3 stars I don`t think this is crap. The recording was done in a Stadium, so is not very good, because it lacks the acoustics of other venues designed for music concerts. The mixing is also not very good (it was done by Emerson). But I like these live versions of "C`est la Vie", "The Enemy God", "Knife Edge" and "Pictures at an Exhibition". Emerson`s "Piano Concerto" is also good, but the sound of the orchestra is marred by the bad acoustics of the place. "Knife Edge" has a very good orchestra arrangement, the same as "C`est la Vie". The end of "Pictures..." ("The Great Gates of Kiev") was played with a lot of energy. The best version of this concert to buy is obviously "Woks Live". This one L.P. album called "In Concert" is out of print. This concert was recorded during E.L.P.`s last tour of the seventies. They used the orchestra and the chorus for some days, but they had to do finish the tour without the orchestra and the chorus because it was so expensive to be on the road with them.
