Leave it to the Japanese to cut through the mystery about why this album has not been available on CD in the United States. It was and remains a terrific, high-energy romp of a record. Warren was at his charasmatic best and the band just flat cooks. Stand In The Fire delivers everything that a live album should -- an honest rendering of a remarkable concert.

Further proof that life in unfair, CD versions of "Stand in the Fire" and "The Envoy" remained unavailable while CDs of many lesser talents were prevalent. Thanks to the Japanese for what American companies couldn't seem to get accomplished. This is rock music at its finest. RIP Warren.

Warren Zevon at his best. CD is a replica of my original tape. Which is how I like my re-releases. Live recordings always “feel” better and often sound better too…

||a live album worth having|
The exceptions, such as The Who's Live At Leeds and The Allman Bros' "Live At The Fillmore East" and James Brown At The Apollo, tend to prove the rule that live rock and r'n'b albums are often disappointing and barely worth a listen or two, containing either technically excellent but nonetheless unrevealing or unexciting note for note approximations of better studio versions (ala The Eagles) or too much crowd noise, too many sing-alongs or too much pointless jamming to fill up the time to justify the ticket price. With "Stand In The Fire," the sound is a bit too bassy even with remastering, but his back-up band is excellent and the performances are both high energy and particularly revealing of Zevon's desire to balance his often bizarre lyrical subject matter with straight out entertaining. Mostly, he succeeds and the bonus cuts in this instance are a valuable contribution that will, like the album itself, bear repeated listenings.
