 Notes & Reviews
 
This is leon at his early seventies best. The man is no longer with us but I recomend this to anyone who loves live albums.
- David Chamberlin, 04/02/2018, USA

It must have been mind-blowing to have been there. Leon Russell was at his best during this period and he makes every track into a performance. He doesn't try to copy his album tracks, he re-interprets them.
- Colin Burke, 11/12/2009, Australia

Check out that first jam. As described in the jacket, it's a barn burner, as is the whole album.
- Klintm, 05/20/2002, USA

Amazing, high-energy rock&roll-gospel-soul-twangy stew that was Leon's mode at the time. A great band and a real early-70s period piece (meant in a good way for those who really dig that period).
- Frank J Lepkowski, 07/10/2001, USA

Simply the best live album of its era.
- Paul W Lusher, 05/14/2001

A great feel-good album.
- Dale Mincey, 02/16/2001, USA
