In 1979, Ted Nugent was still flying high on the success of such hit albums as CAT SCRATCH FEVER and DOUBLE LIVE GONZO, and was one of hard rock's top concert attractions. Not issued until 1997, LIVE AT HAMMERSMITH '79 captures the Nuge at his live peak, rocking a British audience like there was no tomorrow.
Even though original singer/guitarist Derek St. Holmes had split from the Nuge by this point, LIVE is just as strong as DOUBLE LIVE GONZO. Ted and his band let it rip from beginning to end--just check out such brash rockers as "Free For All," "Paralyzed," and "Dog Eat Dog."
