First released in 1969 this album was years ahead of its time. From the blistering opening track Ramblin Rose to the esquisite Kick Out the Jams this album is a must for anyone with the slightest interest in 'Rock' music. Powerful, raw and rockin are just a few words which sum up a master piece of an album.
Don't buy anything else until this is in your collection. You won't be disppointed as the intensity of the music puts the 'new wave' gendre in the shade. Yes its raw but that's the beauty of the LP. It has n't been over produced and must rate as one of the best Live LP's of all time!!

Where do I start. This album is undoubtedly the best live album ever recorded. For most bands, live albums are at best dodgy regurgitations of good studio recordings in a live setting. Not so with the Motor City 5. Kick Out The Jams is an astounding record of high calibre heavy, guitar driven rock, laced with lashing of freak-out psychedelia. Considering the recording was made in the late 1960's the sound quality is better than most studio workouts today. There is real depth and weight to the sound, the guitars of Fred Sonic Smith and Wayne Kramer in particular resonate like huge machines grinding over the proceedings and Rob Tyner's vocals positively soar with soulful agony. The only thing wrong with this record is the fact that it isn't long enough and that Black To Comm didn't feature in the tracklisting. Aside from that, this is liek nothing else you've ever heard, especially if you consider the time it was recorded and released; I would have loved to have been there at The Electric Ballroom when it was recorded. As an aside, if you don't already know, the album was banned from many retail outlets upon it's release because of an expletive that directly follows the title of this review when Rob Tyner introduces the second track. The expletive was subsequently replaced with an overdubbed "Brothers and Sisters", but this copy should be the restored version complete with bad language. Without doubt a thundering performance of the highest quality, it makes Hendrix look like George Formby! Buy it now!

Less primal than The Stooges debut, but as it was recorded in a live gig, it has a certain energy that just can't be matched by studio albums. It is amazingly intense, wild, dirty and even barbaric at times, when the whole band chants together like a bunch of football fans fronting a rock'n'roll band.
The intro for the album must be one of the most exhilarating starts ever, with the audience clapping, drumming and shouting in anticipation for the band. You can hear in this album where The New York Dolls got their sound from, where punk got its' attitude, and songs like 'Ramblin' Rose' and 'Kick Out the Jams' pretty much sum up the whole Garage-Rock revival of 2002/03 ­ with The Hives especially sounding like Iggy Pop fronting MC5.
There are plenty of great moments here, and even though The Garage-Rock sound dominates, other genres and influences do creep in. 'Borderline' has folky elements that recall CSN&Y, and Led Zepplelin, 'Motor City Is Burning' is a heavy and dirty blues, 'Starship' features a Middle-Eastern oriental vocal improvisation, that actually predates Robert Plant's similar exercises. And actually nearly every moment in this record will remind you of something that it predated.
If this album was released Eight years later, songs like 'Kick Out The Jams' and 'Rocket Reducer No.62' would have been leading Punk hits. Released Thirty-Three years later, they would have been even bigger. Ahead of its time and truly brave ­- a live debut must have meant commercial suicide, but that's what also makes it unique to this day.
Fresher than next week's NME's cover buffoons!

I remember when this album was first released. It was totally different from the boring mainstream of pop then and today this is still the case. Classic 3/4 guitar heavy rock & roll. This is probably their best release and the best versions of the songs on the album. Later live albums are of very patchy audio quality.This is how they sounded (on a good day!) live on stage.

This is where it all began: punk, hardcore, thrash, grunge: pretty much all 'heavy' music. What a phenomenal album. The sound is perfect: every lick is audible. From the Introduction by Brother J.C. Crawford to the last scream of feedback on 'Starship', this is forty or so minutes of pure rock and roll mayhem. The influence of this band is unbelieveable, spanning over thirty years, inspiring artists as different as The Dead Kennedy's and Jeff Buckley (checkout Live at L'Olympia by the latter for a truly rockin' version of 'Kick out the Jams').
This was the revolution. So f*ckin break the town till they bring you down, and rip this joint apart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
