For Chicago-style slide-guitar blues on the jagged edge, Hound Dog Taylor is your man... This set of live tunes gives you top quality sound in a live setting like no other HD Taylor CD. This CD is wild, driving and filled with the kind of SMASH!BANG! fun this band pumped out in a live setting. Ragged & Right top-shelf entertainment like no other... Well worth any amount you have to pay to get it

Captures the Raucous Rawness
D. Kover | San Francisco, CA | 03/06/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The most famous Hound Dog Taylor quote was: "When I die, they'll say: 'He couldn't play sh*t, but he sure made it sound good.'" This is a man who understands his appeal. Taylor played a beat-up guitar, and he cranked on the thing, playing distorted, screeching notes. But god, it DID sound good. And as the quote implies, he had the personality to go with the raucous, raw music that he played. Which is why this album is so good. It's live, so you can hear the sound imperfections, the screaming crowd, and Taylor's off-kilter banter and sense of humor. And that's probably the perfect way to listen to Taylor. To put it all another way: He plays a version of "She'll Be Coming 'round the Mountain" that makes you want to get up and dance."
Hound Dog rocks da house!!!!!!!!!

"Hound Dog's searing slide guitar and vocals tear you to the quick with a depth and passion unequalled nowadays. This rocks!!"
