This is coming from a huge KC fan, but it's not like they made gold everytime. This particular show is amazing, I would give anything to have been there. Let's just say I was gona be on a stranded island and for some strange reason could only pick one KC album to take with me, this would be the one. If I could only bring one album at all, I'm not sure if this would be the one, but it seriously is in the consideration. Sometimes I really like repitition, and it's this version of "talking drum" that blows me away everytime. Not a difficult song, but the way these guys perform this progression is just magnificent and powerful. "Fracture?" pure genious, and played at the top of their game. This lineup is the best lineup of KC hands down (but dont get me wrong, all the lineups in the 70''s and late sixties produced wonderful albums......ITCOTCK, Larks, SABB, Epitaph to name a few) This is a Prog Must, an essential to ones collection, and a necessity when one is talk to about spectacular live albums.
