  • This was a good release for the King Biscuit series. Buyer Beware though… They’ve just re-released this puppy with a different cover, but it’s still the same mix, with all the fadeouts still there. They could have corrected that in this release, but I guess they have their reasons for doing so.
    So if you bought the version with the cover as shown here, don’t worry about getting the other one.
    Takes me back….

  • I love the King Biscuit and Westwood One concerts that are available on CD, officially and unofficially. The recordings are clear and well-mixed but never overproduced. The back of the CD states that it was digitally remixed and remastered. On this CD there were no program announcer voice-overs. However, King Biscuit released it track-at-once, meaning that there is an annoying fade-out and fade-in between every song. Unacceptable. Just when you are really getting into it, there is another break — 12 all together in this 13 song collection.Since I am a bootleg CD trader with experience in remastering concerts, I mixed a gapless (disc-at-once) edition for myself. That’s how KB should have done it. However, boot traders do not trade official releases, so I am sorry I can’t help everyone — I’d like to.

  • The performance is a gritty live performancefrom her ‘81 Precious Time tour.All of the early hits are here, andthe best part is that it is truly a live album just like 8-15-80. The problem with her Live From Earth (82-83 tour) album is that it is overproduced to death, too many synthsizers (I love new wave music, but listen to HELL IS FOR CHILDREN on LFE and compare it to the gritty hard rock sound on the other live cd’s to get what I mean).If you are a fan of Pat’s, pick this one up. You’ll find yourself listening to it in the car over and over. END

  • This CD is much better than her later live ones such as Summer Tour. The use of two guitarists is a big reason, because although her husband Neil is a great guitarist and songwriter on his own, he cannot sound full enough by himself and ends up trying to do too much on those later albums. This album has some fantastic interplay between the two axemen, whoever they are (Neil being one of them, I assume). Pat’s voice is a little bit tired, which is understandable, considering how much she puts into her singing. She has to go into her falsetto during Fire and Ice a bit, but that’s really the only negative I can think of. The tracks they include in this concert are a fantastic selection, but it’s mainly the clear production and fullness of the band that make it sound truly great. Awesome guitars!

  • Made in USA in 1999, Serial# 70710-88054-2, Playing Time: 60:54The KBFH treats us this time with another great concert! This weekly radio show covered a lot of ground (both musically and geographically) to bring great music to radio listeners.As usual, the recording quality is superb. Pat and her band were recorded during the fall of 1981 in support of the “Precious Time” album. The versions are interesting, and you can hear a 10-minute rendition of “In The Heat Of The Night”.The line-up at the time still included Scott Sheets as a second guitarist, so that Pat’s hubby Neil can stretch out. Pat’s voice is in top shape, and the track selection couldn’t be better.This is a GREAT live album; all her others, though generally good, pale in comparison. A great mixture of power and feeling!
