All Music Guide - Keith Pettipas
Larger Than Life And Live'r Than You've Ever Been, the second album by Crowbar, was originally released on the now defunct Canadian independent label Daffodil Records in 1971 as a two record set and achieved gold record status upon its original release. Repackaged on a single CD by the Unidisc label, this recording represents the best performances by Crowbar taken from a live radio broadcast of a concert held at Massey Hall in Toronto on 23rd September, 1971. This high energy performance by Kelly Captain Canada Jay and company features the band in top form with renditions of some of the band's best known songs from their debut album Bad Manors, some rock and roll and blues cover songs and a rousing ending with the band's biggest hit "Oh What a Feeling." Along with Crowbar, this recording features support performances by members of Lighthouse, Dr. Music, Everyday People and King Biscuit Boy. One of the best live albums to come out of Canada in the early 70's, Larger Than Life And Live'r Than You've Ever Been is a testament to the popularity and prowess of one of Canada's top blues rock bands and an essential addition any rock fans music library despite the recording flaws in the recording.Unfortunately this reissue by Unidisc does not contain any extra tracks or additional liner notes but the sound quality is considerably improved over the original vinyl format.
