The King Biscuit Flower Hour was a syndicated radio show that featured live performances from various artists, eventually gathering an archive of hundreds of hours of concert audio from various artists, often at the peak of their careers. They would tape during a regular concert, so it really captured the feel of the show, it wasn't a case of an artist being brought into a television studio to perform, like the Unplugged series; it was a more organic performance. This has given us some absolute gold material.

This particular show featured Billy Squier, a guitarist/singer/songwriter from Boston. Squier was a hard rocker who had a string of arena rock-type hits, perhaps comparable to Bryan Adams in style, at least in his early years.

Squier played most of his hits on this show, starting with Everybody Wants You. A crowd favorite, they all join in on the refrain. Audience participation is always a fun thing on these older concerts, it shows that the crowd is really into it right from the start. Later on is the rocker My Kinda Lover, a prototypical Squier song. It's a good litmus test, if you like this song, you'll probably enjoy the whole show.

My personal favorite is Lonely Is The Night. It's been noted that this song is similar in style to Led Zeppelin, and thinking about it, that's really true. But Zeppelin took their style from others as well, what matters to us if how it sounds, and this is a great bless rock tune.

Other standouts here include Emotions in Motion and The Stroke, another strong rocker. This leads into Keep Me Satisfied and the closer, Rip This Joint. These three feature a lot of really strong rock guitar riffs, and send the crowd home dancing.

Fans of Squier may be pleasantly surprised to find this show, and will definitely be happy with it. This was the early eighties, so if you aren't familiar with him, you might have to temper your expectations and keep the timeframe in mind. But it's a good rock performance, if you're curious about the artist, this is a good sampling of his work.
