BRITISH LIONS Live At The Old Waldorf, San Francisco 1978


This excellent Angel Air archive release brings a 1978 radio broadcast from San Francisco back into your consciousness to give you a heaping dose of hard-driving, rock ‘n’ roll swagger that classic rock fans will be eager to sink their teeth into. (September 2010)

…tons of rock ‘n’ roll energy, great songs like ‘One More Chance To Run’ and ‘Break The Fool’, powerful guitars, goofy early synth sounds, and the solid rhythm section of Overend Watts and Buffin… (September 2010)

…captures the band’s talent and energy…

Classic Rock Society (October 2010)

It’s good to hear a professional recording of this great band in such good quality… (October 2010)

… the band barrel through first album highlights propelled by Fisher’s rampant keyboards, Major’s Beck-charged leads and one of the greatest rhythm sections in rock ‘n’ roll…

Record Collector (October 2010)

…a no-nonsense British rock band …with enough raw texture combined with just enough playing and production gloss to make it worthwhile on real stereo systems of the quality to which TNT-audio readers aspire (November 2010)

…not only captures a band that sound hungry and totally convincing, but illustrates just how strong the post Hoople era was for these musicians…the British Lions were truly an enigmatic live force to be reckoned with.

Fireworks December 2010

The band crammed a great deal of musical activity into their relatively brief existence and this hitherto unreleased live CD captures them at something approaching their energised best…

Kevin Bryan, various regional papers (January 2011)
