If you only know the Kinks for the hits (as I did) this album is a good introduction to some of their latter work in the 80's. The live album is well produced and has a good vibe to it. I've had live albums in the past where the band has sounded very lackluster and you wonder why they bothered. However here Ray and Dave are on fine form and the gig takes on a punkier/hard rock feel as they blast their way through songs.

It's certainly worth owning for gems like National Health, Pressure and definitely a song for our times Low Budget (it could have been written today). It's another example of what a brilliant lyricist Ray Davies is. Not forgetting his brother who's guitar skills are much underrated these days.

As a live album it's perhaps not going to stand up with Live at Leeds or Live and Dangerous but as a showcase of an amazing and often overlooked band on the road it's a classic.

I renewed interest in the Kinks after my youngest son came home with their greatest hits album. Thanks for that Jonas. I went looking for CD copies of vinyl albums I owned about 30 years ago and found this copy of their late seventies live album I bought together with the Misfits album. Still after all these years the live atmosphere sounds great. Ray Davies is a good shape.

By the late 70's The Kinks had totally fallen out of favour with both the British music critics and general public - no hit singles, no hit albums and disastrous concert reviews. In America it was just the opposite, with albums like 'Misfits' and 'Low Budget' making the US top 20. In 1979 Ray Davies decided to totally strip down the Kinks sound - back to the primal, raw rock they'd had with 'You Really Got Me' in the 60's - undertake a large US stadium tour and record this live album.

It is utterly brilliant and rocks like hell. There's very little of the fey, pastoral side of the band on show here. Apart from a storming 'You Really...', there's an ass-kicking 'All Day And All Of The Night' plus three 'punked-up' numbers in the shape of 'David Watts', 'Stop Your Sobbing' and Ray's riposte to Tom Robinson via 'Prince Of Punks'. Six tracks from the previous year's 'Low Budget' album appear - emphasising its importance in the US - and the record kicks off with an opening tease of a very short 'You Really ..' melding into a pummeling version of 'The Hard Way', whose studio counterpart can be found on the mid-70's 'Schoolboys In Disgrace' album.

There's some wonderful audience participation for that old stalwart 'Lola' , plus the best guitar of the set , from Dave Davies, on the spirited '20th Century Man'. This whole album is woefully underrated, and definitely belongs up there with the acknowledged great live sets, such as 'Live At Leeds' by The Who. Buy it, and knock your socks off!
