MCA Special Products' Greatest Tour Bands Ever Recorded contains live versions of ten hits and album-rock favorites, most from artists that were signed to MCA Records. None of these versions match the originals -- some, in fact, fall far short -- but they may be of interest to a fan of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Three Dog Night, Night Ranger, Moody Blues, Electric Light Orchestra, Commander Cody, Wishbone Ash, Steppenwolf, Iron Butterfly and Rod Stewart who wants to hear whether their favorites can cut it on stage as well as record. Usually, they can't.
