Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee on January 12, 1984, King Biscuit Flower Hour: In Concert finds Girlschool in the midst of their transition from the sort of female-biker punk-metal that made them Motorhead's soul sisters, to a more commercialized pop-metal sound. The trade-off wasn't the total disaster some fans thought, though -- the material on albums like Play Dirty, which directly preceded this concert, demanded more polished musical skills, even if it toned down their earlier raucous energy somewhat. That's the crossroads Girlschool is at here, and it's an interesting one for devoted fans.
