This is from ELP's 1992 'Black Moon' tour and contains a mix of classic songs from the 70's and from the last studio output 'Black Moon'. 'Karn Evil 9' and 'Tarkus' in a shortened version? Not a good idea! Nobody can understand why the concert is compressed to a single CD - a big minus!

The sound quality is good but the performance is not so dynamic as in the 70's. The mystic ELP moments from the 70's are not coming back. 'Knife edge' lacks of inspiration. The piano solo 'Creole Dance' shows Emerson at his height. The new songs 'Paper blood' and 'Black moon' are working good. I consider also 'Pirates' and 'Finale' as some of the better tracks.

So my summary is: unfortunately not enough to be essential.
