A dozen plus two tracks of progressive, hard rock that spans material from the Long Island trio's three Atlantic releases. By the time of Zebra's 1990 live release, their star had fallen from the success of their debut seven years prior, which managed to attain gold certification. The radio hits "Bears," "Tell Me What You Want," and "Who's Behind the Door?" are all included in versions that add little to their studio counterparts, and the inclusion of Led Zeppelin's "The Ocean" is so obvious it almost borders on self-parody. The band does manage to work up a good head of steam on "Wait Until the Summer's Gone," but Zebra's brief time in the spotlight was more due to the longing of music fans for anything even slightly filling the void Led Zeppelin left. Thus, this release was of little interest to most listeners.

Some people like live albums, some don't. If you DO like live albums, especially by versitle and talented musicians, Zebra Live is a must have. Intricate instrument and vocal harmony work, (as well as Randy Jacksons' B*lls to the wall voice) make this an excellent overview to one of Rock's most underrated power trios.
