Since Bloodrock's studio albums often sounded leaden, as if they were a live jam band that couldn't figure out how to translate their sound to the studio, it wouldn't be an unnatural supposition that if their first live effort, appropriately titled Bloodrock "Live," would be more dynamic and exciting than the average Bloodrock album.

What is included, however, is completely awesome. The extended versions of ".
