Editorial Reviews

Another long-awaited reissue of The Ozark Mountain Daredevils' classic albums from the '70s is now available on CD for the first time ever. It's Alive was originally released in 1978 on the A&M label. This project is part of a continuing series of re-releases of the groups work, and will at last meet the demand of the long-term fans who have asked for many years that this Live album be available on CD. It is bound to attract new fans as well, with the same appeal the band's music has always had - rootsy, self-styled Americana that has withstood the test of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a classic April 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I originally bought this in 33 RPM format, which came in a two record set. I wore out those albums. This brings back some of the best songs that the Daredevils played for their enthusiastic fans at concerts around Missouri and Kansas. The recordings are clear, and you can tell the band played to the enthusiasm of their audiences. Additionally, several artists that joined them when they were around their home town of Springfield, Missouri played on this album.

One of the songs is a very neat setting of "Satisfied Mind" played in the men's bathroom at McDonald Arena at Southwest Missouri State University, so that they could gather the acoustic sound of that area.

I've been looking for this to come out on CD for years, it's one of my favorite Daredevils albums. If you are a Daredevil fan, I'd think you'd need this one, regardless of which Daredevil albums you have, to fill out a good collection of this type of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the very best live country-rock CD's February 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am thrilled to finally own this on CD. It is a great compilation of classic Ozark Mountain Daredevils tunes, and it is a lot of fun to listen to as well. They had a great time making this CD, and it shows. For fans of '70's classic country rock, or Ozark Mountain Daredevils fans, it is a must-have. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT LIVE ALBUM November 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am happy to see they have put this fine cd out, fantastic live album wont disappoint. I have all of their stuff this is one of the best, The sound quality is excellent, I waited along time for this set to all come out. It is also a long player. I remember when it first came out, it was a two album set so you get your money's worth on this set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alive and Well June 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A fine, fine concert recording from one of the most underrated bands to emerge from the 1970s "country rock" scene. But as any fan of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils can attest, they were much more than a simple country rock group. Yes, they could deliver country-tinged tunes with sweet harmony and thick-as-grits arrangements. But they could also plug in those electric guitars and go to town, or slow things down and do a melt-your-heart ballad. And it's all here on this live album. Maybe that doesn't make it cohesive, but it sure makes for a good listen. The hits are all here ("Jackie Blue" and "If You Wanna Get to Heaven") plus assorted album tracks and singles. Any album that begins with "Walkin' Down the Road" has got a lot going for it from the get-go. If you enjoyed this band's studio albums over the years ---and they were all fine ones --- don't miss this concert recording too. It's sure to bring back good memories and smiles a-plenty.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Original, The Great March 14, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"It's Alive" could get the thumbs up from me just for the cover. However as I have been a fan of The Ozarks for years I was more than ready to hear what happened when an audience and no second take were available. It's a test for any band.
In some ways this band reminds me of the Beatles; they don't take themselves too seriously, they all contribute to the songwriting and singing and the idea of the song dominates. Each song has it's own sound, each crafted to mood and lyric.
The original beauty and simplicity of the songwriting comes through and quality is maintained.
