4 stars Ladies & gentlemen put your hands together for SPOCK'S BEARD. Yes it is a 2 CD live album covering many of the BEARDS greatest tunes of all time. The songs are slightly varied and offer some real live energy. This album covers the musical highlights from 2 seperate concerts but actually runs like one fluid show and without any overdubs or unnecessary after mix touchups. Highlight for me is "The Doorway" which dips and dives into many new regions and even stars a percussion solo from Nick. Another big surprise is a very nifty version of GENESIS' "Squonk" which was played at Nearfest '99. Overall this is a superb collection and the only bummer is the lack of liner notes and photos (oh well I guess you can't always have everything).
