4.0 out of 5 stars Great Live CD 20 April 2014
By BP
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Whilst some unauthorised copies may exist, "Made In Switzerland" was produced by founder member Gilbert Bridges and officially released. It consists of recordings from a 1989 concert in Switzerland. Sadly neglected in U.K., the band performs a fine set of largely blues influenced rock with some longer tracks venturing to the fringes of prog rock. Although there are also influences from soul/Tamla, it would be very wrong to describe them just as a soul band (as I have seen in some reviews.) . Best tracks in my opinion are Big Brother, Born to Wander, I'm Losing You, Get Ready, Celebrate, plus a fine bluesy cover of Tobacco Road. An excellent CD - nearly as good as their "In Concert" album, as original member Pete Rivera had left the band by 1989, but definitely worth a listen if you like bluesy rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get it, but get "Rare Earth In Concert" first 18 Jan 2007
By Lawyer4Free - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If this 1989 live cd is the only Rare Earth live cd/album/cassette that you ever hear, you'll love it. If you have heard the mesmerizing "Rare Earth In Concert," you'll want to give that one 6 stars and this one 4 stars.

Standing on its own, this cd rocks, and the track selection is cool. If you are looking for a captivating concert "feel," you won't get that here. At times, you'll wonder whether this is a studio or live cd. Nevertheless, you get great tracks and over 73 minutes of music.

The band introduces "Get Ready" by saying that it "was" the longest song ever recorded. True. Then came a Led Zepp huge version of Dazed And Confused and The Allman Bros kicking out a pantload of "Instant Live" cds with some songs topping 40 minutes long. I did wonder why Rare Earth would brag about "Get Ready" which had been done (yes, on Rare Earth In Concert) over 23 minutes long, and then only make it a bit over 10 minutes long here. (Actually, the music stops under 10 minutes, then there is filler.)

This version of "Celebrate" is listed as 7:52, but it is much less music than that. It digresses into boring intros to members of the band.

This version of "I Know I'm Losing You" is over 12 minutes long. Cool, but it's over 14 minutes long on REIC.

The inclusion of the Motown hit "Smiling Faces" is fun, and over 7 minutes long.

"Born To Wander" is here over 7 minutes long, and they blend in some Motown lines from Papa Was A Rolling Stone.

Overall, this cd is more blues/jazz (notably more sax), while REIC is more blues/rock (notably more captivating guitar). REIC pulls you in and sails along seemlessly. This cd is more choppy and has the feel of the band doing it "one more time." Also missing here is the band-to-audience interaction. Hey, when the same lead singer isn't leading the way, you can't help but be different.

Sorry for continuing to compare this little sibling to its "big brother," but if you've hear REIC, you know what I mean. If you freak out by seeing the price of the few available copies of REIC, ask me for a $10 way to solve that problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare Earth Two Originals 7 July 2011
By B Bu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
THIS CD SOUNDS GREAT SO IF YOU DON'T HAVE THESE TWO LPS AND WANT THEM ON CD. THIS IS FOR YOU. I PICKED THIS UP AT A CD STORE. IT'S ON A SILVER CD AND YOU DON'T HEAR POPS OR TICKS. THIS COULD BE RECORDED OFF TAPE. THATS HOW GOOD IT SOUNDS. IF IT'S A BOOTLEG GREAT JOB. DON'T LISTEN TO THAT OTHER REVIEW ABOUT IT BEING A BOOTLEG WHO GIVES A CRAP. IT SOUNDS BETTER THAN HALF THE ORIGINAL CDS OUT THERE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great concert you shouldn't miss.... 23 Aug 2011
By Don F. Mccollough - Published on Amazon.com

"Made in Switzerland" is(as mentioned in an earlier review) recorded and mixed very well. Ray Monette shines on this one and is one of my favorite guitarists from the past.....IMHO, his guitar and Pete's drums/vocals were the highlights of Rare Earth. Although Pete's not with this version of Rare Earth, the group represents his playing and vocals very well. "Born to Wander" includes some killer reverb/echo vocals making it sound a good as i've ever heard it sound. All band members were spot on this evening and should be extremely proud of this disc. I wish it were a little more affordable in CD form but the download sounds excellent as well and the $8.99 download price is more than worth it. I cannot recommend this title enough and i look forward to seeing them Sept. 9th or 10th at the Argosy Casino in Alton, Illinois!!!
