"I purchased this CD after seeing here on Amazon. Since it had no track listing I had no idea what to expect. I had hoped it would be a collection of the 12" single versions of Benatar's hits. It was not. It is a collection of live versions of some of her work from her first three albums. Not that bad, but very misleading since most of the songs are not extended at all. It would have helped is there was listing of the tracks so that Amazon buyers would know what they were getting."
A WONDERFUL SLICE OF BENATAR LIVE!

"While this cd could have been longer, it is worth it to hear the live renditions of songs made popular by Pat and her crack band. Though the cd is under 50 mins., it's a nice ride, culminating with a 10:16 minute version of In The Heat Of The Night that is worth the price of admission alone. I'm not familiar with any of their live albums other than this one, but plan on checking their other ones out. Personally, because of the price, I like to get these versions first, and then go on from there. I have Extended Versions of The Fabulous Thunderbirds and Humble Pie, and along with Benatar, all 3 have quality live recordings and can not complain about them at all."
Some great live performances - some not so great

"I am not a huge fan of Pat's but I do love some of her hits. This cd was a hit & miss for me, but the songs I bought it for were great and the "live" element made them even more enjoyable.
I wish we could get another female like Pat Benetar in our music world, but the original will be the best."
Live and it Rocks

"This is collection of 10 well recorded live tracks released by BMG Special Products. Released in 2000, it does not state any dates or locations for the performances, but it appears to include performances from more than one evening. The extended cut of "In The Heat of the Night" is the best version of this song I have ever heard. I have several "Extended Versions" CDs from BMG, and they always pick excellent live recordings. I only wish they would give some detail on WHEN and WHERE these tracks were recorded."
