Review by Anna on October 2, 2010.

I have always yearned for time to go backwards as opposed to forwards. The recent effects of technology on human behavior disgust me, yet in this recording, technology does bring us back in time….

This precious take from “Live After Midnight” was recorded on KMUW Wichita in late ’79 and salvaged in 2009. I don’t know why they never released these songs before (with the exception of one track that was released on a demo that even the band cannot find)!

So here you have it, five great tracks once lost now found, oozing with luxurious heavy metal nostalgia. A raw, unaltered sound perfectly preserved for thee.
