"First time on vinyl live 1976 album linking pub rock and punk. Three bonus 1975 tracks. Ltd ed in red & blue vinyl. Eddie & the Hot Rods recorded live in France in May 1976, for the first time on vinyl and with bonus unreleased tracks featuring Lew Lewis -- in a limited red and blue vinyl 2xLP. Eddie & the Hot Rods are the missing link between high-energy pub rock and the punk explosion of the following year. They were quickly branded as part of the punk movement, but their roots were American rock'n'roll, and also owed much to Dr Feelgood, who were from the Rod's hometown of Southend. Three bonus, previously unreleased live 1975 tracks on Side 4 feature fabled harmonica player Lew Lewis - he left the band shortly after so Hot Rods fans will be pleased to find that these rare recordings exist. Vocalist Barry Masters died aged 63 in November 2019."
