5 stars It is hard to criticise this incredible live album negatively at all. For me one of the top five progressive live albums to come out of the 70's. Remember Yessongs, Second's Out and also Ricochet by TD , On The Road sits proudly up there with these gems and it was a double LP release. The musician's worked brilliantly together with Reebop Kwaku Baah back in the percussive fold. Here we have ' jamming' at it's absolute best." Glad / Freedom Rider" the opener is 20 minutes of mesmerizing sound. Being live the tracks have been lengthened to accomodate for the apty titled On The Road LP" Light Up Or Leave Me Alone" is another great track as is the live version of the much debated ( Sometimes I feel So) Uninspired" but for me the highpoint is the seventeen minutes of " Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys" As I said all the intrument playing is of exceptional quality but Chris Wood's sax and flute needs a special mention too. Not an album to ignore especially if you are fond of those great 70's live albums.
