1 stars First of all I must start by saying that Tommy Bolin was an excellent guitarist, when he was on form he was up there with the greats, and came up with some incredible solos. Unfortunately, this release captures one of Bolinīs performances where he wasnīt on form at all, making tons of mistakes and making it difficult for the rest of the band to keep in time and help pull him through the concert.

I had this album on vinyl, which in all honesty, should never have been released. This has to be the saddest release in Purpleīs history. Bolinīs drug taking at this time was common knowledge, and it was probably the reason why he couldnīt get his act together on this live album.

Extremely poor.
