Cactus – Live, Loud & Proud, a DVD released on 8-24-2010 by MVD Visual, is basically a compilation of new songs that the band played in various cities on their 2006-07 tour, with the reuniting of Jim McCarty, Carmine Appice, and Tim Bogert from the original late 60s-70s band but now with former Savoy Brown frontman Jimmy Kunes doing vocals and newcomer Randy Pratt on harmonica. The band had just released a new album, Cactus 5, and the sound and visual on this DVD are excellent (smaller squares and rectangles superimposed over the original footage to show us details at various points). As Jimmy Kunes sings out, “We’re gonna have some fun tonight!” and in the traditional sense of hard rock, their energy level is still unbelievable (having already been noted for this in their earlier years).
