Aside from 1969's epic Kick Out the Jams, this could be the next best live MC5 recording that’s legally available. As the title suggests, these 11 songs were cherry-picked from various performances during the end of the '60s and the dawn of the '70s. And from the one-two punch of the opening “Kick Out the Jams” to the nearly 12-minute epic closing medley “Starship/Kick Out the Jams/Back to Comm," these recordings illustrate how the band soundtracked the death of flower power and the birth of punk rock. These selections were sourced from three different shows, including a German TV performance, a 1969 concert at Detroit's Grande Ballroom, and a 1970 show in New York City. Somehow the murky fidelity is constant throughout. Yet when you hear this version of “Teen-Age Lust”—which eclipses the studio recording in energy and musicianship—it’s easy to look past the lo-fi tape hiss. Other notable gems include “Tonight” and an extra-punchy version of the soul-rock powerhouse “Shakin’ Street.”
