with extensive touring during their heights of popularity after the success of Demons and Wizards and The Magician's Birthday.
This double live "US Gold" album on the Island Label was recorded in front of a live audience in Birmingham, England-featuring all their major hits songs.
The set was played with so much energy and power and I just love the prolonged song "July Morning"
The record ended with a medley of classic rock and roll songs like "Roll over Beethoven", "Blue Suede Shoes"..etc
David Byron (ex-Spice)-vocals-a peacockish dresser with a great voice who likes attention and shake the mike-stand hard.
Mike Box-(ex-Stalkers/Spice)-guitar, vocals-plays chunky chords with simple climatic and melodic solos.
Lee Kerslake-drums-a body drummer because he doesn't play his drum kit from his wrist or from his strong forearms-a muscular powerhouse with every crushing beat.
Gary Thain (ex-Keef Hartley)-bass, vocals-looks thin and gaunt but a tower of power on bass-one of the best rock bassist in UK.
Side Four: 1. Look at yourself 2. Magician's Birthday 3. Love machine 4. Rock and roll medley -Roll over Beethoven- Blue suede shoes-Mean woman blues- At the Hop-Whole lotta shakin' goin' on-Blue suede shoes.
