2 stars While I'm only giving this album 2 stars, this is a great buy for any serious Caravan and/or Camel fan. Although Richard Sinclair and Andrew Latimer are notably absent, Pye Hastings, Dave Sinclair, Andy Ward, and Peter Bardens (along with some others), put together a nice show.

The set list is made up primarily of popular live tunes from the two bands, but there's a few Bardens solo songs present. Highlights include the usual suspects: Rhayader, 9 ft Underground, Never Let Go, For Richard, and Lunar Sea.

Most of the performance is of course exemplary, but for me it just seems to be missing that "vibe" which made Camel's "A Live Record" and Caravan's "Live at Fairfield Halls" so good. Nonetheless, the record is definitely worth hearing, but only for fans. If you really want to get a good live impression of both bands, take a listen to the aforementioned live records, which are both 4 or 5 star albums in my book.
