3 stars Double live Supertramp album is in fact the collection of their greatest hits (to time). Every band's fan will have many songs he loves to hear, but is it enough for double live album be recorded?

I can't say nothing wrong about this work, but at the same time there are not too much reasons for purchasing of this album. I really like Supertramp work from 70-s, but after listening of this album I decided, that I prefer their studio work. Whenever familiar songs sound there at best as copies of studio recordings ( and often studio versions have much more better arrangements and sound, what is not strange at all), and there almost absent drive or energetic, so beloved on good live releases, It's difficult to find a reason to have this album (unless you're collector).

For sure, sound quality is acceptable, and it is a pleasure to listen band's early catalogue once again, but too bulk and not very inspired musicianship doesn't add pluses to band's reputation.

To be honest, I can recommend good compilation instead of this live work.
