Editorial Reviews

Originally released in 1981 as a goodbye and 'thank you' to their fans this was a very limited release (approximately 800-900 copies) yet boasted a full multi track live recording sound, extensive post production by the groups latter day producer Jimmy Johsnson and lavish packaging. Original cover and inside sleeve photos reproduced in full.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute MUST HAVE March 16, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Let me begin by saying that the Aces were one of the most extraordinarily talented bands ever to perform, anytime, anyplace. But if you're here, you probably already know that.
This CD was, in fact, recorded from an LP, presumably because the original master tapes are either unavailable or not usable; decent copies of even the original LP is a rarity. However, the recording people have done an absolutely fantastic job of cleaning it up. In the quietest passages, you can hear some minor surface noise, but it is extremely minor and far from annoying. The sound quality is dynamic and warm, and would lead one to conclude the CD may have been made from a test pressing or other higher quality recording. DO NOT BE PUT OFF BY THIS FACT. Read on.
I believe these performances represent the absolute best work the Aces' ever did. They are, simply put, fabulous. I found the music to be even more engaging than the studio originals.
I seldom find a live recording that is tolerable (out of hundreds of live recordings I own, only a couple ever get listened to). This one is not only tolerable, I believe it is some of the Aces' finest work.
If you are an Aces fan, this album is a must-have. You may well find that you prefer it over the studio albums just because of the musicianship in the recordings. The songs are all fairly true to their original forms, with a couple of deviations which are nice.
Get it, today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant live performance! July 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I didn't really "discover" the Aces until the early '80s after almost all of their albums were out of print. Thankfully I was able to find them all in cut-out bins and used stores. Believe me I wanted them ALL! I recommend every one. Shortly after I completed my collection of their '70s albums, they released "How the Hell Do You Spell Rythum", and WOW! as they say: "the hits just keep on comin'!" At about the same time I found an ad in the back of Rolling Stone for the double live album "Full House/Aces High", mail-order only. To make a long story short it is one of the best live albums I own. Weird thing though, the vinyl discs sound better than the CD and I have never said that about anything else I've ever heard. This is a real shame because the sound ranked right up there with the best live albums of that time period (Little Feat's "Waiting for Columbus" to name my favorite). It was MADE for compact disc. Through the head-phones it almost sounds like it was recorded off of the old vinyl album. I still give this 5 stars. It is absolutely a country, bluesy, funky, kick ass CD and you'll love it. I just hope they can remaster it someday.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Aces' Highest September 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I am always leery of live albums because hearing a crowd in the background usually distracts me. But this album came highly recommended by a trusted source, so I took a chance on it and discovered it is possible to make a live album that's really hot. The Aces are a totally unigue band with a sound all their own and these tracks are some of their best numbers. In my mind, there are many genres of music, country, blues, rock, etc. and then there is Aces' music; a superior genre all its own. Here they've recorded perfomances at several different concerts with other great musicians added to the mix, all attended by enthusiastic audiences. When you listen to the album, it's easy to picture the The Ace's soulful lead singer, Russell Smith, having a great time with his songs, his band and his fans. I promise you will never tire of listening to this album because these are great songs delivered by the most talented of musicians with genuine emotion and heartfelt energy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just for The Record July 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD
My copy of this CD is a silver CD, not a CDR as stated by a previous reviewer. Perhaps he/she bought an illegal copy ?

Also, the sound quality is not bad at all on my copy. Much better than I expected. Certainly head and shoulders above the other "old" Aces live discs I have heard.

A worthwhile purchase.
