4 stars This was recorded 5 years after their comeback in 1992 and that is a good thing in my view.Whereas they sounded bit 'stiff' on their Black Moon comeback tour in 92,here they have regained a certain amount of fluidity and confidence in their performing and it shows through well.You can argue that this doesn't get anywhere near their 1973 heyday and I have to agree ,but it's still a great show.The ELP set list is very special and they do all the peices here justice.What you don't get are extended instrumntal improvs like in the classic years(excepting the encore track Fanfare..) BUT for some that could well be an advantage.The band are as tight as they can be with Lake and Palmers bass/drum offering particularly good support to Emerson who delights in showing his keyboard skills.Don't be put off..if you like ELP then you will enjoy this!
