3 stars A great sounding collection of live solo Harper performances recorded at various locations in England in 1990/91.

As then wife Jacqui was both Harper's touring engineer as well as his studio recording engineer, the sound quality of this long disc once again maintains Harper's string of impeccable sounding recordings that originated in the nineteen sixties. Standout tracks include the rarely played Decedents of Smith and his centerpiece song form the Jugula album Hope, that's played with a deft backing band that includes his son Nick Harper on bass and old friend, cricket star Foxy Fowler. All three nail the song after only minimal practice before the gig. Other standout tracks include the chilling Frozen Moment, also from Jugula performed solo by Harper, along with the perennial's Highway Blues and The Same Old Rock which feature Roy's talented son Nick standing in for Jimmy Page on both tracks.

Live Harper albums are a bit of a rarity, especially ones that sport sound as good as this one. 3.5 stars.
