4 stars I love live records, back in the seventies I used to collect them all, remember Grand Funk? and Deep Purple? Jeff Beck? even a few years back I used to play over and over "Bursting Out" for 4 or 5 weeks in a row. So I was expecting pretty good things from Camel, a band I specially like but let me tell you that this is not a good record. IMHO the tempo of the second CD it is not right and it is a letdown. Now I know why this band was never a big league player. Peter Bardens was a hindrance, he sounds so outdated with that organ. It reminds me The Doors. He was no Wakeman for sure, and add to the mix the voice of Latimer and youŽll have the whole picture. I strongly recommend to stay put with the superb studio records they produced. Sorry gals and lads.
