For all potential buyers who may be wondering about some of the criticism concerning this record, let me fill you in. After HUNGRY FOR STINK and THE BEAUTY PROCESS failed to generate the sales of BRICKS ARE HEAVY, L7 was quickly dropped by their label, Slash Records. This led to a period of uncertainity for the band, who were wondering about what label they would end up signing with, or if the band would even survive at all.

While they were considering their options, the band came across two bootleg shows from Omaha and Osaka and decided to release them on CD to keep the band's name alive until their future was certain. This explains the inferior sound. Once you get past that, this is an enjoyable record. The ladies were a hard-rocking outfit and this comes through despite the poor quality.

Since the band was using bootleg tapes, there's no overdubbing or removing any mistakes, such as the out-of-tune guitar parts on "Bitter Wine", which makes this one of the most genuine and realistic live albums ever released.

Aside from being loud, furious,and energetic, L7 was a lot of fun. Part of the fun of any L7 show was the banter between the band members and the crowd, and, occasionally, each other. Midway through the album, Donita Sparks and new bassist Gail Greenwood turn the concert into a comedy act, tossing jokes and wisecracks back and forth until Sparks says "We're a rock band, not a Vegas act. I guess we have to play some songs now.

Never was THAT huge of an L7 fan, but I did get to see them once as support band for Marilyn Manson, as I thought they were decent. 'Live: Omaha To Osaka' documents two (2)live concerts of the group when they played, of course in Omaha, NE and Osaka, Japan. The live CD isn't perfect but the sound is acceptable. Some may call L7's music 'Feminist Punk' or even 'Riot Grrrl' (is that second one even a genre?). Some of the tunes that I liked best were "Bad Things", the punk / metal goodies "Death Wish", "Non-Existent Patricia", "Slide" and "Fast And Frightening". Line-up: Suzi Gardner & Donita Sparks - guitar & vocals, Dee Plakas - drums and Jennifer Finch - bass. Probably will be most appreciated by fans of Seven Year B****, Babes In Toyland, Hole, Pandoras and Luna-chicks.

1.-I'm a L7 fan. Let's make that clear

2.-It's a shame such great songs are featured with such poor, terrible sound. Imagine going to a Rock show with the flu, seeing the band in the back of a low-budget club. This is it

3.-Some reviewer wrote "I have heard worse ones". Yeah, me too, but they were not OFFICIAL releases!!! ANY BOOTLEG nowadays sounds light years better!

4.-Such cool intro with the marching band...again, down the drain it goes

5.-Great poster designer Frank Kozik did the design for this one... And he did not do very well either! The photoshop tricking is obvious on the cover

6.-L7 RULES...BUT NOT LIKE THIS!!

I've never seen this in a store except for the copy I bought. I already loved L7 but this album really blew me away. I never got to see them before they broke up but this album makes up for it. This album also serves as an unofficial "greatest hits" of a sort since the songs range across 3 albums.

The album is really humorous as well as rocking. The opening medley of L7 songs played by the John Marshall high school marching band is unparalleled as a square-but-cool tribute played by kids that march in formation every friday night during football season. The stage banter between songs is really hilarious "Let me tell you something, we, L7, would rather be here with you in Omaha tonight than with the finest people in the world!" which is met with wild applause. Hahahahha. There are dozens of funny bits like this that give you a glimpse into the band beyond reading lyrics and reviews.

The songs are great. The sound quality is nothing to write home about but I've definitely heard worse. If you've ever bought a Sex Pistols bootleg you know what I mean. This is 100 times better! You can hear every instrument on every song, and the drums are epecially crisp on the Osaka tracks. The live feeling is infectious and exciting. It's truly classic and I'm really sad that some of the other reviewers don't seem to agree.Used copies are a steal last time I noticed, so grab this rare gem while you can since they sure arent going to press any more.

'So what's there to do in Ohmaha?'
'Nothing? OK a whole lot of nothing!'
So goes some of the banter on L7's live show in both Omaha and Osaka. I love L7, and really love them live (I've seen them three times), but the fans deserved better than this.
I love Live, raw rock at it's finest and you can tell there was no over-dubbing in the studio, but the recording is so amateur. You would swear someone was taping this in the crowd with a tape recorder ala 80's style.
The song set is great, but L7 always ends their show with 'Pretend we're Dead', which isn't here. I thought also they might sneak in 'I would walk 5000 miles, and I would walk 5000 more'. They do that song as a joke for every show I've seen them at.
Oh well, it's L7 and if you're a fan, you just gotta have it. Rock on.
