A roaring testament to Ely's vitality on stage, this set marries strong lyric-centered material with a protopunk country attitude. The alchemy is volatile, and Ely has never quite harnassed such power again. His timely association with The Clash was probably the inspiration he needed: he reworked classic material--"Me and Billy the Kid," "Letter to L.A." and "Bluebird," featuring the harmony of Butch Hancock--and squeezed the utmost energy from every song. His band--featuring Jimmy Petit, Davis McLarty, and David Grissom--was stripped down but rocked harder because of it, and Ely sang like he'd never get another chance. Believe it: This is one of the most exhilarating live albums, ever. --Roy Francis Kasten

One Of The Greatest Live Albums Ever, Seriously!!!!!

"Joe Ely's live shows during the late 80's through the 90's are somewhat of a legend. If you were lucky enough to catch him live during that time, you know what I mean. Blistering and intense, a how-to on kickin' a** live. I was lucky enough, and I have seen many shows before and since (from the Stones to Willie and all in between) and NOTHING compares to Joe Ely. This album captures that energy like few live albums ever do. This is Texas Roadhouse Rock at its finest. From country to americana to staight up rock, and ROCK IT DOES!!!!!! 'Cool Rockin Loretta' (a Texas favorite), 'She's Gotta Get To Gettin', 'Are you Listen, Lucky?', are much better live than they were on any studio recording. My favorites are BBQ and Foam, Row Of Dominoes, and Letter to LA. There is just something about this album that defies any genre or style. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED, GUARANTEED!!!!
