3 stars As we know the first live album that Elektra released was "Absolutely Live" which is really great because of the performance of the whole Celebration of the Lizard as the main act. This time they recorded another live album called "Alive , she cried" which was taken by a concert in New York in 1970, it has only 7 songs and the albumīs lenght is over 35 minutes, as you can imagine this is a good live album, but not as good as Absolutely Live, though.

The songs taken from this concert are: "Gloria" an excellent Van Morrison cover which actually i believe is better known with The Doorsī version. "Light my Fire", a very nice interpretation of the song, is the longest song of the album and probably the best, not only for being a single or a well known song, actually it is pretty good performanced. "You Make me Real" is a short but nice song, probably an unknown song with nothing outstanding to add. "Texas Radio and the Big Beat" remember "the Wasp"? well this is only a little piece of that song, another o Jimīs poems. "Love Me Two Times" is the other single or hit whatever you call it, that you will find here, great song and excellent vocal and guitar playing. "Little red Rooster" is a kind of surprise in the album, excellent interpretation of this bluesy song with as the credits say, John Sebastian as a guest musician in the harmonica, this is the secong longer song here, pretty good. "Moonight Drive" is another classic song, i ike it very much and it is good to see it as the final song of this nice live album.

Well, this live album doesnīt have enough elements to be highly recommended, i would recommend it only for fans or that people who want to discover another live performance of the band, the album is good for me , but definitely non - essential, so 3 stars.
