3 stars Pleasant, but ultimately unnecessary live record

Well played, well recorded versions of well-done Tramp classics. Supertramp is composed of competent musicians that are most at home in a studio, so this record is mostly rehashing the studio versions of their songs. A quick glance at the track running times will tell you none of the songs have been significantly altered or expanded. At most, Davies will occasionally extend some keyboard dazzling (though he is clearly no Emerson) or Helliwell will get a bit more time to flex his sax (though he's no Mel Collins). Furthermore, while the sound quality of this recording is quite good for a live record it sacrifices Supertramp's trademark crystalline production that makes their studio albums an absolute delight to hear.

A good recording nonetheless, but clearly best suited for fans who want a slightly fresh take on Supertramp's staples.
