4 stars This is an excellent live album. It's not quite up to the standard of A Live Record (what is?) but it has some excellent tracks and the band are in top form, including 3 keyboards players (sadly Richie Close died soon after recording this). The highlight is the wonderful, sophisticated Fingertips, containing a superb contribution from Mel Collins on sax, but all the album is consistently good stuff. The vocals are superbly handled by Chris "Rainbow" (really Chris Harley, Runrig's producer!) and Pete Bardens does a guest spot on organ. As ever, Ton "I don't fly" Scherpenzeel shines on keys and the rhythm section is tight as a Camel's bum in a sandstorm, but Latimer's guitar steals the show as ever. He's a virtuoso. 4.5 stars really. Definitely worth buying.
