Petar Ticinovic | Vancouver, British Columbia Canada | 01/14/2003

"Not only is the performance scorching, but it has the crispest sound you could ask for.Do not hesitate to buy this."

"This is a live album par excellence... in actuality, it's more of a gem than most of its owners might realize, since it's the Heartbreakers before they got signed to Track Records and released the equally classic 'LAMF'. As such, the performance rivals the studio album in intensity, but also in terms of sound--the production is almost flawless.It's missing 'Pirate Love', and 'One-Track Mind', and the between-song banter is a bit much, but from start to finish, it's classic rock and roll the likes of which we'll never see again.If you're looking for vastly different versions of 'Chinese Rocks', 'Do You Love Me', and 'All By Myself', you may be disappointed here. But if you have the chance, pick it up. You won't be displeased."
Over The Top!!

"Hard to think of a live R'n'R album that compares with this for sheer energy. Recorded at London's Speakeasy club in March 1977, it captures Johnny and the boys at the height of their powers. From the opening "Chinese Rocks," which explodes out the gate like a runaway train, you get all the buzz-saw guitar riffs, sloppy vocals, and manic drumming that defined Thunders' brand of stripped-down, no B.S. rock'n'roll. The between-song abuse Johnny hurls at the "boring" kids in the crowd for not wanting to dance just adds fuel to the fire. If you don't love D.T.K., then you don't love rock'n'roll."
