Prog Reviewer
3 stars "Living Proof" was an album released without IQ's permission during the 80's, with a very poor sound, which was later reissued with a little more quality.

However, the sound still leaves a lot to be desired, especially on Peter's vocals, making this live album of interest only to the staunchest fans of the English band, since the live versions included here hardly outperform their respective studio recordings.

Despite everything, it still retains something of that mythical aura that this album had during the time when it was believed that it was the last thing Peter Nichols was ever going to record with IQ. Hopefully, history proved us wrong!

Best Tracks: the songs from the excellent 'The Wake' sound especially good here. Widows Peak is still the best song of the group's first stage.

My Rating: ***

The Crow | 3/5 |
