AllMusic Review by

An unidentified and undated live concert that aurally sounds like a radio broadcast from a late-'70s outing. It's well recorded and Jerry Lee is in decent cruise-control mode, rocking out when he needs to, but certainly not the caliber of Live at the Star Club or Greatest Live Show on Earth, two of the strongest live albums by anyone. The backing band gamely keeps up with the Killer as he simply makes it all up as he goes along, jumping between country weepers and blues ("C.C. Rider," "Who Will the Next Fool Be," "Careless Hands," "You Win Again," "Georgia on My Mind") and rockers like "Mean Woman Blues," "Chantilly Lace," "Great Balls of Fire," "Meat Man," and the inevitable "Whole Lot of Shakin' Going On." No notes at all, but a decent late-model Jerry Lee nonetheless.
