5 stars If there ever was a live ELP album to get , this is the one.

Excellent sound quality and an extremely upbeat performance (we can hear Greg's enthusiasm quite often) AND his bass sound like never before or after... Here is the WHOLE performance (part of which was included in the long deleted "Mar y Sol" LP) remixed to its full glory.

In spite of being recorded in February 1972 , before "Trilogy"'s recording, we can hear an almost perfect rendition of "Hoedown"-the only thing being that the Moog intro upwards sweep is absent , maybe it was because it was incorporated later or there were technical difficulties-which was one of the rumours...

As for the other songs included, the fellow reviewers have done a great job describing them.

10string | 5/5 |
