AllMusic Review by

This live set was recorded in early 2000 and features a disproportionate number of selections from Seven Wolfstone's then-most-recent studio album. Nine of the 14 selections herein are from that 1999 offering, Wolfstone's most straightahead rock & roll effort which, not coincidentally, was also their first release since Ivan Drever's departure. That's not to imply that Wolfstone has abandoned their roots; piper Stevie Saint and fiddler Duncan Chisholm still carry this band. However, it's the older songs like "Balivanich," "Gillies," and "Tinny Run" that display an obvious tip of the hat to traditional Scottish music, whereas the newer selections seem to be merely rock songs augmented by pipes and fiddle. Still, this is an energetic set by one of Scotland's finest bands of the '90s.
