AllMusic Review by

These stinging live versions of Paul Revere & the Raiders' greatest hits are more appealing than the studio versions. They lend "Steppin' Out" a slight blues flavor, giving it an edge over the studio version. The four medleys are cornucopias of goodies that include "Good Things," "Birds of a Feather," "Mr. Sun, Mr. Moon," and "C.C. Rider," among others. Mark Lindsey was an effective lead singer, shining on "Kicks," which is more soulful live, "Mustang Sally," "Louie, Louie," and a revving "You've Really Got Me." If you thought Paul Revere & the Raiders' studio recordings sounded bubblegummy and hokey, this live set will surprise you. A solid effort.
