Commentaires (par Bill Pardo) :  « The band kicks off with a scorching version of « Evil », complete with plenty of slashing guitar work from McCarty and a rumbling, unaccompanied drum solo from Appice. It’s one of their heavier, most beloved songs and they do a fine job on it here, with Day’s powerful vocals rough & ragged and soaring over the top.

The catchy and quite bluesy « Bro. Bill » comes up next, always one of their more charming tunes, and the rumbling « Oleo », complete with it’s heavy blues riffs, slide guitar, harmonica, and beefy bass lines from Bogert, shows that at their core, Cactus were really a blues & boogie band with plenty of volume and fuzz. McCarty lays down a variety of tasty licks on the slow blues grind of « No Need to Worry », and the band even tackled their then newly released single « Token Chokin’ « , a sing-along country blues number that was rarely if ever played live, so this obviously was a very special occasion. The extended blues/boogie romps « Big Mama Boogie (Parts 1 & 2) » are a lot of fun, showing Cactus at their playful, jamming best. »
