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.

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