4 stars A mostly good sounding earlier FC live album that features the incredible Sandy Denny back with the band a few months before recording the fantastic Raising For The Moon studio album. Standout tracks include a rare outing of Sloth from the Full House album that captures the band in great form and acts a rarely heard showcase for bassist Dave Pegg who goes absolutely prog ballistic on this and several more of the album's tracks. The only drawback is some murky sounding vocals from Denny on the first two tracks and the fact that, with the exception of Matty Groves, most of the songs are off of Denny's solo albums and causes the album to sound more like a Denny solo outing than a full fledged FC reunion concert. Still, it's a worthy addition to any FC collection as great strides were made by original performing guitarist Jerry Donahue to clean up and remaster the sound. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4.
