3 stars I can hardly understand why this concert was chosen to be released. The track-list is the same as "Paris - February 2nd 1981", which is a good thing, but with a much lower sound quality due to poor source recording.

The band is pursuing its 80-81 european tour. Some tracks have matured: "Calymba Caly", "Silver Scale / Horns of Doom", and the trippy and never released "Thermal Inversion" made one of his first appearance. I would have liked to have these compositions featured on the coming "Exit" album. The whole perfomance is more balanced and less redundant than in "Preston - November 5th 1980".

For now on, the playlist on the tour will essentially be the same, with a changing piano improvisation in the first set. Thus I can sum up my impression concerning this release with a simple advice: for better sound quality, go for "Paris - February 2nd 1981".

Modrigue | 3/5 |
