Double Live Gonzo!

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
As exciting as they were, Ted Nugent's first three albums lacked the sonic punch in the gut of his outrageous live performances, something readily proved by 1978's classic Double Live Gonzo! Both Nugent and his band are in top form, yielding a fierce performance of their numerous mid-'70s classics. Mega-hit "Cat Scratch Fever" makes an obligatory appearance, but it's the songs from Nugent's self-titled debut which truly stand out. "Just What the Doctor Ordered" is damn near perfect, and the band really clicks on extended jams through "Motor City Madhouse" and the fantastic "Stranglehold." A consummate showman, Nugent also unleashes a number of hilarious, motormouth ...

A consummate showman, Nugent also unleashes a number of hilarious, motormouth stage raps on "Baby Please Don't Go" and "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang" before offering the definitive version of his early classic "Great White Buffalo." In the year of the live album 1978, this one's about as good as they come.

    Underrated--one of the best rock albums ever

    Ted is wild, and I think that causes him to be underrated. I've been a guitar player for almost 30 years, and I'm still impressed by this album. The energy that comes through his playing is like no other. The amps are cranked up to 11. The guitar is barely controllable when cranked to the level he has it at, the feedback is almost waiting to jump out at you. When I listen to his playing, I actually start to visualize an electrical current--like a persistent bolt of lightning running through the strings. He uses that intentionally, too. If you hold a note on an overdriven guitar, and turn towards the amps at a certain angle, you'll get feedback that makes the guitar go from singing to screaming. Listen to "Stormtroopin" and you'll see what I mean. A lot of Ted's riffs are his alone. He doesn't play like anyone else. And on this album, you can tell that what he's playing is coming out spontaneously from his heart. That's what makes it even more exciting. You are hearing music of unmatched intensity being created, on the fly.
