"There's millions of albums in the world under a title "live" but they usually lack the real live feel and that's why they are mostly disappointments to me... but this here's an exception! Hats off to Jerry Jeff again, he hasn't try to make this sound too polished and slick by destroying the sound of space. Yes, it first sounds quite a rough, to say, a field recording, but that's what makes it so charming... it sounds like you were there at the place listening to a Jerry Jeff gig in some lousy joint drinking beer and having fun with the band... It sounds really dynamic and rocks on through the show! I'm sure this album's never got any airplay and maybe never will, but it's a document, honest and true, just like Jerry Jeff and his trio of old mates...:-) I recommend this one to everybody who's interested to hear music just the way it's played, without too many studio effects... I've played this record to a bunch of friends and everybody, regardless of their musical tastes or if they know J.J. or not, has loved it just for its fantastic natural feeling..."
Good solid live set

"This is a good solid recording of Jerry Jeff performing live. No song here is a "definitive version", but it still makes for an enjoyable listen. The audience sing-alongs give the feel of what a Jerry Jeff concert really is like. Overall, Jerry Jeff is a great performer, and this is his most realistic live album, being that it better encompasses how fun his shows are. A great souvenir for anyone who has seen him live within the past 5 years, because any given show is probably not too different from what you hear on the album. For those who have not yet seen him, this will give them a reason."
Good, but something lacking.

"My main complaint with this CD is that it sounds like someone forgot to turn the microphones on for Freddies drums. The drums sound far off in the distance giving the CD a somewhat "hollow sound".On most Jerry Jeff albums, he records first with his band, then goes back and overdubs with guest musicians. It's a shame he didn't follow that procedure on this album, because the songs here beg for some keyboards and pedal steel. The good thing about this album is that his selection of songs is good and it is an upbeat album. I personally feel that too many songs on his more recent albums tend to be self-indulgent as he trys to showcase his "soft" side. Much in the same way that in the newer Clint Eastwood movies, Clint tries too hard to prove that he really is an actor. I lke Clint when he isn't acting. I like Jerry Jeff when he's Rockin'!"
