5.0 out of 5 stars Saxon live and kicking 29 May 2013
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
14 years after the first Eagle Has Landed disc,this album almost slipped out apologetically,no fanfare,no press parties,almost unnoticed,a travesty really as its an excellent disc.

With 12 of the 17 tracks coming from the 3 previous studio albums,a whopping 6 from SOLID BALL OF ROCK' and 3 apiece from the other two,it was apparent there was no sitting on their laurels for the lads.

Throw in the epics 'The Eagle Has Landed' and 'Crusader' and by the time the show closes with 'Denim and Leather' and Wheels of Steel/Demolition Alleyway' you'll be begging for more.

Despite losing Graham Oliver,the band forged on with Doug Scarrat as his replacement,its a pretty seamless change,Scarrat fitted in perfectly.

Sound wise its a bit rough and ready,sounds more like a club gig with audience suspiciously turned up,nevertheless the raw excitement from the German fans flows from the speakers,a superb release.

Recently reissued/remastered i havent heard the new version so i cant comment as to wether the sound has improved,which ever edition you pick, you wont be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars MAGNIFIC ! 11 Jan 2000
By Paulo (paulovol@convex.com.br) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is certainly the best Saxon live material. It was recorded in 1995 during the Dogs of War tour. It incorporates the new guitarrist Doug Scarrat, which plays (very well) the guitar parts originally played by Graham Oliver, although in my pessoal opinion I prefer the style of Graham Oliver. The band is very well tuned, with powerfull guitars. The quality of this recording is amazing ! In my opinion, the high point of this double live recording are the tracks "Crusader" (With a magnific guitar solo by Paul Quinn), "Ain't gonna take it" (With an amazing and powerfull guitar riff), "The great white buffalo'' and "The eagle has landed"(With a powerfull guitar riff too). There are too a great guitar solo by Paul Quinn on the introduction of the track "Princess of the night", a guitar solo by Doug Scarrat on the introduction of the track "Wheels of steel", and a bass solo of Nibbs Carter on the introduction of "Crash Dive". All Saxon fan must have this recording, pure heavy metal !

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Live Heavy metal Albums You'll Ever Hear! 18 July 2000
By The Ripper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The first Saxon song I ever heard was "747(Strangers in the Night)". I loved it. Here, in the US, Saxon are very hard to find. I was overwhelmed with joy when i saw this cd in the heavy metal section of the store called "record town". I bought the cd, and when I put it on, I knew that it was worth all the 20 dollars I paid for it. This is the only live album I've heard that comes close to Judas Piest's 1979 live album Unleashed in the East. Every metal fan should have this cd(2 cd's), cause it rocks from start to finish! You won't be dissapointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Saxon Rules! 10 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
My first encouter with Saxon was 1982 when I listened to "Heavy Metal Thunder" from the album "Strong Arm of The Law." I remember that I was so impressed with their power and articulateness. Saxon still carry their power and HM spirit. Each piece on this CD is just great, but a real gem on this CD is "Denim and Leather" featuring Yngwie Malmsteen. The guilar solo battle of Denim and Leather among a virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen, a talented veteran Paul Quinn, and a new face (not now, but at that time) Doug Scarrat is nothing but awesome! Saxon is my favorite NWOBHM band and has been one of the most popular HM bands in my home country (Japan) for a long time. I just don't understand why Saxon didn't become popular in the U.S. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars back to what they do best 19 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
after flirting with pop rock in the eighties, it's good to hear a new release by saxon that takes them back to the driving energetic style that put them in the same class as iron maiden and other big names in british metal. they always have been able to crunch with the best of 'em and this new release is a prime example of just that. if you like classic saxon, then you're gonna love this offering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously, just about my favorite live album. 10 April 2011
By John C. P. Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Not sure what it is... this is a "low" point in their career, sales-wise. But I'll be dipped if they don't sound hungry and passionate.

They left in mistakes, cracked notes - all to the benefit of this collection. Great tones, unique song selection (Dogs of War tour) making even questionable tracks from Forever Free and Solid Ball of Rock sound like classics.

Give it a whirl... It's much better than the 3rd volume, which seems to be merely an effort to get songs recorded live that they don't usually play. It's decent, but this is the goods.

Long live Saxon.
