This cd represents the original lineup at their peak.A perfect live blues record.
This is quite possibly the greatest live blues/boogie album

"Wow, does this album bring back memories. I grew up in Springfield, VA during the late 70's & early 80's and used to go see The Nighthawks all over the Beltway area (Maryland, Virginia, DC). I was at two of the four shows when this album was recorded at The Bayou in Georgetown. To this day, those two shows are still the best live music I've ever seen. No band was tighter or had more energy than the 'Hawks, not even Thorogood. I was so bummed when Thackery left the band in '86. It ended a musical era in my life.
This album captures the top blues/boogie band of the day in their absolute prime. Do yourself a favor and check it out."
One Of The Best CDs Ever-This Is Exactly What They Were Like

"Anyone who saw these guys in their prime in the early '80s (when this set was recorded) knows what they could do - and this CD shows it. One of the best live boogie/blues/rock bands ever, puts out a collection without one weak song. Mark Wenner is unsurpassed on harmonicas and Jimmy Thackery's guitar is high energy all the way. While almost all their other CDs are a mix of some great and some OK tracks, this one is great all the way through. Crank this up and picture yourself in a small smoke filled club like the old "Double Door" in Charlotte, with these guys so close that Thackery would actually walk out into the audience for some songs as they shook the walls. If you don't find yourself stompin' your foot to this CD, you're older than I am (maybe dead)."
