Official Life:101 Proof
Released: Jan 1997
Fourteen live cuts and two previously unreleased studio tracks, Official Live offers the chance to hear what this incalculably influential band was like in concert. You get to hear that, yes, Phil Anselmo was just as much a badass onstage, pulling off the ultra-manly screams and emitting even more fist-clenched hate than on wax. And the band behind him wriggles and chugs with the unmatched command of true hillbilly metalheads. The best part is all this comes without the danger of getting stomped to death by any of the ten zillion scary Ruby Ridge types in the audience.
