2 stars This is one of too many live recordings today that could use a few overdubs (it is an arena they are playing in, not best acoustically suited for loud music, combined with energy and performance required can result if a few notes be missed or not played insync).

Who cares if it isn't exactly "Live", so weren't KISS - Alive, Judas Priest - Unleased in the East, UFO's - Stranger's in the Night, etc

Even Duke Ellington's monumental Live at Newport in 1958 had overdubs.

This recording is dull and lifeless, adding no dimension to the studio recordings.

I saw them in concert the time period these recording were made, it was not the band's fault as they performed with energy and brilance.

Just poorly recorded and mixed in my opinion.

Better of buying BG's single previous live cd.
