3 stars Uriah Heep broke the Iron Curtain and became one of the most regular rock band visiting Russia till now. Without doubt ,good for Russia.

Album by itself represents one of endless band line-up playing gold classic for hungry-for-rock russian fans ( in fact, it's one of very first Western band visited Empire of Evil). Some songs sounds good, some not too much. In all cases, Uriah Heep earlier live album (1973) is much more better. There you can find some songs sounding like originals, or trying to sound like this. No new arrangements ( ok, I don't think that some russian folk song elements used for filling the space between songs are new direction), nothing new at all.

All the recording looks as "anti-matrioshka" : russians well-known all around the world by producing and selling their "matrioshkas" to any foreign tourist at any possibility. So, Uriah Heep made their "matrioshka" - old product packed in new paper with fashionable ( at a time ) symbols on it.

Fully listenable, not too interesting and not too reasonable release. If you have early Uriah Heep concert album, or even just studio albums with the same songs, there is no reason to purchase that one.
