HASH(0x9547139c) out of 5 stars A must have for Alan Parsons fans! 12 Nov. 2000
By Jeffery K. Matheus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been following the music of Alan Parsons ever since his first album back the glorious 70's. Parsons has proven to be such a creative and consistant artist that I am still following his every move over 20 years later! For all those years throughout the 70's and 80's (even through his most commercially successful periods) Parsons always claimed that he was a studio artist, with no intentions of EVER playing live. However, all of that changed with the 1994 European release of "The Very Best Of Live". The album was then repackaged (with three additional studio tracks as a bonus)and released to the USA about a year later. Well, simply put, "The Very Best of Live" is just about everything that I hoped it would be! The performances of some of Parsons best rockers ("Standing On Higher Ground", "Your Gonna Get Your Fingers Burned") are emotionally-charged and energetic to the hilt! Just as his best known ballads ("Old and Wise", "Time") are given the full dreamy, atmospheric treatment of their original studio versions. The live band consists of many of Parsons usual studio cohorts (drummer Stuart Elliott, keyboardists Andrew Powell and Richard Cottle, and of course, colorful guitar-meister Ian Bairnson). On these live tracks all of the lead vocals are provided by Chris Thompson and Gary Howard. Both singers have good versitile pipes, and do a more than admirable job of covering the varied vocal styles of the many singers that have contibuted to Parsons repertoire over the years. Thompson's empassioned take on "Limelight" easily surpasses the studio version from 1985's "Stereotomy", just as the dual vocals on "Don't Answer Me" add an extra dimension to the song. Another treat for the Parsons faithful are the new studio tracks added onto the US release. "When" is a simple rocker sung by Thompson. "Take the Money and Run" is an excellent piece of modern art-rock, with some spacy keyboard textures, a dynamic arrangement that builds in intensity, and a rare vocal performance by drummer Stuart Elliott. Perhaps the best of the new studio tracks is "You're the Voice", an anthemic rocker with an outstanding lead vocal from Thompson. "You're the Voice" was to become one of the emotional highlights of Parsons 1995 tour in support of this album. I can still remember the whole audience joining in on that catchy chorus at Clowes Hall in Indianapolis...a great moment! All in all, if you are a hardcore fan of Alan Parsons, I can't imagine that you would be disappointed with this fine album. Perhaps the only disappointment for me was the complete lack of any songs from Parsons stellar 1992 disc "Try Anything Once", but the new studio tracks go a long way towards curbing that disappointment. (Parsons later said that record company politics prevented him from including some of the "Try" songs that were recorded during these live shows). Oh' well, "The Very Best of Live" is still a fine live document of a true art-rock genius!

HASH(0x955c0c48) out of 5 stars Alan Parsons: Live! 13 Aug. 2004
By Alan Caylow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For the longest time, studio wizard Alan Parsons said that he would never tour because he didn't think the technology was there to bring his studio-perfected, progressive pop/rock to the live concert stage. Of course, this was back in the 70's & 80's, when Alan fronted his studio group, the Alan Parsons Project. But come 1993, with the release of Alan's first solo album, "Try Anything Once" (his first album without the "Project" name), and Alan finally felt that he had the necessary equipment to take his music out on the road. "The Very Best Live" documents Alan's very first live concert tour, recorded in Europe in 1994. In his live band are longtime Project veterans Ian Bairnson on guitar, Stuart Elliott on drums and Andrew Powell on keyboards, as well as singers Gary Howard and Chris Thompson of Manfred Mann. Parsons & company deliver brilliant live renditions of such Project favorites as "Eye In The Sky," "Psychobabble," "Time," "Prime Time" and "Don't Answer Me." The band also go back to the very first Project album, "Tales Of Mystery And Imagination," for a burnburning double-header of "A Dream Within A Dream" and "The Raven." There's even a marvelous melding of the Project instrumentals, "Lucifer" and "Mammagamma," called "Luciferama." Alan & the band sound SO good live in concert: crisp, lean, and sharp, with the fantastic musicianship that Parsons' albums are known for, and singers Howard & Thompson both do an excellent job at the microphone. Only gripe: no live version of "Games People Play"! Oh well, I guess there just wasn't room for it.And as an added bonus, "The Very Best Live" concludes with three exclusive studio tracks, and they're all winners: "When" and "You're The Voice," both sung by Thompson, and "Take The Money And Run," featuring drummer Stuart Elliott's debut lead vocal on a Parsons album, and he does a great job. Quite simply, "The Very Best Live" is a terrific document of Alan Parsons and his superb live band, plus you get a wonderful trio of studio songs, t'boot. As a longtime fan, I'm thrilled that Alan is performing his outstanding music live for his fans at long last. May he play gigs for many years to come!

HASH(0x955c0d80) out of 5 stars A great live record 31 Jan. 2005
By Clare Alison Durina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Who would guess that Alan Parson, a studio band that never toured, would record one of the best live records of all time years after their prime. A big accomplishment considering Alan Parson would have to find singers that would compliment the original performances. His gamble payed off on this record and the results are incredible. Both singers turn in an excellent performance. Songs such as "Psychobabble" and "Eye in the Sky" completely blow the originals out of the water. The musicianship is also spectacular. The saxophone solo on "Old and Wise" is so poweful it brings tears to your eyes. One thing I really enjoy about this record is you can hear that the band is really having fun on stage and it shows. As a bonus there are three additional studio tracks. The first song "When" is mediocre but the next two songs "Take the Money and Run" and "Your'e the Voice" are powerful. I definitely recommend this to any Alan Parson fan. I have worn out my cassette to the point that it is so faded I have to turn it all the way up to hear it.
HASH(0x958bb864) out of 5 stars Alive and Well 22 July 2000
By Michael Butts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The significance of this live album is that after refusing to take his "Project" on the road for almost 20 years, Parsons put together a band and proved his music was accessible, resulting in an excellent representation of his acclaimed music.
Although the Project days had mutated into just Alan Parsons, the live concert focuses on the Project's earlier material and they are all exceptionally delivered. The addition of Chris Thompson as the main lead vocalist along with Gary Howard brings a whole new strength to the album. The inclusion of THE RAVEN from the Project's debut album also serves as a reminder of how brilliant Parsons was and how the whole thing started for Parsons. The three studio tracks are impressive especially the anthemic YOU'RE THE VOICE which would eventually be a signature song for the legendary John Farnham. Thompson whose career would include his solo hit IF YOU REMEMBER ME and a stint with Manfred Mann is in fine form on this album, especially on VOICE and the bittersweet LIMELIGHT.
In summary, a great album from the remarkable Mr. Parsons.
HASH(0x955d7630) out of 5 stars sheer professionalism - real music and real singing talent 2 April 1999
By lizswanton@keira.hotkey.net.au - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having been a Project fan for more years than I care to think about, I thought I had the entire collection until I did a double-check on Amazon. Quite frankly, I couldn't imagine that the Project sound would work live - after all, there are plenty of groups that tour regularly and don't seem to get their act together (ie that studio sound or, preferably, better). To say I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. The neighbours are sick of the album already! This is vintage Parson/Woolfson genius - and you can sing along! I would urge all Project fans to add it to their collections, and if you're not yet a convert, this is worth trying as a sampler - you soon will be. I hope Alan and Eric are still creating and recording - I'm certainly keen to build my collection further. And what's the chance of them heading to Australia?? I've started saving already!
