4 stars Something to remember about this tour. First, it was the first time I saw this amazing band. I had dabbled with piano up to that point (being all of 16). This concert was the first time I really understood how a keyboard could fit into modern music. The second is for those who critize the sound quality of this. ELP always were on the edge not only musically but with technology. This tour was presented in QUAD! BSS was recorded and released both in stereo and quad so they tried to reproduce that on tour. I think the sound quality fails while mixing down to stereo, (Hence the panning effect as someone else stated) I remember the concert was very full sounding. The songs are played well although ELP was never perfect in concert you excused that because they were so good in other areas and lets face it, who could be perfect every night playing nearly a three hour set at the frenzy at which they played. So those who critize CP for missing beats or the occasional laspe by Emerson or Lake its just sour grapes. You would kill to have a chance to do what they did. This is a good album and good presence of the time, 1973.
