2 stars Such a shame that the sound quality is so bad. GG seem to have a lot of this type of release out on various labels. It is advisable to look up any GG cd that is not part of their official studio release before buying as some of these CD's are truly horrible. However there are far more good live recordings of GG than say VDGG as an example. So whilst I would not suggest you buy this CD, there are a few GG live sets out there that are worth paying for. Give this one a miss but seek out Under construction or the BBC recordings which are very listenable.

As always the material is first rate, and this is not the worst CD available, but even at its best the sound is not great or is badly mixed. GG are slowly gaining the sort of support they deserved, it is a great shame that some of the live CDs are of such poor quality, as they undermine this excellent bands legacy.

I will give this two stars as there are a couple of listenable tracks, but this is one for GG fanatics who have money to waste.
