4 stars I agree with the Frippster on the fact that , If a performance brings back memories, repeat when necessary and try to evoke the feelings from that moment(or something like that). I saw this incarnation on June 29th 1984 in the Mann Music theater, Philadelphia, a few days before this was recorded, and was BLOWN AWAY!!!, especially by the "Entrance of the Crims". This is an almost perfect copy of the gig I saw ( I even had a very rough recording for myself which was recorded on my Walkman, so I could compare). They could definitely peel off paint with their rendition of "Red"!!! I highly recommend this to KC fans from the 80's incarnation. Great sound , and , although I really dislike the painter's work , which Bob insists on using ( I do NOT agree that it represents the group's spirit), there's plenty of liner notes.

10string | 4/5 |
