CD Reviews

Probably THE greatest live album ever recorded!!

"It's very rare when live recordings of songs are better than the original studio recordings, but that's the case here. (curiously, that was the case with "Strangers In The Night" too). Every track smokes; with Schenker and FIVE others (!!) playing for their lives.Except, maybe, for "Assault Attack", I was never satisfied the mix of any MSG album from the early '80s. None of the songs here are held back my bad production. And the faster pace (coming naturally when most bands perform live) is welcome. The songs, the class, the polish, the excitement......just breathtaking!!! This is a must-own! If you're new to MSG, start here. This album's worth $200!!Notes: Derek St. Holmes sings lead vocals on "I'm Gonna Make You Mine"; with Gary Barden singing background/lead vocals. "Red Sky at Night" called "Red Sky." "Walk the Stage" called "Rock Will Never Die." Two other people join MSG on-stage for "Doctor Doctor"......This concert is available on DVD as well (even better than this live CD; with the same mix!!)."

"This is a Japanese import. The show was recorded (and professionally filmed) in London at the Hammersmith Odeon in October 1983. All of the songs are performed with a 20-something gusto. Schenker's fingers are nimble & fast. His notes are stinging & piercing. Barden's right on the money with the vocals--as usual. The rest of the band are tip-top as well. This is a very good show and DEFINITELY worth owning. Ex-Ted Nugent vocalist Derek St. Holmes provides excellent backing vocals and sings the lead vocals for I'm Gonna Make You Mine. He also plays rhythm guitar. He was quite a nice touch to the MSG team (for the little while that he was with them). For me the highlights of this album are the two tracks from Assault Attack: Rock You To The Ground, and Desert Song. They are lovely melodies that sound better here than on the studio album. Much better. Then again, all the songs on this album are highlights; each one is a unique performance showcasing Schenker back in his heyday."

"Nice to see this remastered and re released. I had this on LP when I was a kid and now it sounds better than ever on CD. This is a nice follow up to 'One Night At Budokan' and the hight of Schenker's career in the 80's. Not only is Gary Barden on with vocals, Derek St. John also belts out some lyrics as well - not sure why he wasn't ever asked to sing leads on a full time basis because he has a powerful voice and range.

I recently found this on DVD, bootleg of course, and was quite pleased with it as well."
