What a blistering “live” album Rock the World is and what an apt title. The lead guitar blazes away from one tune to the next. I guess this long play was recorded during a concert in 1980. I think I would have enjoyed that concert very much. 
I love a good recording of a good band in concert and this is a good recording of a good band in concert. Air guitar enthusiast should get off on this release….by…rod45 …~

0hmygoshohmygoshOHMYGOSH…. You don’t know my surprise ultimate delight, when an unexpected package containing this arrived here at KOTJ Central (just as I was wrappin’ up the log!) from The Man himself … I tell ya, my brothers & sisters in rock, it was a joyous occasion … my rock & roll hear started dancin’ doubletime & all but cartwheeled across my jam pad … i had all but given up on ever seeing this stuff I used (after hearing “teasers” from this gig ished on various hard-to-find records in the ‘80s, I’d urged Terry on more than 1 occasion over the past 14 years to get this out-OUT-OUT so that the world could dig these supremely awesome, with sounds & experience The Jammeister live) … it’s a brand-new-issue 2LP live set recorded in Florida in '8O when Terry was at or near his peak as an Almighty Riffmeister. Trace the timeline yourself from his records listed here, by Criteria (AWESOME ballsy, heavy guit sound, the best of all his records!) on a night when Our Hero was hittin’ on all cylinders. If you’ve heard the live cuts on the “No Exit” & “Blastin’ Thru” comps. & the “Mr. Strange” 12", then you KNOW what the hubbub is about, as all of that material is included here–PLUS another 5 cuts/30:00+ unished 'til now (incl. song never even ished as a studio cut). In all, 9 cuts/77:00 (figure out the Jam Quotient fer yourself!) Title cut= killer, intense, smokin’ 14:00 guit-led instro; awesome 17: 00 (!) “You Will Be Loved”; extended versions of “Mr. Strange”, “Bottom Line”, & “Child Of The City” … Not one of those live LPs consisting of carbon copies of the studio versions; Terry takes these tunes to another level, w/extended versions & mucho jammin’. If I were limited to one descriptive phrase (I know, I know–it’s kinda late fer that, at this point!) But, that’s cuz the excitement level on the my jamroom’s rockometer just got pushed outta the red zone & into the neighbor’s yard!! Then it would be: “Jammin’ his brains out” …he jams almost non-stop like A Man Possessed … fingers flyin’ up & down the frets, coverin’ more ground than a fat man’s shirttails… rippin’ out incredible licks … playing as if there were no tomorrow … as though he thought this would be his last-ever gig on Earth & he thought he could ignite the world with his passion before the power within him explode & propelled him into the galaxies … the antithesis of clueless guitar wankers w/ their “pigsqueal” licks who’re fulla “technique” but whose cookbook pages are blank when it comes to combining fire, power, & passion into the awesome majestic technique that is hardrock at its best. It’s beasts like this that separate the contenders from the pretenders in the hardrock sweepstakes. If I was allowed to buy 1–& only l–record this year, then this baby Just might be it….~

The 2-LP Rock The World set, released by Akarma Records in 1998, documents a 1980 concert in Orlando, Florida that was made up of songs from Terry’s 1980s and onward albums. Take the descriptions I gave about the live tracks on the Rock Force CD and know that that is precisely what this ENTIRE set is about. I have to believe audiences at these shows were left drained, catatonic, and wholly, blissfully satisfied. The album is available for digital download, but vinyl junkies should try to track down a copy because it comes housed in a beautiful gatefold, with thick-as-a-brick colored vinyl (one red and one lime green), and a poster…..~

This is the first release of this ultra rare live material from Terry Brooks and Strange. You get two high quality LPs, which are green and red, a 50 x 70 poster, and colored pictures of Brooks performing inside the gatefold sleeves. 
Brooks reminded me of Ian Hunter with his corkscrew hair and shades in place. He plays one mean guitar on “Rock The World,” which was recorded live in Orlando, Florida in 1980. You will get a real good taste of what he sounded like on the four sides offered here. The one drawback was his overuse of the echo on his voice. On just about every song, he used that effect and I cannot figure out why because he proves what a great rock voice he has towards the end of the recording on “Dream” and “New York Connection,” minus all of the big sounding effects. I guess you can attribute it to the overkill factor and his efforts to make an impression on his audience, which he succeeds in doing regardless. 
He appreciated Hendrix and emulates his hero on many occasions during the course of the concert. The inner sleeve of the LPs has a quote from the great one as well. If you have always appreciated guitar pyrotechnics and psychedelic blues tinged rock you will have a good time spinning these platters….~
