"Before this,I didn't know that much about the band except they were much of a club favorite in the Los Angeles area from 1986-88.The group apparently featured guitarist Paul Gilbert before he had joined Mr.Big.They released three worthy lp's in the timespan I just mentioned.After that,several compilation and live discs happened to surface,like this one.Personally,I know people that really might enjoy 'Live...' more than I did.It's a decent live recording,but then I ALWAYS enjoy a live CD.A couple of the tunes that I thought carried their own are "On The Loose","Heart Of A Lion","Give It To Me" and their Kiss cover of "Detroit Rock City".Simply an under appreciated hard rock band that never got a big break.Might appeal to fans of Joe Satriani,Alcatrazz and possibly Yngwie.Come on,take a chance."

"If you were stranded on a desert island this is what you want. Poison Eyes is blistering. These boys are tighter than a drum. Paul,Scott,Bruce,John and Jeff just simply get it done. Hard Hitting and slicing rock is what it's all about. A definite must. Proves that this is the all time best collection of musicians imagineable. Scott Travis is no doubt the best rock drummer walking the planet. Can't wait till the new RacerX comes out in Jan/Feb. it's called Technical Difficulties. Stay tuned."
