2 stars This bootleg (?) contains very good tracks and the songs are played with lots of enthousiasm and as expected the guys are very skilled. Especially the vocals are really great.

But.....

The soundquality is poor. It starts like it's from a cassette; you can hear the strain of bad cassette (as only old people can understand). But it's fun to listen to this live-album, but only once. It's not worth spending lots of money on, just to own it.

On the other hand the mix is very good (was this recorded for radio?). Too bad the overall sound is poor. I guess the original recordings are lost, and they found a poor cassette as a source. Anyway, I had fun listening to it, but I cannot recommend it.
