3 stars This is the "classic" ELO of their first 3 albums live. As the years went by, ELO got poppier and poppier, and any semblance of prog that they had was long gone. This is the only live recordig of the band that I have heard so I have nothing to compare it to quality wise. I really wish the sound had been better on this release, though. The "hits" are here: "Showdown", "Roll Over Bethoven", and a cover of "Daytripper". Unfortunately, more would have nice from ELO II or NO ANSWER. I would have loved to hear a live version of "In Olde England Town". This is not a bad record by any means, it just comes up short in sound quality. 3 stars. A good live record for ELO fans. Others may want to hear their 1st three studio albums.
