Beware of buying this album it is the same as Great Whites Extended versions live minus 2 songs. I made the mistake and realized it after I orderd the album. Just another marketing plow by the record companies. Seems Great Whites label is good at re-issueing albums under different names and this isn’t fair to the Great White fans who have stuck with the band through the years.
If you missed 1998’s Family Values tour featuring Incubus, Orgy, Limp Bizkit, Ice Cube, Rammstein, and Korn, fear not: 15 tracks from the aforementioned bands, plus ”interludes,” add up to well over an hour of neo-metal-angst-rap that can be enjoyed without venturing into a mosh pit. The CD is a cool deal in that it contains the best songs from each lineup, including radio hits such as Orgy’s cover of New Order’s ”Blue Monday,” Limp Bizkit’s breakthrough version of George Michael’s ”Faith,” and Rammstein’s incendiary Germanic ode ”Du Hast.” Korn’s medley of older material and singles from Follow the Leader prove why they’re the headliners. In fact, this CD–and the tour itself–was partly based on the accurate assumption that Korn have such a strong influence that any band they tour with must appear Korn-approved kool to the kids. Both Ice Cube and Rammstein seem out of place, though kudos to Korn for including them. Ultimately, Family Values ’98 is a great sampler for a metal-rap neophyte. –Katherine Turman

I started listening to Great White back in the mid-eighties , when they were doing stuff like Stick It & Shot In the Dark. I’ve been “Hooked” ever since , now Im 48 years old , believe me I know good metal! I lived it & loved it all through the 70’s
80’s & into the early 90’s . I’ve got to admit , I did’nt buy or hear Let It Rock , until 2005 , but I came away thinking this is as good a Great White album , as almost any they’ve recorded.
Tunes Like “Lil Mama , Where Is The Love , Hand On The Trigger..
these are EXCELLENT rockers , Pain Overload & Easy , both strong entries as well. I strongly urge all Great White fans & fans of
good straight Blues Rock in general , pick this up. It will not
this album has a good collection of songs but i know that great white is capable of playing them a lot better. but if you are a diehard fan i would recommend getting it because the wide varitey of songs gives this album credit.
You’d be hard pressed to find a finer example of a live recording. Great White has always amazed me in their ability to stay true to form and not deviate from the cd versions. There’s nothing i hate more than to hear a live recording, and the singer is basically yelling and/or speaking the lyrics. This band makes the live show a work of art.
This is the best live release they’ve put out. I have “thank you goodnight”, and it’s not half as good. The sound quality is much better on this release and they were at the top of their game,this is the definitive line-up also. Great White are an incredible live band, better than their studio releases, so if you can find it buy it!
