3 stars This live release - it's over half an hour long but only three tracks, so might be better thought of as a long EP rather than a full album - is sourced from a radio broadcast from Caravan's 1974 North American tour. It's a perfectly solid selection of Caravan tunes, but at the same time between Live at the Fairfield Halls and Caravan & the New Symphonia we're already pretty well-served for live Caravan material of this general vintage - indeed, all three of these tracks are represented on both of those releases (if you go with the expanded version of New Symphonia - which I personally recommend).

As such, whilst this selection is perfectly pleasant (and the version of For Richard here is magnificent), this is rather inessential. I certainly wouldn't think it's necessarily worth tracking down on its own unless you simply can't get enough live Caravan - and if that's the case, then you'd be better off saving your pennies for the Who Do We Think We Are? boxed set, which not only includes this but also has a range of other, arguably more interesting live treasures to offer up.
