AllMusic Review by

Cleopatra Records offers up this live set by glam metal queen Lita Ford. Recorded in 2000, the album comprises material from her first six solo albums, the most recent of which prior to this recording was 1995's Black. Her major chart hits "Kiss Me Deadly" and the Ozzy Osbourne duet (sans Ozzy) "Close My Eyes Forever" are both here, and she sounds remarkably vibrant playing for a small club's worth of hardcore fans. Her voice and guitar playing are in good form, though there are moments here that sound like obvious overdubs or pre-recorded parts, like the way-too-clean backing vocals on "What Do You Know About Love." Still, most of it has the fire of a hard-rocking band playing in a sweaty rock club, which is what fans would want from one of the founding Runaways.
