'LIVESTOCK' is one of greatest GUITAR ORIENTED fusion records ever made. It is INTENSE; it is BIZZARE; it is A BURST OF ADRENALINE LIKE NO OTHER.
JOHN GOODSALL's superspeed, medula-oblongata-shredding solos (especially the one on Euthanasia Waltz) have NEVER BEEN TOPPED in terms of OVERALL INTENSITY and ESSENTIAL COOLNESS. Brand X was on of Al DiMeola's favorite bands; it's easy to see why--their music has all the intensity and virtuosity of Al's without any of the schmaltzy, melodic sentimentality plagues the same Al.
Next to Jaco Patorious, PERCY JONES was THE main influence on bass players in the 70s and 80s. His awesome, fretless technique is UNIQUE--full of deeply thick science-fiction blasts of fluidity from outer space. NO ONE sounds like him. Monster bassist and Jaco replacement Victor Bailey, is only one of many who have acknowledged the man as a seminal influence.
But all that TECHNICAL EXCELLENCE would mean very little if the compositions were weak. Not a chance! Every track on 'LIVESTOCK' is fantastic. 'Nightmare Patrol' establishes an alienated, futuristic mood before soaring into the stratosphere on Goodsall's solo; the aforementioned, incomparable version of 'Euthanasia Waltz' takes things to an even higher intensity before we ease into the ambient space funk of 'ISH;' next, the surreal, dreamlike and hypnotic 'ISIS MOURNING' slow burns into a melting ecstacy before we are suddenly blasted into the electrifying mayhem of 'Malaga Virgen.' This tune features both PHILL COLLINS and KENWOOD DENNARD on drums. They raise up a storm. The last two minutes of 'MALAGA VIRGEN' are probably the most INTENSELY BREAKNECK ever put on tape. You will need a fire extinguisher for your fried brain, so keep one handy.

This CD is so good it is unbelievable. If you play an instrument, you need this CD. The way these guys play changed the course of my musical life. These guys made me realize that there is a higher plane of musicianship that doesn't get ANY airplay. Brand X is an acquired taste. Too complex and busy for the faint-hearted. Each player is a monster. Most people have no idea how good Phil Collins is on drums. This CD is a clinic for any players out there, no matter what instrument you play. All the BrandX stuff is like this, but this live album is special. You won't believe its live, and you won't believe how unknown it is once you've expierienced it. Guaranteed

In British Jazz fusion realm, this band is the most famous in Japan,because of Phil Collins.When I first heard this,I was almost shocked to death.The members of this band are all highly skilled musicians.If you buy this disk, you will surely experience the most powerful dynamics of this band.I recommend this to all of the fans of JazzRock ,because this one has a hell of magnetism which pulls you into the deep electric jungle of BRAND X.Take this ,Taste this ,Throw yourself into this thrill !

I loved this album. If Brand X is an underrated group,then 'Livestock' is an underrated live album. Sure,there are live albums from the 70's that deserve the praise (Jethro Tull's 'Bursting Out' & Peter Frampton 'Comes Alive') but here is an album that could have been in those ranks.
"Nightmare Patrol" is decent,dark and fun. And this version of "Malega Virgen" really ends the set with a bang. "Isis Mourning 1&2" are more quiet,allowing a bit of a breather..not to say its not good. "Euthanasia Waltz" has an energy that equals the studio feeling of spontaneity, but for me the highlight is "-ish",a bouncy jazz rocker that sums of the feel of the whole album: they're still having fun. By the time the last release of the 'original' Brand X came about in the early 80's..its obvious the spark had gotten dimmer.
My only complaint with this album,other than the way some tracks fade out instead of ending to the cheers they deserve-is that there weren't more songs. If only the record label had the confidence to invest in the group,we might have been given a 'double' album of live material!? I'm sure there's someone who would go thru the tapes and put it together. Someone modern,noisy & affective.

I heard Phil Collins live on the radio in the 70s and was astounded when he jammed along to a recording of and so to F introducing me to brand x. I bought vinyl copies of several brand x albums subsequently and livestock was my favorite. Buying it last week was s trip down memory lane but this is above all fantastic prog rock. Inventive, fun, engaging and just has that groove

The mid '70's were the glory days of progressive rock and jazz rock fusion. Bands like Gentle Giant, Soft Machine, Gong, Passport, and Novus were creating what can now be recognized as hostorically important musical contributions to the rock and jazz lexicon of the 2nd half of the 20th century. Brand X shines noticably in this ecclectic night sky and particularly this album, Livestock, which captures these superb mucians' collaberative effort at their best. Great compositions, wonderfully creative and techincally brilliant soloing and a telepathic muiscal interplay between the musicians make this a great performance by one of the best prog-rock/fusion ensembles of their time.
