4 stars While I agree with the other reviewer's assessment of the performances, the quality of both the sound and the image are really not that good. The '75 material is very bassy, and the vocals are frequently incomprehensible. Worse, the transfer is sloppy - the image is marred at several points by dirt in the film gate, and it hasn't been white or black balanced at all that I can see. The studio performance looks better (yes, it is clearly edited together from three different sections), but the sound is tinny with that god-awful electric piano and the Farfisa drowning out the Hammond through most of it. I'd say as a document it's valuable and enjoyable - the '75 performance especially so, the '71/2 less so because "Lighthouse Keepers" looses some from less-smooth transitions, lack of a second vocalist, and thinness in the last section - but be ready for it it be a little rougher than others have said.
