Unlike the homonymous CD Edgar Broughton Band* - Live Hits Harder, where Terry Cottam gets a thank you for nothing special and John Thomas for "Guitars and sore Ribs", on this LP they are credited as musicians on stage.

Recorded live at Oldham Technical College, Newport Agricultural College and the Rainbow.

One of the most overlooked bands in music history. EBB have delivered superb contributions since late -60, this records proves them right: Best On Stage. The classic 'Evening Over Rooftops' has never sounded better, with great guitar-work and a steaming rythm-section. 'Freedom' has a rough-edged sound and is maybe the winning track on the album. The acid test; the more you listen the better it sounds! Highly recommended.
