Intensities in 10 Cities is a second live album by Ted Nugent after the big success of Double Live Gonzo.
What’s unusual about this album is that the songs featured don’t appear on any earlier Ted Nugent or Amboy Dukes albums.
The story is that Nugent was testing new songs out live and played about 20 on the 1980 tour and picked out the 10 that were best received. I’m sure that his shows had plenty of the fan’s favourites included as well.
