I have always been a fan of Guns N' Roses having seen them 2 years running at Wembley on the Illusion tours. So when a 'live' version of Sweet Child Of Mine suddenly came on Planet Rock my ears immediatly pricked up and this version just blew me away. At first I thought it was G n' R because Myles Kennedy does sound a little bit like Axle Rose but not as high or squeeky. When Nikki Horne said it was Slash & 'Made In Stoke' from earlier on in the year I went straight on line on bought the album. And so far I have not been disappointed. The sound quality for a 'live' album is excellent you can hear the singer and all the instruments clearly and the crowed atmosphere is good also. I have found I have liked the non G n'R songs also because I had lost track of Slash an was unfamiliar with his own stuff. But one thing I have found is that I liked G n' R because of Slash and not Axle Rose. So if any of you are G n' R fans buy this album I sure you will love it too.

The career of one Saul Hudson, raised during his early years in Stoke, has enjoyed a renaissance in the past decade, first with the excellent Velvet Revolver and more recently through various collaborations and solo work, including a very respectable studio album recorded with a few of his heroes 2 years ago. This live album is one of the best I've heard in the hard rock genre for some time. It's got a great sound mix as befitting commercial releases these days but it also has the right amount of spontaneous authenticity as all good live albums should.

Of course, it helps to have one of the finest vocalists around, Myles Kennedy, fronting up your band and whose vocal power and dexterity is on full display here. It should be noted that he masters the various Guns'n'Roses anthems, especially "Rocket Queen" and "Sweet Child O' Mine", a lot better than Axl Rose these days.

The highlight is the stunning lead guitar playing throughout from a man who prides himself on his virtuosity and all round genius with a Gibson. His stand-alone solo on disc two, which includes an improvisation on the theme from The Godfather, is simply astounding.

This CD is a must buy for anyone who wants to hear some diamond hard live rock'n'roll with a contemporary feel.

I was never a great follower of GNR, although, of course, I did like Sweet Child O'Mine and Paradise City. I did, however, like the Snakepit and Velvet Revolver phases of Slash's output - so last year when he put out the solo effort "SLASH" I was astounded by the album even though the appearance of several vocalists could so easily have made it a difficult album to take in but no, it was indeed quite a stunner.
So now, what we have here is a fabulous double CD album documenting Slash's career highlights live at his homecoming to Stoke on Trent earlier this year with Myles Kennedy handling the vocal department, and does it rock? AND THEN SOME!
If you like any of the guises Slash has added his unmistakable guitar playing to, you will love this because if there is one thing at which Slash excells, and that is the live show (in this case an especially poignant live show).ALL the showstoppers are here from Slash's career including the aforementioned GNR pinnacles and also his towering solo loosely modelled around the Godfather theme - and Mr Kennedy puts in a powerful vocal too (and has already been mentioned by the previous reviewer his handling of the GNR numbers are better than handled by a certain Mr Rose, of late!) - the only quibbles are the non-inclusion of the "Beautiful Dangerous" track from the solo album (I know Fergie did the amazing vocals, but I reckon Mr Kennedy would have made a superb stab at it too!), oh and the bass response generally, is not hefty enough (but that is correctable!) - but then in the face of this gem of an album, I am really being too pedantic!
Should you buy this? Well, if you don't you will really have missed out on a real GEM of an album that'll keep you rocking for quite some time to come - just buy it and feel the noise!!

What can I say about this cd except it is one of the best live cd's I have ever listened to and I have heard a lot its just pure rock and roll by a very tight band the production is also really good you can actually hear what the rhythm guitarist is playing this would appeal to anybody who likes red hot electric guitar oh and guns n roses

music 5*. The guy, 5*. The DVD 5*. Ten * for the fact i accidentally ordered vinyl, not CD. To hold such lovely packaging, 3 disc vinyl gatefold sleeve, with lush photos and words i can actually read, (with my glasses on) I had a tear in my eye in my old eye, I can tell you. Whatever format, a must buy, from the guy from Stoke!

Finally, the legend returns to Stoke.

I pity those who would question a 5 star rating for some of the greatest rock created

This is & will go on to be one of the classic live albums of all time, as a massive WHO fan it pains me to say this but "Made In Stoke" is up there with "Live At Leeds", Slash with Myles Kennedy just hits a sweet spot, if they continue together as is rumored I can see some great stuff coming out, this album also underlines who was the creative & driving force behind GNR!!!, I've also got this on "Blu-Ray" it's well hot n rocking ( turn the lights down, crank up the home cinema system & you're there ), brilliant!!.

I saw this on Sky the other night and was blown away by it. How come I've missed this over the past coupla years lol ? !!

Just buy it cos if you are here you must like Slash, Myles Kennedy is brill as lead singer and for me almost better than Axl . Checkout Alter Bridge too if you like Myles Kennedy, another terrific rock band. Listening to this on my iphone with Beats headphones, production is superb from the autorip download.

Terrific stuff !

An awesome live concert recorded in a 1500 capacity venue the set list contains several Guns 'N' Roses classics as well as songs that have become classics in their own right during Slash's solo career.The musicians he assembled for this tour together have created a stonking live chemistry that a live audience can only surrender to and enjoy the atmosphere and the vibe of what is before them.Personal favourites from this performance include Dr Alibi and Slither.This recording is almost as good as actually being there.
Myle Kennedy is an amazing singer and front man and Todd Dammit Kerns is awesome on Dr Alibi.This band is well worth catching live they deliver!!!

This is an amazing live cd from our favorite cat in the hat slash. He smashes guns n roses songs, velvet revolver, snakepit and his solo stuff. myles kennedy is a great addition to his band, reaching all of axles high roaring vocals to scott weilands swagger. The band is superb and so is the recording. You get all of the atmosphere from slashes loved home crown, stoke... he really was made in stoke.
