From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars "So ladies, fish, and gentlemen..."

BOC has released some good live albums through the years, but nothing, and I mean NOTHING to compare with this all-out rocking blast of power. There may not be a lot of prog here but there is a lot of rock! The band is at it's finest here, from instruments to vocals to down-right fun. Great tunes from their 1st three discs are here as well as "Born to be Wild" which BOC is the only band besides Steppenwolf to get right. And possibly the best album title ever. The best song here, and my personal all-time fav from the Cult is "Last Days of May" which kicks it out a hundred times more powerful on this disc than on the original first album, where it was a much more laid back version. God Bless Buck Dharma and Eric Bloom, and the boys for this masterpiece. This deserves a 5 star rating, but seeing as this is a prog site, I will give it 4. (Really 4.99999)
