3 stars Yet another of those albums Holdsworth never wanted released (rumour has has it he wasn't asked) and this apparently drove the wedge in, further separating him and Paul Williams (not to be confused with the American actor singer). This was originally the sound track of Japan-only laserdisc, which found its way initially onto bootlegs. It has live , good quality versions of tunes from 'Road Games', 'IOU' and 'Metal Fatigue', although outside the studio Williams' voice is rather weak. For its relative merits, go find the original studio recordings, and now with Holdsworth mellowing and tolerating release of live recordings at long last, check out "All Night Wrong" and "Then!", which have the Holdsworth seal of approval.
