3 stars UK's 1979 live release is most notable for the inclusion of two previously unreleased songs, but of high quality: the title cut and "As long as you want me here", which are performed well even if the sound quality is thin. I am sure that the big fans of this latter day supergroup were delighted to have this as a testament to the band's live prowess. It also contains spirited versions of "In the Dead of Night" and "Nothing to Lose". But variety was not UK's strong suit, and beats that might be considered distinctive and innovative are repeated on unrelated songs, which makes me wonder just exactly how freely the creative juices were flowing during the band's brief and shapeshifting run. Night after Night Live could serve as your only UK album if you can be happy with the raw effect, since the highlights of both studio albums are mostly here but, even so, you have to contend with the mediocrity of "Alaska", "Time to Kill", and "Caesar's Palace Blues". Mildly recommended to those who want a sampling of the group.
