REO Speedwagon, ‘Live at Moondance Jam’ – Album Review

When compiling a list of the greatest live rock albums of all time, it would be impossible to leave out REO Speedwagon’s 1977 masterpiece, ‘You Get What You Play For.’ Consequently, it would be near impossible for REO to release another live album without drawing comparisons to that double-LP.

‘As Real as It Gets’ is Million Dollar Reload’s third and most recent album. Some who are unfamiliar with Million Dollar Reload might ask why a band with only two albums under their belt would release a live album so soon. But to those who have become fans over the last two albums, it makes perfect sense.

Lita Ford captivates both her in-house and at-home audience through the entire performance, and kept the live recording true with no overdubs or engineering trickery. This is what made the classic live albums of the seventies and eighties so popular, and Lita Ford achieves these goals with the same strength and success.

You can’t get any more specific than the title; this album has the band tearing through both albums with complete note-for-note accuracy, musical passion and surging youthful power. These two albums contain a considerable number of Styx’s greatest hits and most heavily hailed songs, from “Blue Collar Man [Long Nights]” and “Queen Of Spades”, to “Come Sail Away” and “Miss America”.

‘Live In Munich 1977′ is a standout live album that shows the band doing some expanded takes on such songs as “Mistreated” and “Catch The Rainbow”, with some live renditions running nearly 20 minutes long; which, if you’re already familiar with the band and their music, is no problem at all, in fact it only adds to the listening experience.
