Great performance, great recording, great disc

"I just have to echo the listener below--this is an outstanding live recording, and Missing Persons makes it worth our while with inspired, concise renditions of many of the band's best songs.The previously unreleased "Action Reaction" is a gem of a studio track (also sounding great!) that finds the band at the funnest and punkiest that I've heard it. Bassist Patrick O'Hearn and drummer Terry Bozzio are the standouts here, for me at least, and both are enjoying highly (artistically) successful solo careers making music very different from each other and from this!If you're at all a fan of Missing Persons, though, you owe it to yourself to check this out, especially now that it's available domestically for far less than I paid for my Japanese version!"
Early MP with a bonus track!

"This CD certainly captures the early 80's sound by (imo) the best of the genre (at least talent-wise) and one of the great live acts. The pure enthusiasm and energy of the circa 1981 Missing Persons can't be denied. If you are truly an MP fan, this is a must-have! I only saw them twice and this CD brought it all back. The additional track, "Action-Reaction" also smokes ala "Mental Hop Scotch", but harder. As usual, I was totally "amped" after listening to it and couldn't put it away for a month!"

"This record takes you back to the bands "early days"
Hearing them live on this cd reminds me of how good they really were.
I remember seeing the band at "Summers on the Beach" on the Fort Lauderdale strip in 1981.
They were as good as this cd.
