4 stars This is by no means anything like earlier classic multi-album live sets, ALLMAN BROS."Fillmore East", THE BAND"S "Rock Of Ages" or YES'S "Yessongs", mainly due to the lack of improv and song extensions, but it still captures RUSH at the peak of their powers with gusto. I bought this album about 6 mos. after seeing them for the first time on this same tour in '81 and was pretty wowed by them. As I stated before in my "Permanent Waves" review, I pretty much ignored Rush through the 70s listening to fusion mostly. But after Waves and Pictures came out, I just had to see these guys and it was well worth it. I was really impressed on just how full their sound was for 3 guys. Not since CREAM has there been such a dynamic power trio of this caliber. Sound could be a little better on this disc, but's still a real kicker. Enough said. Recommended.
