It took Black Top Records two years to put this record out after the Neville Brothers recorded it live at Tipitina’s in New Orleans in September, 1982, and one reason may be that it presents a mediocre, going-through-the-motions set.

At their best, the Nevilles achieve a transcendent musical mixture, and even at the level of mere professionalism they’re an impressive unit, but this just isn’t the live album of which they are capable.
