5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE FORGOTTEN GREAT LIVE ALBUMS OF ALL TIME January 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The question often pops up, during bull sessions amongst fans of popular music: "What's the greatest live album of all time?" And the answers that invariably pop up are the Allman Brothers' "Live at the Fillmore" and the Grateful Dead's "Live/Dead" album; and then someone will chime in with "Frampton Comes Alive," and somebody else will opine that his/her fave is the Woodstock soundtrack, and so on. Then things will heat up, as Grand Funk's "Live Album," Hendrix' "Band of Gypsys" and the Jefferson Airplane's "Bless Its Pointed Little Head" are thrown into the mix. (And I happen to love that first Hot Tuna album; the live acoustic one.) Not cited too often, however, is "Where's the Money," Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks' marvelous live album from 1971. And yet, this wonderful disc is at least as good as any of the others, and contains 12 perfect tunes that are each little gems of songwriting and performance. What an incredible show this must have been to sit through! Recorded at the Troubadour in Los Angeles in February 1971, the energy of each of these peppy tunes is quite infectious.
I've always had a difficult time describing Hicks' music to people who are unfamiliar with it. It's not rock, not blues and not folk. There ARE elements of country and swing in it, though, and the tight harmonies by backup singers Maryann Price and Naomi Ruth Eisenberg (aka the Lickettes) will indeed remind some of the Andrews Sisters and other swing singers of the 1940s. The music is toe-tappingly irresistible, and contains invariably witty lyrics. I've seen Dan Hicks several times in concert, but have never seen a show that compares with the one recorded for posterity here (although he is still wonderful to see live).

5.0 out of 5 stars From the Land of Happy Feet . . . April 2, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Dan Hicks enjoyed a remarkable degree of commercial success in the early `70's playing a cross-pollination of jazz, folk, and cowboy music that was decidedly non-mainstream. Think of what would happen if Lyle Lovett, Stephanne Grapelli, the Andrews Sisters, and Roy Rogers had decided to form a band, and that may give you an idea of what Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks were about - or, as Hicks puts it, "Hey, I don't have to describe my style. That's for a guy trying to get a job somewhere, and I'm not looking for a job."
This live recording was the first that featured the best-known evolution of his Hot Licks (violinist/mandolin player Sid Page, bassist Jamie Leopold, and "Lickettes" Maryann Price and Naomi Ruth Eisenberg - guitarist John Girton would join up later), and remains an eclectic masterpiece today (The title cut wound up concluding a recent "Sopranos" episode). The musicianship is marvelous, the energy level infectious - and Hicks' deadpan patter between numbers is priceless (Sample - "This song is about - well, it's about three minutes long." Well, it's funny when HE says it). My personal favorites include the moody, mysterious "News From Up the Street", "Dig a Little Deeper" and the hilariously non-PC "Is This my Happy Home?" But the whole CD is a hoot - and if you aren't tapping your feet to this, you are either dead or a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Tight, Energetic Acoustic Jazz Live CD December 10, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD recorded live at the troubador in Los Angeles is an incredibly fun album. Recorded at the band's peak, the harmonies and precision of the playing are studio quality. Excellent sound. This is the original swing/jazz filtered through Dan Hicks weird sensibility. Deserves to be popular with all of the recent converts to swing and jive music. One of the best (or the best) live recordings that I know of, and great fun that will leave you smiling.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars, more if you got 'em. December 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Possibly the finest live record ever released. It's one of those records that is so fluid, smooth, humerous and swingin' musically, that it sets a standard rarely, if ever matched for a live release. I'm a big fan of DAN HICKS and his HOT LICKS. They're all great records. But this one is the best one. Flawless. Song after song dancing blithly past your ears in perfect harmony and pacing. Dan always has been able to create music that is unique. I've never known what to properly call it. Swing/jazz, bluegrass, hippy music, folk rock, violin band. Heck, there's just nothing that really says it properly. Quite an achievement. His humerous remarks between songs really brings the record to an even higher level artisticly. I have loved this album for maybe 30 years and expect to always. Thanks guys. Any other old material you find layin' around that you wanna' release such as the 'Muse' record and more, please, feel free. What pleasure.

I absolutely agree with one of the reviewers above...this album definately ranks among the top live performances ever recorded...anywhere. A friend had a copy of their "Striking It Rich" album (a studio gem, for sure) and I just loved that unique swing-jazz-cowboy thing they did, so when I saw "Where's the Money" at the local record shop (yes, they existed back in the 70's) I grabbed it up and played it over and over and just couldn't believe how tight this group was live. Upbeat and happy, perfect for listening to while driving, too! These are superb musicians who really created some magic that night. I even bought a copy for a girl I wanted to impress back then. She loved the album more than she liked me, but hey, I just have to pop Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks in my CD player and PRESTO, I feel better! This is timeless, classic music, and is as enjoyable today as it was thirty-plus years ago. A big, long standing ovation for Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks!!!
