After VOA and Three Lock Box, Hagar hooked up with Journey guitarist Neal Schon, himself having finished up with their album Frontiers. Along with Mike Shrieve and Kenny Aaronson, the four staged a series of live gigs (November 9-21, 1983) which was recorded live by the Westwood One Mobile Facility, the folks who work out the King Biscuit programs. The entire album is live, but was overdubbed later in a studio, mixing out the audience noise on 7 of the 9 tracks. The result sounds more distinct than a live album might, yet there is more edge and raw energy than a studio album usually has (King Crimson did this same thing on their Starless And Bible Black album). The Hagar touch is particularly evident on the cover of Procol Harum's "Whiter Shade Of Pale." Also of interest are tracks 3-5, which link up in an almost Progressive Rock fashion, contrasting the death-like state of a marriage-gone-infidelity ("Animation") to the state of the buried Pharaohs in Egypt ("Valley Of The Kings / Giza"). If you like Sammy Hagar, want to hear Neal Schon play hot Rock guitar, or just like catchy songs, this is worth the price!

I've been a Hagar fan going on 20 years now and I simply consider HSAS the pinnacle of Hagar's group rock efforts! I bought the LP the day it came out, played the hell out of it, had to replace it within a few months as I'd played it out! VERY strong songs that stand the test of time include the opener, "Top of the Rock" which smashes into powerchord rock anthems like "Missing You", "Animation", "Hot and Dirty" and a great cover of "Whiter Shade of Pale". I was amazed to find a first issue this CD around 1990 when it had first gone out of print and I quickly snapped it up, thankful to finally have it archived on CD! This is just simply the most amazing hard rock CD I have ever heard! I wish some of the outtakes from those original shows would surface at some point....(HSAS covered a James Brown song called "Through the Eyes of Love" which I would kill to have on disc, "Tough Enough", "Since you Came", "Movin' in for the Kill" and an incredible power-ballad called "Reaching Out" haven't seen the light of day since they aired on the radio in 1983). This is most definitely one of my top 5 CD's to have while stranded on a desert island!!

What a Band! A true eighties super group. What on earth possessed them to get together? I have no idea. Why they disbanded? Not a glimmer either, and they only made one album, which was even stranger as apart from one classic cover they were all original songs - and it was a Live album. (Even being with all the crowd noise cut out.)

So, who have we got here? Well, on lead vocal is one of America's finest ever singer and charismatic front man - plus all round maniac - Sammy Hagar. He is an ex of the greatly lamented Montrose, and the not so lamented Van Halen (or Van Hagar as they became known at the time), plus, of course, of a glittering solo career.
On lead guitar we have one of America's most respected axe man (a real musician's musician), Neal Schon, ex Journey, ex Santana, and ex an amazing stint with Paul Rogers.
On bass guitar is one of the best showman this dog has ever seen treading the boards. It is the great and incomparable Kenny Aaronson, who also happens to be one of the nicest guys you could hope to meet. Kenny is of ex Foghat, ex Derringer, ex Joan Jett, ex Blue Oyster Cult, and ex Bob Dylan.
Then behind the drum kit is Mr. Michael Shrieve, a solid man in more ways than one. As ex Santana, his drum sound was almost as important to that band as was the guitarist's.
So, after that slightly over the top opening, what's the music like? Do you really think this Dog is that stupid to give it such a big build up, and then dish it? No, of course not. They simply pour Rock & Roll out the speakers. First song up is 'Top Of The Rock', a great name for an opening number and a great number indeed.

1st side only??? Whatever......this is a great record all the way through. This album really lets the listener hear Sammy and Schon at their finest. I am very pleased to find this on CD......had it on tape for years. I would reccomend it to anyone that loves Journey or Montrose.....but mostly for anyone that just loves rock and roll. It starts of kicking ass with "Top of the Rock"//////Sammy attitude all over this one. Then...."Missing You"....a love song with no lack of smoking guitar and drums........then "Animation"...anyone that has gone through a divorce can really appreciate this track. Kind of has a sinister sound to it. Anyway.......pick this one up. It is very well worth the money. Good production on this album as well......fun to listen to.....and before the record companies decided what "WE" want to here is a bunch of compressed crap!
People ask me why I do not like most new rock and roll.......I tell them" because there is still so much music of the old I still have not gotten to here" This is just one of those times........pick it up for yourself....you will see.
