5.0 out of 5 stars The Faith Healer 3 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Without a doubt this is the greatest Live Rock band ever. Alex and the boys kept me sane during my teenage years in Glasgow.
This recording shows them at their peak. It's a pity we have had to wait 28 years for it to be released. However this is one band that's music cannot be classified or shoved into a time frame. Listening to it now, it could have been recorded just last night.
Missing from the track listing above is 'The Boston Tea Party', which is sandwiched between 'Vambo' and 'Dance to your Daddy'.
'Framed', which along with 'Faith Healer' were SAHB anthems, has on this recording got Alex playing Hitler. If you are offended then you havn't heard it.
Alex was Sensational and the band still are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational!...just as you might suspect. 24 Sep 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I saw SAHB on this tour in '76 when they played a couple of nights at the Edinburgh Odeon, they were totally fantastic then and this recording really does convey a sense of the real live SAHB as they were with all the drama, energy, and sheer artistry that entailed. Zal's playing on his trademark SG is both raw and sublime, Alex's different version of Framed, and the band's enforced improvisation sometimes as they had to cope without Hugh McKenna on keyboards, adds a greater sense of drama to the recording. The accompanying notes for each of the tracks by Chris Glen and Ted McKenna are honest, humorous, and indispensible. As the booklet introduction points out, this is arguably better than the 'Live' album from the '75 tour recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon and I would be hard pressed to disagree.
If you are a SAHB fan, this is a total gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any true SAHB fan! 18 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My recent reinfatuation with SAHB has lead to buying pretty much everything I can find from the back catalogue. This is a must for any fan, made strangely fascinating by the absence of Hugh mcKenna due to sickness. A true record of a band at their peak, reading the sleeve notes though makes you realise just how precarious a live set can be! Brilliant

4.0 out of 5 stars I woz there! 22 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, I really bought this because I realised I was at the concert it was recorded at, but the recording is decent, it has a good live vibe (ie not going for perfection), and to be honest there's only one song I really regret not being on there (should've put Next instead of Dance to Your Daddy). Of all the Alex compilations this is the one I'm glad I got. Bought for a touch of nostalgia but I'm playing it loads more than I expected. Favourite track from this set - Isobel Goudie. But only just.

4.0 out of 5 stars SAHB Rock !!!!! 17 April 2010
Format:MP3 Download
It's great that these live offerings are available now but why oh why has it taken the best part of 30 years for them to be available for sale.
OK you could argue that the sound mix and reproduction is not up to today's standards but essentially what you get here is what SAHB were all about - a good old no nonsense rock band who had quite a different mix of songs and styles that came across great to a live audience.
I saw them twice around this time (mid 70's) and they always delivered a show as opposed to a 100% accurate reproduction of their studio album tracks. This album demonstrates this admirably and without the recollections of the live shows in mind it's difficult to put the 2 together. Now if they could dig up video footage of these concerts ??!! That really would be heaven.

For old SAHB rockers out there just buy this and reminisce :-)
