Until the ZOOM TOUR LIVE 2001 album finally comes out, this CD remains perhaps the best overall ELO concert document. LIVE AT WINTERLAND '76 captures ELO as they were nearing their peak artistically and commercially. This nicely mixed, high-quality recording crackles with electricity, in contrast to the disappointing LIVE AT WEMBLEY '78 CD. At WINTERLAND, not every note is hit, and some of the licks miss their targets. There are even a couple of moments of feedback. All of these elements actually enhance this recording, however, giving it an intimacy and immediacy that quickly make the listener forget that this particular concert took place nearly 30 years ago. "Fire On High" is perhaps the penultimate progressive rock instrumental by anyone, anywhere, and it loses none of its excitement and vitality in this live recording. The "Eldorado Suite" captures some of the highlights from the brilliant 1974 ELDORADO album. WINTERLAND performance showcases Kelly Groucutt's outstanding vocals, which nicely compliment Jeff Lynne. Several times here, Kelly steps out of the shadows and takes the lead without missing a beat. There's some interesting between-song banter and instrument tuning between the various ELO mates. I'm glad it's included. The outstanding "10538 Overture/Do Ya" Medley pre-dates the re-recording of "Do Ya" for A NEW WORLD RECORD, and was a favored staple of ELO concerts of that era. All of the lovely bits that you would expect from ELO are here; what's surprising is the intensity and effectiveness of the rockers. "Poker," "Ma-Ma-Ma Belle" and "Roll Over Beethoven" pack a wallop in this live recording, even perhaps beyond their studio counterparts. (Though "Beethoven" is perhaps a bit chaotic.) All ELO fans will be thrilled with this one; fans of great live rock and roll will enjoy it as well. We want more live ELO! (Stay tuned for the ZOOM TOUR album coming out soon.)

This is a really nice live release from a band that I always didn't expect much from live. I was really surprised at how good it is. The first impression is what a good drummer Bev Bevan is and my next is what a good keyboard player Richard Tandy is. I was impressed with Jeff Lynne's guitar playing. This was a band blacklisted for supposed lip synching. The only place I notice that is on some parts that couldn't be performed live ie the beginning of the Eldorado medley,ect. It's very brief and also obvious when it happens. This is a live performance. I wouldn't list any of the players as being heavyweights in their field(Jeff Lynne is no Eric Clapton for example)however this release is a blast and if you like ELO grab it. The only thing that might bug fans is that the strings are under amplified

Jeff Lynne and Company came off just tremendous on this 1976 Live At Winterland disc. This disc has great sound compared to Live at Wembly '78. This is the best live album out there under the E.L.O. Name. Get this one now.

For decades the only document of live Electric Light Orchestra was the poor sounding import record: "The Night The Lights Went On In Long Beach". It was never available in the USA, I found my copy in The Philippines in 1978. The Long Beach Show is from 1974, and includes music from the first three ELO records. Under the sludge of a lousy source tape, there is some amazing music, that proves ELO were a force in concert that few other groups could ever match.

Moving onwards to 1998, not one but THREE CD's of live ELO were brought forth. Concerts from: 1976, 1977 & 1978 of medium to very good quality sound would unlock more of the live mysteries of The Electric Light Orchestra.

Here is the 1976 ELO concert from: Winterland, San Francisco. The night was: Feb 3, 1976. The band was in the middle of the: "Face The Music" tour. The difference between the Long Beach show and this night in San Francisco, is a World apart. ELO, was on the brink of super success {the next record released before the end of the year would make them one of the biggest selling bands on Earth}. The sound here is not of multi-track professional quality, it sounds like it was taken from the soundboard for playback of the show for Jeff Lynne and never intended for an official release. There are plenty of bootlegs of worse quality out there to choose from and: "Live At Winterland '76", DOES beat the 'Boots'.

There is 60 minutes of ELO music here, 10 tracks from all their records. I own the 1977 & 1978 concert CD's as well as this, but for me this one edges out those two because of the band's performance here...This was a good night. With the hits: "Evil Woman", "Strange Magic" and "Showdown" played with the X-Factor Plus, these live versions add much more weight than their studio cousins gave us.
