3 stars Not a bad album, but not a patch on Welcome Back My Friends... Greg Lake's voice seems to have gone the same way as Brian Wilson's and generally ELP are showing their age here. Features Keith Emerson's worst ever solo on "Lucky Man". Worth buying for the versions of Bitches Crystal and Tiger In a Spotlight, also the two medleys at the end are quite good. The sound is a bit sterile and there is no information as to when and where the recordings were made. Interestingly, I think the extract from Karn Evil 9 that was used on Jim Davidson's Generation Game is from this CD.
