This album is a reissue of a 1979 live in one of the most famous theaters in Los Angeles.  After "Livestock" from 1977 and partly composed of unreleased tracks, the "Live at the Roxy" turns of a different nature, more "pop / rock", including the introduction song of Phil Collins who has already stated in Genesis ('Duke' will be out soon). Brand X remains a group of jazz-rock high-level technical (listen to the bass and drumming on "Malaga Vergen" in particular). But the problem comes from a sound recording which sometimes gives the impression of listening to abootleg so it seems stifled making difficult immersion This is particularly unfortunate because it plays, it grooves, in a word c ' is musical (and the public expresses his joy that matter).
In the end, we particularly note the first song "Disco Suicide / Algon" which starts slowly but gradually raises the tension with some guitar arpeggios and a battery that also grows in strength or the incredible "Nuclear Burn" bringing finally its name so it seems atomizing everything in its path.
This "Live at the Roxy" is a testament to the game and the power of Brand X in concert. It is regrettable that the sound is not made better. A book for collectors so. More information about http://www.brandxmusic.org
