Without going through the laundry list of recordings I have collected over the years like this, let's just say some CDs you enjoy for the production and the shimmer; some CDs you enjoy for the songs and the content. At best this is a fair to good technically speaking recording. It falls flat in production to anything you'd buy from the last 10 years (or more). But it is a powerful, up for the game stage performance from my personal best line up of a band with a grand tradition of great music and dynamic shows. I am convinced as a very young teen I was at this particular show, and what I hear in my mind's ear (& see my mind's eye) was a loud lush seering guitar attack, smokey powerful vocals, and about 15K kids who ate it all up. The percussion was absolutely thundering. Sadly due to the era's recording tape and technology you cannot truly experience this with the quality of this recording. Not that it is bad, but even with the best possible upgrade to digital sound, beware..... BOTTOM LINE: this is a 5 star show, on a 3 star recording.
I would recommend this to a friend
