These "Early years" are great because you can verify there that when the Lyres are inspired as they are some evenings, they are the most fantastic rockin' band one can imagine. THIS RECORD IS A PURE NUGGET and its speeds up a 100 miles per hour. You can nearly feel the sweat beads coming of Jeff's hair to your face. A great collection of classic Lyres songs and covers! The Lyres are covering "Geraldine" so cleverly it sounds like a product of their own. Jim Topper is introducing the band and exalting his admiration speaking of its "majesticity". Bob Colby, famous for the "boob" - see the Real Kids first album - asks for "let's get a Party" and of course Jeff Monoman is treating the audience as if he was giving the ultimate party of the sixties.

This gotta be one of the best live albums ever. On WERS-FM part of the album they sound so confident and powerful ... from guitar feedback on "nobody but me" to inevitable foot stompers like "take a look at me" and "let's have a party" you can feel the heart and passion. MONOman is one of the best frontmen in RnR history slamming his trademark vox continental organ.
THANX for this brilliant share
