Don McLean - Greatest Hits Live
06/21/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"This compilation of the "master's" work would seem to be as good as it gets. However, for whatever reason(s), a number of the classic McLean songs - American Pie, for one - are presented in a rendition that is noticeably foreign to the original. I was very disappointed and would NOT recommend this album to anyone looking for the "real" Don McLean."
Very "live" live CD
A. Butterfield | UK | 07/11/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Other reviewers comment on the renditions of classic songs being a little different. Well, that's the whole point of a "live" record, surely. If you want to hear the original studio versions, buy the studio albums.This, on the other hand, gives you a moment in time, a snapshot of Don McLean at his best. And there are several songs you won't find on his studio albums. There's also a great performer-audience thing going on that's better than on his other live cut. Babylon, when he divides up the audience and gets them to sing in parts, is quite something."
