this apart from most other live records (see Sid Vicious) is the fact that Stiv & Co manage to maintain the sneering ferocity and dynamism of their live show, without loosing too much of the sound quality in the process, (A live punk album from which you can actually discern the lyrics -- imagine that).
As an added bonus, most of the DB's best material is well represented. Two versions of "Ain't Nothin' To Do," "Caught With The Meat In Your Mouth" & "Sonic Reducer" can be found on this 2 CD set. "All This & More" appears three times, as does the DB's cover of the Stooges classic "Search & Destroy."
So, in summation, if you can find it, this would be a great album to pick up if you are either new to the Dead Boys, or an old fan looking for a supplement to their studio albums. The only thing missing is a cover of "I Wanna Be Your Dog," or "Chinese Rocks.""
Dead Boys Raw Live and Dirty

"The Dead Boys were and are seminal fixtures in the development of American Punk. Their stage shows were intense, loud and bloody. This collection is a must have for the Dead Boys affecienado. However, if you've never heard these guys, then do yourself a favor and pick up "Young Loud and Snotty". "All This and More" is for the rabid D.B. fan only. It's very raw, and the boys were half in the bag during the show: the playing ranges from brilliant to incoherent, and if pure rawness ain't your cup of tea then stick to the studio releases. If you can ever find a copy of their second L.P. "We Have Come for Your Children" grab it. Not as earsplitting as "Young, Loud and Snotty" but brilliant nonetheless."

"The first live band I ever saw. They opened for the Ramones in New Jersey in 1978, and they stole the show from Johnny, Joey, Dee Dee and Tommy. On this box-set you get all their classic songs, and you can marvel at Cheetah Chrome's extraordinary guitar playing - check out the heartbreakingly sad guitar solo on Can't Hurt Me Anymore!!! A must buy, people!!"
