4 stars Third time lucky hopefully. This is the third time I have submitted this review only for it to disappear into the ether!Rough around the edges a bit like this very incredible live album. There is no shortage of quality material here and what is most appealing is the fact that the production is pretty awful hence the ' Absolutely Live' moniker. That is what captures the listener on this merry-go round of great live songs, surrealistic interplay between Morrison and the audience ( at times borderline insulting, justly deserved too) and poetic wonderment, all this mixed together with some healthy rough tasting whiskey and you'll be singing when music's over' until the cows come home. Highlights are ' Love Hides', ' Build Me A Woman' , ' When The Music's over', 16 minutes of laid back bliss and 'The Lizard', surrealistic abstract Doors at their best.
