"25 years have passed since this double live performance from the Netherlands premier rock band, still going strong today. Great guitar & bass soloing with my favorite Radar Love version. Remaster sounds fine, except for 2 serious glitches in the recording process: a 1 second "drop-out" at 1:06 on track 2 and a "scratch" in the mix at 8:45 on track 8. Overall, my favorite live Golden Earring ahead of "Something Heavy Going Down" and "Last Blast Of The Century"."
Great Live Golden Earring

"LIVE is a great concert recording from Golden Earring from right about the time when they were starting to merge Outlaws-style guitar jamming with Zeppelin heaviness and Floyd-like space rock. I have had a cassette of this album since 1994, and I love it. Get this, THE CONTINUING STORY OF RADAR LOVE, and SOMETHING HEAVY GOING DOWN all at once."
Not for Everyone

"Golden Earring Live is not for everyone. If you are a die hard Earring fan, you will definitly enjoy this album. It is a honest, on the spot live recording, despite the fact that there is a extra guitar part all the way thru the recording that is not Barry Hay. Whomever did the job, however, was very capable. Barry's vocals get a bit lost in some parts of the recording, but there are many moments of sheer rock-n-roll magic that make it worth while. George Kooymans does a wonderful job of reproducing some very difficult harmony vocals with Barry. All in all, I would have to recommend it to all earring fans EXCEPT those who expect a perfect and polished product. This is a kick ass live rock-n-roll recording, warts and all."
