  • The Nuge has written it in stone for us here. The versions of Great White Buffalo, Hibernation, Stranglehold, and Stormtroopin’ on this album are incredible. Uncle Ted has so much to teach us and this album lays those lessons out like a “how to” manual for living. How any young man can survive his formative years without this album is beyond me.

    Sony does a pretty good job of re-mastering/re-issuing catalog titles and have already done several Nugent titles, why not this one? It’s the one that deserves it the most. Generations yet unborn deserve to hear these classics in the most pristine sound quality we can provide.

    Please Sony, wield your mighty corporate sword for good. Send your legions of engineers to raise this classic to the level of fidelity it so rightly deserves.

    Do it for all of us, but mostly, do it for the children.

  • First off, let me start by saying that the sound on this albums is very flat, and you have to turn it up really loud (not that there’s anything wrong with that) to even hear it very good at all. It has evidently not been remastered. Also, it should be pointed out that some of the times on the songs are off (Hibernation is not 6 minutes, but 17, and Motor City Madhouse isn’t 12 minutes, but 10 and a half). Nonetheless, the performances themselves are great. All of Ted’s legendary antics are captured here, including, but not limited to, several great solos. Vocalist Derek St. Holmes puts on quite a show himself, and the band/crowd dialogue is pretty good throughout. Also, unlike some live albums, every song comes to a satisfying ending. Standout tracks include Stranglehold, Cat Scratch Fever, and Great White Buffalo.

  • Originally released in 1978,this is one of those records that any true fan of late night FM radio never grows tired of.I mean,I think I heard this lp in like every record store I ever visited there for maybe the first year it came out.Some employees would even lower the volume between tracks,you know…when Ted rambles on a bit with some foul mouthed chatter.Come on,folks,that’s one of the best parts of this record.Anyway,Uncle Ted and crew rips through eleven heavy in-your-face meat and potato rockers like “Just What The Doctor Ordered”,”Stormtroopin’”,”Stranglehold”,”Yank Me,Crank Me” and one of his best ever “Great White Buffalo”.Line-up:Ted-guitar&vocals,Derek St.Holmes-rhythm guitar&vocals,Rob Grange-bass and Cliff Davies-drums.Turn this motha UP!!

  • The 10 Motown Digits of Doom at their finest. One of the great live rock and roll albums of all time (along with Seger’s LIVE BULLET, Skynyrd’s ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD, and Zeppelin’s SONG REMAINS THE SAME). This one captures Ted at his high-energy, ear-splitting, lickety split best. Unparalleled guitar playing, Ted as the First White Rapper, Nuge’s primal screams – it’s all here. As a veteran of a half dozen Ted shows (most in his hometown of Detroit), DOUBLE LIVE GONZO is a terrific representation of one of the 70s’ great rockers. Opens with a souped-up “Just What the Doctor Ordered” and closes, as it should, with “Motor City Madhouse.” What’s in between is worth cranking up the volume all the way to 11 (eh, Spinal Tap fans?). Highlights are “Stormtroopin’” and an incredible version of “Great White Buffalo” that showcases Ted’s amazing guitar virtuosity. Even the album cover, with the Motor City Madman, complete with tail (yes, an actual tail), getting blasted with a wall of sound is worth the price. If you’ve got room on the rack for only one Nugent CD, this is the one. It’s such a madhouse.

  • I just saw “Uncle Ted” turn it up and turn it out before KISS a couple of weeks ago, the good news is, he hasn’t lost it! He jammed through some great tunage, much of it on this record.If you only get 1 Nuge album, get this. It contains all of the elements that make Ted who he is: References to hunting (Great White Buffalo), references to womenz (Cat Scratch, Wang Dang), references to kickin’ a** (Storm Trooper), plenty of cursing (between nearly every tune), and GREAT, spirited guitar throughout. Scare the sh*t out of your friends and neighbors, play it loud and proud, rock is alive! :) PS ck Nuge out live sometime if you can.
