The Good: This is an excellent mix and transfer from a show that was originally used as a radio broadcast and recorded at The Country Club in Reseda, CA back in the early 80s. This show was also a widely circulated bootleg. Yngwie is on fire and Graham Bonnet is sounding his best. A good set list including several tracks that were not featured on the "Live Sentence" LP. The real treat here is hearing Yngwie's take on Michael Schenker's "Desert Song" from the "Assault Attack" LP which Graham sang on. Included as a bonus track is yet another un-necessary cover of "All Night Long" featuring George Lynch on guitar. I would rather hear the live version from the show which was likely the encore that night.

The Bad: The worst cover art I have ever seen. It looks like they spent about six bucks on packaging. (The bootleg versions have better artwork). Martin Popoff does a nice job with the liner notes but I wish he had more space to work with. He could have written a nice detailed essay on the band but insted was limited to the standard two page insert. Also, a lazy editing job. You can hear where the banter was cut out between songs and the crowd noise doesn't synch.

This may be one of the best live recordings I have ever heard. The fact that it is 27 years old is incredible. The set list is killer and the entire disc rocks from start to finish. I don't have a bad thing to say here....

this is one of the best live albums I've ever heard, up their with Ozzy Randy Rhodes tribute material, Yngwie and Graham Bonnet are spot on, it's a shame they didn't stay together

Kick ass concert, recorded extremely well. On a good stereo the stage, left to right and front to back are startingly present. Yngwie's playing is on fire here and the drummers definitely got it going on too. Never heard Bonnet singing better or stronger either. Not to be missed!!

Live 83 is a FANTASTIC addition to add to your library. It not only showcases the young Yngwie Malmsteen, but how this band COULD HAVE done more, had they laid off the alcohol per the liner notes. I remember buying the "No Parole From Rock-N-Roll" album from a local record store and people asking me "who is Alcatrazz?" I read about the Swedish wunderkind in a guitar magazine and thought 'who is this guy?' I still have my album and I STILL hold it in high regard. The production is great and yeah, you can hear the Rainbow/Schenker influences. Plus, we get to hear an early rendition of the instrumental "Evil Eye". The live recordings are great. Personally, I could do without the bonus track of "All Night Long". Nothing against George Lynch but the song really doesn't belong on this disc. Graham sounds a bit roached from many years of hard partying. I prefer the Rainbow version.

If you want to hear the young Malmsteen in action, get this disc. The band sounds great, Graham's vocals are good, although he does slip a few places but so did Gillan on Purple's "Live In Japan". Overall, a great live disc.

I just picked this CD up today. I've been on a bit of a Graham Bonnet kick as of late (I think he's got one of the all-time great and unique voices in Hard Rock). I absolutely loved Alcatrazz way back when, but of course over time I've lost track of things and had no idea this CD even existed. Thankfully, due to my latest "kick" I ended up coming across this a few days ago on Amazon and I had to buy it. I was expecting some half-assed lousy quality CD but to my total surprise...it sounds REALLY good. I'm honestly shocked. I mean...it sounds REALLY GOOD! Bonnet's voice is outstanding, Yngwie sounds amazing, the band is tight, the drums are crisp. Wow! Good purchase (pat's himself on the back).

In my opinion this is Malmsteen at his best. Alcatrazz, the transitional band between his first breaking big with Steeler & his own project Rising Force finds him at his creative best as he broadens his range & expands his creativity. This release in particular is an unbelievable assault on the sonic senses. The "mix & recording" are top shelf & you will be hard pressed to find an equal in all of Malmsteen’s vast library. I use quotes because live is not always what it appears to be now is it? I have had an original broadcast (KLOS, Los Angeles) cassette tape of this show since it originally aired & was very pleased to find that it had been released again all these years later.

This used to be a bootleg but I'm glad it was released. Malmsteen and Bonnet are at the top of their game and the band keeps up with them with rockin' class.They even do a killer version of an Michael Schenker song that makes this CD a catch.Recommended.
