"If you love the early days of "Getting To The Point" or even the "Lion's Share" version of this band, look elsewhere....Simmonds still has the heart, but the group's performance here is thin and often as amateurish as a common bar band. If you want some compelling live Savoy Brown, get a copy of "A Step Furthur" (my favorite) or "Blue Matter", each of which has a side of live material."
Savoy brown rocks!

"74 minutes of Savoy Brown "the kings of British boogie" They start off rocking and keep on the rest of the way. Old and new songs all sound great. Only thing I did'nt like was a little too much talking after the greatest hits medly. Buy this cd if you like Savoy Brown, it rocks!"
Are we listening to the same CD?

"Great live set that finds Kim Simmonds and Co. in expert form. Kim scorches some amplifier tubes, delivering some of his best live recorded lead work. Despite some stage banter that could have been edited out of the final master, Walker sounds great as well. These days, Savoy Brown ARE a bar band. However, since that label is oviously being used elsewhere as a derogative, I must say that no one is playing sub-par on this gig. All told, this CD represents a tight, well-played set of classic Brit Blues from one of the ONLY classic Brit Blues bands still performing. This release recalls their late 60's and early 70's albums and is better played than their groundbreakingingly imaginative but relatively primal and less-tutored earliest work. If you love UK blues, this is bloody good stuff."
