4 stars This live album has a very good recording and mixing. The Alan Parsons Band included some former members of The Alan Parsons Project (Powell, Elliott,Bairnson) . The "Project" word was not more in the name of the band because Eric Woolfson wasn`t in the band anymore, and as Parsons thought that Woolfson was a very important part of that band, he called his new band "The Alan Parsons Band" (but my CD only says "Alan Parsons" in the cover). The live versions of the old "Project" songs are played very good. Andrew Powell, who did the orchestral arrangements for the "Project" played keyboards in this album,with Parsons and Richard Cottle playing keyboards too. So, the keyboard arrangements and "orchestrations" are similar to the studio versions. I prefer the new lead singers versions to the old songs. Both singers are very good and better than Woolfson, who sang some of these old songs in the studio.In the U.S. the CD was released some months later than in Europe and it included 3 new studio songs ("When", "Take the money and Run" and "You`re the Voice"). The 3 new studio tracks are good. Elliott sang one of these songs ("Take the Money and Run") and he sang it well. This is a very good live album.
