1 stars Yet another bootleg which was chosen to be released officially by itself or as disc 4 of the Beat the Boots I compilation. This performance was part of the show from 12/5/74 at Notre Dame in South Bend, IN. This bootleg has some historical significance in that it was celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Mothers yet it is performed by a different incarnation of the Mothers.

I really like the songlist from this performance and it sounds like it was a lot of fun. It's really too bad that there isn't a better recording of this concert because the sound is extremely bad, especially on the first half. Vocals are muddled and the entire sound is unbalanced. The best sound is from FZ's solos on Oh No and More Trouble Every Day. Any casual collector should stay away from this one unless you are just interested in the value of it. Completionists only.
