2 stars This live album is taken from ELP's Black Moon tour in 1992 and NOT from their heyday (1970-1974).For that reason this has to be approached with some caution.In truth much of the energy and dynamism of this famous trio had long gone by this time.Carl Palmer sounds a bit sluggish on the kit,Greg Lake's voice is as deep as any blues singer (not good for prog IMO) while Keith Emerson struggles to remind us that he was once the best keyboard player in the world.It's not a bad album though.The sound is 'clean' and the band are tight.But these are the bare minimium you would expect to find.The only reason I can give for buying this is the extended version of 'Fanfare For The Common Man' which beats the original studio version but otherwise you have inferior versions of classic ELP tracks like 'Tarkus' which can only really be of interest to collectors/fans.
