4 stars This one is a rare find, a 'bit on the expensive side, if you are fortunate to find it. It appears to be taken from the "No Smoke Without Fire" tour, Recorded at Hammersmith Odeon, London On 25 November 1978 with the MK 2 lineup. The audio is very good, my only gripe is, that it is too short, clearly not the entire show. However if you combine it with the "Live in Tokyo" from the same tour, you get a decent length, close to a full concert. That one has a total of 5 tracks on it, 3 of which appear on this release as well: "The Way Of The World"; "You See Red" & "Blowin' Free". Despite doubling-up on those 3 tracks, it is still enjoyable to combine the two for one "more complete" performance, since the performances differ, after all they were performed on two different times and on different continents. As far as the performance is concerned, it rivals the "Live Dates 2" release, perhaps less polished, but that raw feel gives it even more appeal.
