I've been a DeVille fan since he first broke in the late 70s and have seen him countless times in NYC -- including the date that this album is recorded at. At first, I wasn't really taken with the idea of a live album of his, because its release seemed like a throw-away, "let's just get this out there" kind of effort. I knew it was out for a long time, but the preceeding review prompted me to order it and check it out. Simply put, I was totally blown away by this thing. Only in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that a live recording would capture Willy's gut-wrenching vocals and both the subtle nuance and raw power of the band. I saw these shows and they were incredible experiences. The CD captures it all -- perfectly. Great performances, very good sound quality. It ranks up there with his very best studio albums and is, quite possibly, his finest release ever. This thing kicks like you couldn't imagine and even if you're not a big fan of Willy's, check it out if you like ballsy deliveries and a Grade-A band. Simply fabulous.
