The title of this disc is technically correct. The versions of most of these songs are longer than their studio-album counterparts, but they are live performances -- not mixes that were originally released on 12" vinyl and made with clubs in mind. While the back of the disc does note that the content here is live, it's in small print, and the live photo on the cover doesn't justify the misleading title, either. Since these performances are apparently pulled from a number of sources, it's hardly the kind of disc that will complement the collection of any hardcore Hall & Oates fan. The performances are fine. The sound quality is inconsistent. But it doesn't really matter, as anyone hunting for Hall & Oates live discs will see the title of this one and keep moving.
