A Week of Kix (and Friends): Live Classic Album Review

Posted on Saturday, September 13, 2008 at 07:58AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments3 Comments
Over the past week I've told you about some of my favorite Kix albums, videos and side projects. If you are new to to the band or only have money to purchase one Kix album - you must own Live. 


Kix Live was  was recorded at the University of Maryland and released in 1993. As you would expect, this live album features some of the band's best songs including "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah," "Hot Wire," "Rock n' Roll Overdose," "Sex" and "Same Jane." The major downfall to Live is the exception of "Cold Shower."

Despite the fact that I own quite a few live discs, I am not necessarily a fan. I think it's hard to capture the authenticity of a live show on a canned recording. Still, a few live releases succeed - and Kix Live is one of them. The excitement of the crowd seems pure and the album doesn't seem "doctored to death" after the fact in the studio.

You can purchase Kix Live here.


Tonight I finally see the band live in Baltimore. I feel like it's been a long week - and wait - for this day.

Amazing album that should have included Cold Shower as you stated Ally, but oh well. See you later tonight!!!
