4 stars A valuable edition to any Gentle Giant collection.

1st, - the sound is good to great, certainly not of bad bootleg quality of some other Gentle Giant recordings released - think a little less quality than Live at the King Biscuit Flower hour

2nd - these are probably the few live recordings from the Giant for a Day and Civillian lps they, made - like their other live recordings, they are a bit different (faster) so one can notice in a positive manner in the added difference.

3rd, - you get some other recordings of the critically underrated Missing Piece, which clearly showed how quality the song writing of Gentle Giant was - even if it was not done in a progressive rock format - the same applies to the Giant for a Day and Civillian lps, but the Missing Piece (in my opinion) failed because of the ecletic nature of Gentle Giant, where if recorded by any other prog band with mainstream tendencies, it would have been considered their finest moment.

it does not rank up their with Playing the Fool and King Biscuit, but is not of a bad bootleg qualit y of other recordings, plus having to listen to very rare performances gives it a 4 rating
