I waited with great anticipation for this cd which was not available to the loyal fan until recently. The title cut has always been one of the best rock songs ever recorded. When I received the cd, I was quite surprised to see that there were only 7 cuts and one of the cuts I expected to see was missing: Moontears. This song was played with Back it Up and Beggar's Day on the King Biscuit Flour Hour on WNEW-FM years ago. In addition, WRNW, played the authorized bootleg on an early Saturday morning Nils focus. What happened A&M? Are we to wait for the sequel? I feel that this was not the right way to release the cd with any song missing! Has A&M done Nils wrong, again?

I've had the original A&M vinyl LP (Back It Up!! Nils Lofgren Live An Authorized Bootleg, with the paper label glued to a plain white LP jacket) since finding it in a Boston record store in 1978. The songs on this CD (and the CD that's available directly from Nils' website) match the LP, note for note. If I'm remembering my musical history correctly, the Back It Up!! album was released to radio stations in late '75/early '76, shortly after A&M released Nils' self-titled, debut solo album. The songs here are mostly from that debut, give or take a Grin song or two. It would seem that A&M didn't include, "Rock and Roll Crook", on the original LP because, if included, Side 2 would be more than 27 minutes long. In those days an LP side was not longer than 15-22 minutes or so. Or perhaps it could have been the pre-song banter and Al Kooper introduction that kept that song off the LP, but we'll probably never know the real reason for the omission. The one thing you really need to know is that this is a classic high energy performance from Nils and it's an amazing album that no fan of Nils Lofgren should be without. You'll be glad you got it here, or direct from Nils. Either way, Back It Up!!, is a must have and a welcome addition to any music collection. And, by the way, if you want the whole show that includes the missing, "Rock and Roll Crook", Wolfgang's got it.

I remember when this show was recorded. I had a friend who worked for KSAN in the SF Bay Area and I used to get tickets for these live shows at the Record Plant in Sausalito, CA. Two of the shows I attended stood out as being, as one reviewer put it, "Holy Grail" type shows. First is this one...Nils Lofgren in 1975. What a show! The other is Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers in 1977 (if you can find the full show of that one...yeehaw!) I remember sitting there thinking how good this band was and then remembering that Nils had played piano on After The Gold Rush. Anyway, I ended up with the show on cassette and played it on a constant loop for years. Then a party one night destroyed a bunch of my tapes and with it...a treasure lost...or so I thought.

Then one day with the advent of the Internet, I found a download of this show. I have the full show which includes one song that this omits...Rock 'n Roll Crook. This show has always been and will continue to be one of the best live performances ever. Goin' Back and the finale Beggar's Day, especially the jam toward the end of the song, are nothing short of spectacular! Download this true masterpiece & enjoy some great rock & roll from a great artist. This is as good as it gets!

Fabulous live set by Nils. "Back it Up" is a rock and roll classic. If you can find the studio version, snag it. Out of print. (Live version here.)

The music is really good, but the sound quality is mediocre. It's too bad that this is the best they can do with a recording from 1975. Now, hopefully they'll remaster (and do it well) Night After Night. I'd like that, as this CD didn't cure my desire for a high quality recording of Nils Loftgren in concert.
