The positives are a great girl rock band belting out the songs as only they can. Been a fan since 1976 and most of us have had this on Bootleg, in one format or another, for years but it's nice to have it officially released i guess. There is also a Cleveland gig from 1977 recorded at the same venue (The Agora Ballroom) in great sound quality, presumably recorded by a radio station. Let's hope that also gets an official release soon.
The negatives are, as most reviewers have stated, that this concert is from 1976 NOT 1979. God, how could they get that wrong!!! As far as i'm aware The Runaways last tour was in 1978 anyway!! And the other grumble is of course the band line-up on the cover is totally the wrong one for this gig. This concert is the "classic" 5 girl Runaway line-up of Cherie, Lita, Joan, Sandy and Jackie. It just beggars belief how these people can get simple facts like these wrong when releasing discs!!!
Have to add though that "The Runaways Live In Japan" is a better option if you're only after one Runaways Live CD....Although even that could be released in an extended format surely. Other songs were recorded on that Tour but not included on the vinyl release, so let's have em put out on CD to make a more comprehensive Runaways gig!!!

Nice to see this great band get a live release, but is it really that hard for the record label to get the year right! This set is from 1976, not 1979.

Like a previous reviewer has said, this release has the wrong date of the recording. For years this was a bootleg; 'Live at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland' in 1976 NOT 1979. The artwork also features the wrong lineup of the band when this album was recorded. The Runaways on the cover should be Cherie Currie, Jackie Fox, Joan Jett, Sandy West & Lita Ford. The one it features just now is only of the band as a four piece, with Vicki Blue on bass.

It's nice to see this album finally getting an (official?) release for a great band but disappointed that they've made so many errors with it.

Cover photo is wrong
Cherie singing on this CD
I don't mind cover photo that performance is great
But I can't feel live that can't hear audiences

Sound quality is not bad
But sometimes right sound (Lita's guitar) alomost can't hear

It is worth to buy If you are Runaways fan
