"this features some of the better cuts from OUT HERE, a late 1969 love album, along with 4 live tracks. the best live song is probably the version of stand out, but the highlight may very well be product of the times, a rather funky number not available anywhere else-it's only on studio/live. perhaps the best song from the studio side of this album is gather 'round , presented here in a slightly abbreviated version. while this material is good, it is really for completists only. and the studio tracks can be heard in their entirety on OUT HERE. this isn't necessarily a good thing, as one song, doggone, is actually better in its edited form-a long and lugubrious drum solo has been edited out, this certainly improves the song, which is a nice melodious ditty."
A more streamlined version of Out Here... with some extras!

"In my review of Four Sail, I said that Out Here would be a good companion to that album. Now that I think of it, Studio/Live might be a better choice. It edits the cumbersome double-album Out Here down to a more listenable form, and by adding the live tracks, actually creates a very solid recording. The live version here of "Stand Out" is the best I've heard and this may be the only place to find the excellent "Product of the Times" -- unless you want to hunt down the hard-to-find, unreleased Arthur Lee solo album Black Beauty. The songs "Doggone" and "Love is More Than Words" sound particularly better in their edited down forms (minus overlong drum and guitar solos, respectively). It might have been better had the short song "Abalone" been included here, but that's a minor quibble. I highly recommend this CD to any fan of Arthur Lee and Love."
