Geetarz Comments: 

A poor recording of a poor performance. 

Sounds like it was recorded in somebody's shoe - and it probably was! 

Very "muffled" sounding, the vocals nearly inaudible, instruments nearly so, which in this case is a bit of a blessing as the band are just coasting through the show, very sloppy. 

Runs a bit slow to boot. 

EC sounds nearly comatose as he performs one of the most lethargic version of "Crossroads" I've heard to date. 

About the only good EC quip comes as he introduces the encore: "We'd Like to do one from our new album, it's called 'Further on Up the Albatross'." 

This one is only for the die-hard compleatists. Avoid.

Still, I'm not yer mum and it's not up to me to determine what you may and may not have, so offered here for historians, collectors, archivists, and completists.
