If you haven't seen one of his shows, you'll want to buy this to acquaint yourself with the electricity of Rick's live performances.

I've been fortunate enough to listen to a limited edition version of this CD for a few months now. All I can say is WOW! Rick Springfield rocks Alive. Anyone who has seen Rick live knows the energy, enthusiasm, and powerful rock he puts into every show. This man gives 150% every night and that shines through on this CD. It's appropriate that the first number is "Affair of the Heart". It is an affair of the heart both in what Rick gives his fans and how they receive it and feed back on into his energy. "Living in Oz" has never sounded better. Rock of Life is a plain fun with the audience participation on the chorus. The Medley alone is worth the CD price (listen for the sirens at the start of Calling all girls in that one). The studio performance of "April 24/ My Father's Chair", a tribute to his father, is hauntingly beautiful. The vocals overall are strong, and the band's sound is tight. If you haven't heard Jessie's Girl live, you haven't heard Jessie's Girl. The editting is also wonderful, in that you don't hear that annoying pause between songs. They just blend from one song to the next so you really feel like you're at a live performance. The CD cover artwork is also incredible, capturing the intensity of Rick live. In short, from the musical content and arrangement, to the presentation this is the best Live album I've ever seen. It's a must have not only for All Rick Springfield fans, but all fans of good guitar driven rock music.

Ok...admit it. You were a Rick Springfield fanatic when you were a teenager way back in the 80's. You were either a diehard fan (like me) who had a shrine to Rick, with posters on your walls, General Hospital notebooks, a variety of Rick t-shirts that you wore to school every day (despite the disdainful looks your mom gave you), and a Panasonic cassette player that played nothing but Working Class Dog, Success Hasn't Spoiled Me Yet and Living in Oz. Or maybe you were a closet fan who was much too cool to admit that you had a Rick tape in your glove compartment and only played it when you were cruising alone. You rocked to the driving beat of "Calling All Girls," but only with the windows up and preferably in a town other than where you lived. You wore Van Halen t-shirts and dark sunglasses. Well, it's time for ALL of Rick's fans to unite and grab THE GREATEST HITS: ALIVE. Close your eyes as "Affair of the Heart" kicks into overdrive...you'll be transported back to 1983, when you hopefully saw Rick for the first time, perched atop a huge prop, as the lights went down and the stage began to smoke. Silhouetted at first, the spotlight came up and Rick strutted down the pyramid-like set, guitar in hand, and I was never the same. He captured the audience, held us in his hands, shook us up and gave us a performance that would last a lifetime in our minds. Rick returned to the stage in 1998, with the same energy and boyish charm that enamored us in the beginning. I happen to think he's even better now than ever; we've all grown up, it seems. You can hear it in the music - he's more comfortable with himself, and his passion for what he does just shines through when he's on the stage. Rick's dedication to his fans is just phenomenal.Read more ›

If you are a Rick Springfield fan, either moderately or fanatically, you absolutely must get this CD. What a performer! Each song seems to have a brand new feel to it, more hard driving guitar playing with an edge. You can hear the craziness from the fans during each song as they sing along with him. A couple of my all time favorites, "Rock of Life" and "State of the Heart" are on the CD and Rick has made these new versions blow away the studio versions of these singles! In fact, you can make that statement for most of the songs on here, and those songs were great before. If I were to make another highlight, it would have to be "I've Done Everything for You" and "Love is Alright Tonight". One very minor complaint,"Souls", a Springfield concert classic isn't on here, but there are 20+ songs that more than make up the difference. One would be hard pressed to show me a better live CD than this one and I have a bunch of them, this is the one to get! Enjoy.

After a hiatus from the music world, Rick Springfield has been back and better than ever for the past couple of years. Touring extensively, his high energy performances have attracted a loyal following of fans.
This album was recorded at several shows around the US during May of 2000. It captures the energetic live Rick Springfield experience wonderfully! I have been a Rick fan for over 20 years, and have been to numerous shows...this album brings back vivid memories of them. I get chills when I hear the opening chords of "Affair of the Heart", picturing Rick running on stage and smashing bouquets of roses on his guitar strings. I can also see him wading through the crowd during "Human Touch", attempting to get people to sing "Don't Talk to Strangers" on a cell phone (just like the AT&T commercial), and inviting fans onstage for "I Get Excited".
Fans from the '80s will recognize most of the songs. There are also 2 tracks from the 1999 "Karma" album ("Free" and "It's Always Something". The first single off of the album is an energetic rendering of "GLORIA", which Rick often performs live. The album also features an emotional rendering of "April 24, 1981" and "My Father's Chair", which both deal with the death of Rick's father.
In summary, this album is a must for all Rick Springfield fans...old, faithful, and new!
