Recorded live at the Sturgis Biker Rally, Jackyl has delivered to us an energetic set of their classic numbers. The piece is a pretty standard live album with little bantering between the singer Jesse James Dupree and the audience. This leaves more time for the music but also makes the piece run very quickly. The tracks selected are perfect for the seasoned fan of the group as well as someone who would like to give them a try. I was never more than the casual listener this CD worked for me as I viewed it more of a greatest hits live piece. Since it included all of the songs that I knew I was able to enjoy it a little easier.

Tracks that stood out to me most specifically are “The Lumberjack Song”, which is still played with a chainsaw and actually very amusing to hear in a live setting. Also “Push Comes To Shove” which was probably the bands biggest hit. While I felt the piece was good this is more for the diehard fan than the new or casual listener in an immediate sense. Such a listener will probably be better served first by a greatest hits studio piece.

There is not really anything special in terms of the interior booklet, just a two page fold out. This CD has a seperate DVD released and I think it might have been smart for them to package the two together. Jackyl has a defined audience these days, and if it can be done for a band like Creed and Evanescence – Jackyl could have done the same thing. Take a look at the piece anyway.
