"This is a great live CD, especially Roger McGuinn;s Thunderbyrds
he was still trying to get his solo career off the ground at this time in 1977 and owed tons of money for his solo albums
that were not moving out of the record stores - he finally hit rock bottom in 1979 two years later, You can hear the
passion in his performance here - It rocks man = This is my favorite Live CD - because of McGuinn's hard rockin live show
he was trying to survive in a out of control nose dive
The 1970's was not very kind to 60's Rock Icons at this time
the business ate them up and spit them out with over produced
studio productions and costs with no promotions.
He had a heavy headwind against him with the likes of other artists albums: Frampton Comes Alive, Rumors, Saterday Night Fever, Breakfest in America, and many others with sales in the millions.
He was the best on this BBC show it really Rocks man"
