1 stars I guess you had to be there: I am sad that this didn't remain a bootleg, as it kind of tarnishes my image of what this show actually sounded like. In the myth, they "went down a storm", and supposedly invented themselves as a supergroup at this concert. But the myth is just that: myth. I realize it has a historic component for the fans, but the sound is terrible, the moog is (mostly) out of tune, cues are missed, "Pictures" is atrocious, and the over-all feel is unimpressive. I give them credit for soldiering on in a professional fashion, but sadly, that is the best I can do.
