This record really takes me back to the old days when Twisted … Sister was the best bar/club band in the country.Me and the boys used to see them whenever we could at “Speaks” in Island Park.(There is a picture of a “Speaks” flyer inside the CD, which is very cool and makes me think that some of this CD was actually recorded there…it doesnt say) They were so loud and just such an incredible live force that I still remember some of their shows like it was yesterday. This album is not for the average Twisted Sister fan…..this is for all the real S.M.F’s that remember Twisted from the old days before they made it big. The sound quality isnt great (but that is to be expected), but it really captures Twisted at their best…live and in a small club. As it says in the CD, “Sit back and enjoy the energy, which more than makes up for the sound quality”. And remember…..Play It Loud Mutha!!!

I used to go and see Twisted … Sister back in the day at “Speaks” in Island park…still one of the best live acts that I have ever seen! Twisted was so raw and powerful (and don’t forget LOUD!), I still remember being at their shows…the audience would go absolutely wild for them. They were without a doubt THE best club/bar band of the late 70’s early 80’s. I wish I could go back and see them at “Speaks”, but I can’t, so this CD is the closest that I can come….and it really hits the mark. I feel like im back at the club when I put this record on…the sound quality isnt that great, but it is powerful and energetic like an old school Twisted show. So for all you S.M.F’s, pick up this record…you wont be disappointed. And by the way, the first 2 tracks are new releases and they are excellent! So buy this CD and PLAY IT LOUD MUTHA!
Awesome album, keep em comming and the SMF’s will listen!
