5.0 out of 5 stars South at His Best, Jan. 21 2011
This review is from: Jukebox (Audio CD)
I have received this boxset from the Southside Johnny home page for a fraction of the cost that it is advertised on here. A serious piece of the Southside Johnny story. Especially Disc 5 which is a live from the Board CD. If you are looking for this set go to the homepage. $69.99 there....

5.0 out of 5 stars More of the Best!!, Oct. 25 2010
One of the best rock albums of all time was Humble Pie Rockin the Fillmore. I grew up learning guitar to that album. The new release Rockin the Winterland is probably the best way to follow up that first live release. The one distinct difference is this new release expands on the Fillmore songs and adds new ones to the mix. After all these years to hear other new live versions of the their classics as well as other songs with that rock blues feel it a wonderful discovery. The band is tight and with all live shows there is some mistakes and that raw feel. The sound is not perfect but it takes us back to the days of old and gives that edge back.

If you are a fan of rock or blues I would recommend finding both these CDs. A must have to your collection. For those Humble Pie fans rejoice!

3.0 out of 5 stars Better Live Material Out There, Oct. 25 2010
This review is from: Six Feet Down Under (Audio CD)
For the metal fans who want everything that Metallica produces then this is for you. At $25 Cdn plus tax it is steep for an 8 song EP. I have the Metallica catalogue and there are better live versions out there both in sound quality and in some cases inspired playing. Also you can skip over to their website and get downloads of their concerts over the years for a fraction of the price of this EP. Really the release was meant as a way to provide some buzz for their tour nothing more. So take it or leave it but beware if you are looking for modern material or impeccable sound quality this one is not for you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Elvis is in the Building, Feb. 22 2010
I must admit I love the music. Unfortunately the sound quality is raw and very very poor. If you want to hear the band and Elvis at their best give this a miss and buy Elvis Live at Hollywood High a very superior live snapshot of the band in their hey day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, Feb. 22 2010
This review is from: Hard Rock Live (Audio CD)
As Bad Company CDs go this is pretty much standard live. No interesting solos or straying from what they do best. This is straight ahead Bad Company. Unfortunately there are other albums that also have more of their newer material and are a bit better. A good but not great album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Live Baby Live, Feb. 22 2010
This review is from: Secret World Live (Audio CD)
This album is a great snapshot of tears for fears live. It is a good album but suffers from some interesting arrangements of their songs. I must confess though Mad World is dynamite. However, the production and sound quality is a touch lacking. If you really want the best live album produced by this band I urge you to find and buy Tears for Fears Live from Santa barbara.

3.0 out of 5 stars Babys Live, Feb. 22 2010
This review is from: Live In America (Audio CD)
A very underrated band with some great music. Unfortunately the live album which held the promise of being the final snapshot of this band fizzles not because of the band's performance but because of the poor sound and production. If you are a true fan then this is a must have. If you are looking to experience the Baby's look for their last three albums in the remastered editions.

4.0 out of 5 stars Angels Need Work, Feb. 22 2010
This review is from: Desolation Angels (Audio CD)
This album is above average. There are some great songs on it such as Rock and Roll Fantasy. Seems this was tailored more to the mainstream than some of the earlier albums. Not one of their best but not their worst either. A good pick up for those who like mainstream rock.

3.0 out of 5 stars Drama, Jan. 8 2010
This review is from: Drama (Expanded) (Audio CD)
Yes on this album seems to stick to the same formula. For true collectors only. Others should look at Close to the Edge or their first live CD.
