Have to agree totally with the previous reviews. This is simply a stunning live album and its absence from the CD format for such a long time is not only mystifying, it's downright outrageous. To be at a Warren Zevon show really must have been a truly unforgettable experience. What a performer. From just listening to this CD I get the impression that this was Entertainment with a capital E. There is so much blood and guts in here that it almost wears you out trying to take it all in.
As to be expected Rhino have delivered a wonderful reissue. The sound is stunning in its clarity but what hits you is the rawness of the live sound which has not been smoothed over by modern remastering. Turn it up and you really feel as if you're in the audience of that very show. The energy hits you like a ton of bricks.
