5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! July 1 2004
Format:Audio CD
As a long time Circle Jerks fan and an occasional correspondant with Keith Morris, I'm embarrassed to say that of all the CJ's albums available, this one I waited until last week to get. Oops. But I must say, I'm glad I did. Gig is an outstanding example of just why I love this band and a nice refresher course covering all but their 1995 album. I was never fortunate enough to see them live, yet, so, the amazing part is how tight this band was on stage. Keith, Zander, Keith C. and Greg don't miss a note. Even better, the sound recording is top notch. Excellent car jammin' album. The Circle Jerks were tied for first when it came to west coast hardcore punk in the early 80's and this is why. The only gripe I have with the release is that the liner notes tell us where the shows were recorded but not when. My guess is around 1990 or 1991, but dang it, I want specifics!

5.0 out of 5 stars All the best songs live Sept. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is the closest the Circle Jerks ever came to releasing a greatest hits album. All of their best songs played live at breakneck speed. 22 songs in 40 minutes. If you like circle jerks, buy this amazing live album. The recording quality is amazing, they sound almost the same as they do on their albums. The best songs on here are Beat me Senseless, Wild In the streets, I and I, and I Don't. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars almost like being at their show Dec 2 1999
Format:Audio CD
absolutely a must for the discerning (aging?) punker...i especially enjoy the ad libs from Mr. Morris between songs- he's a genuine entertainer. ...the album brought me back to a show of theirs in 1986 here in Chicago. buy it! (then tape it and give copies to all your wonderful friends)

5.0 out of 5 stars ESSENTIAL PUNK ROCK July 27 2006
By Hans Haneberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is THE essential recording by the Circle Jerks. (I have all of their other albums as well.)

As a 30 year old Circle Jerks fan, I find that this is a mix of their best material from their early albums. I have seen them in concert 3 times and I have found that this is a great representation of their shows.

I have bought the gig CD twice because one of my friends stole my first copy.

It's truly unfortunate how underrated the Circle Jerks have become over the years. Too many have dismissed them for being too poppy, not being hardcore enough or as being too childish. I find that most people who describe them that way only have a cursory knowledge of one of the greatest punk bands ever.

The lyrics are smart, the music makes sense and most importantly (and which rarely happens now days) you can hear the band having FUN on stage.

How can you go wrong with 22 songs for 16 bucks?

4.0 out of 5 stars Very solid July 29 2007
By g0)z111a - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very solid disc with great sound quality and great songs. I was pining badly for some live Circle Jerks when I bought this, and the disc definitely delivers. Listening to this isn't quite as energetic an experience as actually being there, but it's certainly better than nothing. There are a few songs I recall them playing pretty regularly live that I wish were on this album, but oh well. This CD is a fantastic document of one of the best live punk bands that I ever had the good fortune of seeing. The Jerks never disappointed me live.
