Plan9 Music

The band sounds a bit flashier than it did in the studio performances for Squeezing Out Sparks, but to a man the musicians charge into these songs with an impressive enthusiasm, and Parker's vocals cut like a switchblade. This release of the full show also includes a number of songs from Parker's earlier albums, and while the material from Sparks still dominates, this release delivers a satisfying sampling of material from Parker's first four studio efforts with some extra sweat and muscle added for good measure. Live in San Francisco 1979 might seem a bit redundant for loyal fans who already own Live Sparks, but this album is inarguably more satisfying and an excellent document of an excellent band at the peak of it's powers.
