There's doubt that Guns N' Roses were one of the best bands of the late-eighties, early nineties, and this live show helps to establish that fact! This show was recorded around the same time that their excellent album 'Appetite for Destruction' was released, and so we're treated to a concert almost full of songs from that great album. I've often heard that Guns N' Roses aren't all that good live; this is the first time I've seen a concert from them, and I've got to say that there isn't much wrong with it. Axl's voice is a strained at times; but his energy and commanding stage-presence mask this nicely and he makes for an excellent leading man. The songs themselves are classics, with the likes of Sweet Child o'Mine, Out Ta Get Me, Welcome to the Jungle and Paradise City featuring. My one complaint on the track listing is that they decided to put the awful cover of 'Knocking on Heavens Door' in there. It's actually not quite as bad live; but the show would have been better if they'd stuck to their strongest material. The parts in-between songs, such as Axl Rose introducing the rest of the band, are good and while the Ritz isn't the biggest venue in the world, the crowd create a good atmosphere and on the whole; this is a damn fine live show from a damn fine band.
