This double CD album got RUINED when they cut 157 Riverside Avenue to make it more "politically correct." Missing is the part where Kevin Cronin talks about smoking dope with some chick at his side. Also, the telephone scat is missing, where Richrath and Cronin go back and forth on the microphone and guitar. That's a pity, since these moments were highlights of the album. This was REO's greatest hits to date, before they sold out to corporate pop rock with Hi Infidelity.

I agree. Those type of things are the reason we loved live stuff back then, and still remains true to this day. Columbia should have left their meat hooks off of this one and let fans spend their money as they saw fit.

Cool album that includes studio and live recordings,,,my fave cuts are # 7,10,11,13,14,15(classic song!) & 19.A band that i've seen in concert and surely rocks good .85/100

157 Riverside Avenue and Kevin's version of Son of a Poor Man are the highlights here, the whole album is a fine time capsule into a band that took awhile to get their engine fired up, but they came together and went to the top.
