A Great "Live" Recording From One Of The 70's Best Bands!

"Three Dog Night were one of the seventies most popular groups and though most of their songs were composed by other songwriters (Paul Williams, Hoyt Axton, Randy Newman and Nilsson to name a few), the combination of three excellent lead singers and a fantastic backup band, it's no wonder they had more hits than most bands. This concert recorded on September 12th, 1969 at The Forum in Los Angeles, is one of the best concerts this reviewer has ever heard. The songs are from Three Dog Night's first two albums such as "Heaven Is In Your Mind", "Feelin' Alright", "It's For You", "Nobody", "One", "Chest Fever", "Try A Little Tenderness", "Eli's Coming", and "Easy To Be Hard". The sound quality of this cd is good (it's obvious this is not from the original master tape) but certainly could benefit from remastering if MCA ever gets off their butts. If the Japanese can remaster the entire Three Dog Night catalog so should MCA. If you had any doubts as to how great a band Three Dog Night were then one listen to this "live" cd will quickly change your mind."

"Recorded in the acoustically deficient Los Angeles Forum in 1969, this recording still remains one of the best live performances of any group in music history. While the sound may disturb ears accustomed to the artificial tweaks of studio engineering, the music stands as it should be heard; loud, raw, and devoid of pretense. From the rollicking cover of Traffic's "Heaven is In Your Mind", to the impeccably mature and soulful fatalism of Redding's "Try a Little Tenderness", this album captures the assembly of an almost Promethean talent. Chuck Negron's vocal artistry is crystalline on "Easy to Be Hard", a smooth and anguished tenor supported by Jimmy Greenspoon's sweeping keyboard; Floyd Sneed, often the underrated drummer, drives the band unmercifully through "Nobody" -- his unconventional prowess while using both ends of the drumsticks is, sadly, one of the most overlooked talents in the history of pop music. The combined harmonies of Hutton, Negron, and Wells thrash an excellent cover of Nyro's "Eli's Coming", but it is, again, the underlaid intricacies of Greenspoon's jazz organ that spiral the vocals to their full potential. A collection of soul-based derivatives and remarkable techniques, this is an excellent album by a group caught in its prime."

"Easily one of the best live performances ever captured on record, tape or CD! This is a great album! The music and the vocals are tremendous. The energy and feel comes through and you can tell the band and the audience are having a great time. The only knock for me is that it's to short. I wish these guys would dig out the rest of the tapes, re-master the tunes and add extra songs. There has to be more to this show somewhere. When you hear it I think you will feel the same way. There are so many reissue and re-mastered CDs with extra songs these days that could have been left alone. This is one that should be enhanced. It truly deserves it."
