3 stars I don't like the mixing of this live recording and the choice regarding a few light songs by Lake as well, but as usual the best keyboard and drumming solos are performed here. you can listen to the resumed suite from "Tarkus" and the remarkable Carl Palmer solo too (even though after a so long career it's becoming just a little bit tiring as for its reproduction repetitively in the course of 20 years.); while Emerson is involved with the transposition from a famous jazz composition by an Argentinean Pianist, which is delightful and so much rhythmical as well, considering also the complex harmony of such track!! The "Karn Evil 9" suite is too short in the present version, as it has been reduced to its intro only!! But apart from this consideration, I like their final jam sessions within "Fanfare for the common man" . after all it's one of the last live performances by ELP before breaking their project definitively, and in spite of a few defects, it witnesses the end of an historical period.worth checking out, but it's not so exciting!!
