"I totally disagree with the Moore-bashing. In my opinion, his albums with Samson were by far the best. The first Samson albums were a little rough sounding, and Bruce was still developing his vocal style when he was with the band. I had the Shock Tactics album when it came out. Although the production had gotten better and my friends and I enjoyed it, we didn't care much for "Bruce Bruce", as he called himself then. His singing improved tremendously when he joined Maiden, but Nicky Moore was a much better singer with Samson.
Most of the songs on this album came from Before the Storm, which is hard to find on cd, and Don't Get Mad Get Even, which is not available on cd. So this live album is the best chance to get these songs on cd. Before the Storm in particular is an awesome album--it's the best Samson album and an absolutely essential classic for any collector of NWOBHM. I have it on cd from Molten Metal USA, and I highly recommend getting it if you can. But especially if you can't get Before the Storm, you should definitely have this live cd if you consider yourself a fan of NWOBHM. It's good stuff. The sound quality is top notch, all the songs are excellent, the performances are outstanding, and Samson's guitar sounds great. It gives a great sampling of Samson from the Nicky Moore era, which is the best Samson, in my opinion. Even fans who prefer earlier Samson should enjoy this album. But I'm biased--because I can't imagine how any fan of classic rock could not like it.
This is killer!

"These guys need to move to America,start on some gigs and make a huge comeback.Paul Samson's one of the greatest guitarists still alive.I totally dig Vice Versa.That is progressive metal at it's best.Samson are easily the most underrated hard rock band to ever walk the earth."
