STARCASTLE: Live At Last

"I never had the pleasure of seeing this band live. What a treat to finally have a quality recorded concert CD. It's really amazing to hear them reproduce their complex, highly produced songs almost to perfection in a live setting. Particular praise most go to their flawless rendition of "Lady of the Lake" and the total treat of hearing a previously unreleased track "Breath and Thunder". Terry Luttrell sings suprisingly well on stage. Gary Strater's bass playing is excellent as always. The whole group cooks. And I'm sure this wasn't the best show they ever did. My enthusiasm at having something "new" from Starcastle moves me to give the 5 Stars. I'd downgrade this to a 4 on the basis of poor packaging. There are only short liner notes that are somewhat reserved in their praise of the band. There are no details given of where and when the show was recorded. There are no new photos of the band or what was (by all accounts) their spectacular stageshow. Other than that, this is a definite MUST for every true blue Starcastle fan."
Live albums show the heart of a band

"When I listened to this Starcastle CD I was not sure what I would find and was elated to discover that this band is better live than in the studio. While the studio CDs are excellent, the live CD shows the real heart and soul of the band"
An Interesting Discovery

"As a Yes fan, I try to keep my eyes'n'ears open to discoverbands influenced by Yes. Mostly, the result is disappointing - onceyou find bands like this, something is missing. But Starcastle comes closer. It's more rocking and also more electronic (1970's synths) than Yes, and what's probably the most important thing is that Terry Lutrell has a very light voice like Jon Anderson, though not as skilled and bright as Jon Anderson's. »Concert Classics - Volume 5« is a pretty good album. The highlights are »Can't Think Twice« and »Lady Of The Lake«. The reason why I "only" rate the album to 3 stars is that I can't help comparing Starcastle to Yes, and they do not reach the unique level of Yes!"
