Perhaps the most famous of Hendrix's releases, he was at his PRIME when they recorded this version of Purple Haze. "When Jimi Hendrix walked onto the stage at Monterey he was relatively unknown in the United States. When he walked off the stage, popular music had been completely transformed. The American debut of the Jimi Hendrix Experience at Monterey isn't just the most exciting live rock concert ever recorded; it's also one of the most significant moments in the history of modern American music. Hendrix took the music world completely by storm and turned it on its head. His influence today is greater than ever, 41 years after the fact. Days after the mind-boggling "set the guitar on fire" stunt, Hendrix was a household word. The set kicks off fast and hard with Killing Floor, one wonders how Mitch Mitchell (drums) could keep up without injuring himself. Next up, Foxey Lady, soon to be a standard. The treatment of Bob Dylan's beautiful ballad, Like A Rolling Stone, is compelling and soulful. Rock Me Baby is simply beyond belief; it throws off heat like a jet engine. A hard-edged version of Hey Joe comes next; it's blues all right, but psychedelic blues. By the time Hendrix gets to Can You See Me? it's clear that he and his cronies are all settled down and solidly in the groove, this one speeds past like a bullet. The Wind Cries Mary is handled gently and carefully, it's a great song and provides a welcome break from the mayhem. Purple Haze has never sounded ruder, more demented, and incoherent - it is riveting. If you have any imagination at all, think about what this music must have sounded like to people who'd been nursed on The Platters, The Four Freshmen, and The Beach Boys. We are now completely accustomed to the influence Hendrix has had and it's easy to forget that when this was recorded what Hendrix was doing wasn't merely new, it was earth shattering. As to the closer, Wild Thing, I remember the Troggs version, sort of a frat house crowd pleaser. Hendrix takes it into the stratosphere; in many ways it's the highlight of the performance. Burning the guitar was theatrical genius, really, after you've just invaded the greatest nation on earth and conquered it in one night, what else is there to do?"

Cinammon Girl, The Needle and the Damage Done, SUGAR MOUNTAIN, After the Gold Rush, Tonight's the Night - this album is QUITE the collection of some of Young's best hits. "In addition to the mellow songs, there are some louder, electric ones that are incredible as well, with Cinnamon Girl and Like a Hurricane being good examples. This album definitely has the 'live' thing going for it, and when you hear these cuts you won't settle for the studio versions anymore - it's cool to hear Neil connect with the audience - "When I get big, I'm gonna get an electric guitar. When I get real big". I kid you not - there is not a dud on the album. It is just incredible, and capable of providing pleasure worth orders of magnitude more than its price. I actually am typing this review because I would love to think someone bought this album as a result of it and enjoyed it as much as I have over the years (in CD format now, of course!)"

A Must have for Cheap trick fans (ooh and look how cute they look!) "This is the album that broke Cheap Trick wide open in the U.S. Sure, there's a Complete Budokan version available, but 1} It's a bit pricey, and 2) unless you were at that concert in Japan, then a couple of omitted songs and a re-arranged track order is inconciquential. This version, is the version I REMEMBER, and the one most of you'll remember too. All the great songs are here, "I Want You To Want Me", "Surrender", "Clock Strikes Ten (On A Saturday Night), and more. The price is right on this version too! I can only afford so many BOX SETS, ANTHOLOGY's, and LIMITED EDITIONS. Cheap Trick Live At Budokan isn't something I want put up because I'm collecting it, it's something I want to play, and play, and play. RECOMMENDATION: Buy this version. It has been digitally remastered and has a superior sound quality. You'll remember this version track by track. The price is affordable. And best of all, you'll have FUN! " Review by Michael G.

The Who was/were/are one of my favorites. I was fortunate enough to work at their record label in the late 70's and heard them play in small rooms for promotional functions...but I gotta tell you in the 90's I paid HUGE BUCKS ($250) to see them at the LA Forum and they sounded even better than they had in those small rooms 15 years earlier. You can never tire of The Who! I think my favorite track on here is "Magic Bus"... "One of the reasons "Leeds" is prized among Who collectors is that it is one of the best-recorded; the mix is superbly equalized among all three instruments and Daltrey's vocals, and Townshend's guitar sounds especially full-bodied and wet. The performance is one of the tightest and note-perfect of that period--without losing any of its heat or raw power--and the audience is amazingly quiet and respectful, which almost gives the show a "live in the studio" quality. A comparison with "Live At The Isle Of Wight", the only other complete Moon-era performance of "Tommy", is in order: although both shows are extraordinary, "Leeds" is superior for the above reasons (although "Wight" offers arguably better versions of "Young Man Blues" and "We're Not Gonna Take It/See Me Feel Me"). " Review by Michael Topper, courtesy of Amazon.com

The track listing on this record beats all the other albums if you ask me...it's got: Sweet Jane, We're gonna have a real good time, Heroin, Waiting for The Man, Rock 'n Roll...and the list goes on. "As far as Velvet Underground live material, I had only heard Live at Max's Kansas City, which I love, so I expected more of the same from the 1969 material, fidelity wise, before I heard this. Surprise! The 1969 series is an enormous step up in quality and the performances are even better. 1969 used to be one volume and it should be still; there is no difference in the liner notes or packaging but there is now a volume 1 and volume 2. Having said this, if you must buy one of these volumes, this is the one. They are both great, but this one rocks more, has a better song selection and a longer running time. It may be blasphemy to say, but I think the versions of What Goes On and Beginning To See The Light here are better than the studio recordings. Check this out! You won't be disappointed.

I also get so happy when I hear Stevie Ray, but laced with a heavy heart due to his untimely demise. Especially because I was working for the Music Distributor and set up the conference and helicopter transportation on which he was killed. I remember the next day - the shock, the sadness, the inability to accept what had happened. I have to admit I never was fully aware of the rare talent Stevie Ray possessed and am saddened that I never saw him live - or alive - and once he passed that that was the time that I fell in love with his spirit and the music he created. A sucker for horns of all kinds, half way through the album the band is joined by a complete horn section, keyboardist, second drummer, and a female singer Angela Strehli sits in for one song. Here they play tributes to other blues artists like Guitar Slim, Albert King and Albert Collins. This album is MAGIC.

And, if you buy this, Amazon has an offer for 12 months of Rolling Stone mag for just one buck! A triple whammy! Quoting from Amazon: 5 Stars You Wanted The Best? This Is What Started It All..., November 16, 2003 By : "The Woj" (Downers Grove, IL) Having released 3 poorly produced studio records and one step away from the poor house...Kiss went into the studio to enhance (overdub) some recently recorded live performances. Kiss's first three albums contained some of the best rocks songs ever written, unfortunately the albums failed to capture the energy Kiss was able to produce on stage. Kiss's entire existence was riding on the sales of a double vinyl "live" album..... The result? Kiss's best album and arguably one of the best rock records ever released. An album that vaulted Kiss into the Pantheon of hard rock music forever. The songs recorded on Kiss's first 3 studio albums pale by comparison to the power, punch and sonic impact to the versions recorded on "Alive!". "Deuce" & "Strutter" begin the assault and there is no let up whatsoever. The best of it all? Ace Frehley's guitar. There is not one song here without a memorable solo or classic riffage. I could go on, but take my word for it...I bought this album over 25 years ago on vinyl and it still holds up to repeated listenings today in 2003. I would give this album 100 stars if I could. With the remastering, these songs have never sounded better. ADD TO CART NOW! "Ace Frehly lead guitar!"

I believe him to be perhaps one of the top 5 guitarists anywhere. Borrowing a quote from Amazon.. Anthony Trendl editor, HungarianBookstore.com Says it earns 5 stars... "Clapton plays guitar. His fingers dance across the strings in "Signe," with the kind of virtuosity fans of his rougher bluesy stuff might not get to hear. Every one of these songs has new life breathed into them. While songs like "Layla" from Clapton's 'Derek and the Dominos' days hardly lacked life, his unplugged versions seem to recreate the songs anew. For as good as the original versions are, Clapton shows, just as Bob Dylan often captures in his concerts, an old classic approached a new way can be a worthy thing. This a CD that is best enjoyed with headphones. Fancy stereo tricks aren't the element of beauty, but careful finger picking in the midst of a tight steel string guitar bring out the notes like salt on an already tasty meal. The whole thing is enhanced when the listener gets a chance to sit down and hear all of it. My personal favorites "Hey Hey" and the contemplative "Tears in Heaven," but, here at my keyboard late some evening, I'm finding "Nobody Knows When You're Down and Out" makes for great grooving as I write a few reviews. Get down low with "Walkin' Blues" and his slide guitar, and sadder still with "Malted Milk," a song that pierces the heart until it hurts. "Alberta" is the weakest of the tracks, sounding like he's trying to hard. "San Francisco Bay Blues" is a cool tune, but could've used a little better mixing. He seems to struggle grabbing a couple notes in the difficult, slightly Spanish-and jazz influenced "Old Love" but he pulls it out. The sum of it all is an album that's better with each year. It is among my favorites. I fully recommend "Unplugged" by Eric Clapton."
