Not the best representation of BC's live sound.

""Hotter Than Hell! Live" was recorded in 1988 during Barren Cross' "Atomic Arena" tour. Several songs recorded during these same concert(s) which weren't included here were added as bonus tracks to the 1990 re-issue of "Rock for the King." I've seen BC live during the "State of Control" tour in 1989, and I felt that show gave a much better representation of the band's live sound than "Hotter Than Hell" does. Some tracks here which are enjoyable, however, include "Going Nowhere," "King of Kings," "In the Eye of the Fire" and "King Jesus & Blues Jam." I was also very impressed with the live performance of "Killers of the Unborn." I would have liked to have seen some of the better live tracks from the RFTK re-issue used in place of some of the weaker tracks on HTH. I especially would have liked to have seen "Living Dead," "He Loves You" & "Heaven or Nothing" included on this CD. "Hotter Than Hell" is not a bad live album, but for a truly GREAT Christian metal/hard rock album, I would suggest Bloodgood's "Alive in America" & "Shakin' the World" volumes, REZ's "Twenty Years" or Stryper's "7 Weeks Live in America" instead."
Finally! Took me forever to find this!

"I bought this tape when it was released in '94. At the time, my mom was going thru a chrisian phase, so that's the music i got. i didn't really like it at first; i was about 7 or 8, and i was more used to the airy stylings of madonna and the j. geils band. they are HARD CORE. imagianary music (i know i misspelled that, & i don't give a damn) is the best song on the album, and dying day is pretty catchy as well. i would recommend this, simply because it is unique. if you ever come across this lp in a used cd store, i'd advise u to buy it - it's a rare record, well worth at least one listen."
