One of the few existing live documents of the 1st incarnation of Howlin Rain. What HR mark 1 lacked in polish it more than made up for in heart, blood, guts and go for it as gloriously displayed here in throat shredding vocals and maniacal guitar wailing. TRUE GRIT!!! A classic of the Howlin Rain live catalog. Audio Quality: Hi-fidelity stereo audience recording. Taped at the Mercury Lounge, 6/15/2006.

Very good live event. Sound quality is excelent. Hypnotisch geiles Schlagzeug, phänomenale Gitarre, heisser Bass, Leute nicht warten zugreifen, auch Germany braucht EARTHLESS und das unbedingt!!!! antagonismus

The one time I got to see Comets on Fire was on the 2006 tour surrounding 'Avatar,' an album that felt less manic and out-there than 'Blue Cathedral.' But like Grateful Dead before them, the live show was something else entirely, a cliff-dive into the brain-damaged, psychedelic abyss. Lars Gotrich

Spent some time checking out Ben's 'Hexadic' system (more successful intellectually than in guitar playing results in my case!), so these early electric SOOA tracks were found at a very apposite moment and have an interesting contextual connection to the later work.
Rough and ready maybe but totally absorbing... John Cratchley
