4 stars This was originally released as a single vinyl album with 3 of the tracks (8-10) on an additional 7" EP. Here the band took the studio originals and turned them into something different. The sound quality is excellent, one of the best I've heard on a live album, and the playing is extremely tight. Songs such as "Fair Exchange" and "Blazing Apostles" work far better in a live setting, "Ships in the Night" is given a kick by being played at a much faster speed, the instrumental "Shine" is given a much longer workout and the guitar playing on "Adventures in a Yorkshire Landscape" is as good as any you'll hear. "Maid In Heaven" is perhaps the only song not improved on here, mainly due to the number of guitar overdubs on the original, but overall this is a brilliant live album and a must-have for Be Bop Deluxe fans.
