3 stars I don not agree with Pedro: this is not Roxy Music's best album. But still worths the price and can be viewed as a souvenir of Roxy's first, formative years, before the 3+ year hiatus they took shortly after this release. The track listing is impressive (among others, "Out of the Blue", "Pymarama" and "In Every Dream Homes a Heartache"), but I must say that studio versions of al those songs are better and I strongly recommend that casual listeners check out for compilations or the original albuns. The major problem with this album is The Sirens irritating background vocals: they almost ruins "Both Ends Burning". These girls were gorgeous, and they should be at the album cover - but definitely not singing! If you're not a Roxy Music aficcionado, but want a good Roxy Music live album, buy 2003's "Roxy Music Live" instead of this one.
