4 stars My favorite of the Treasure Chest series. Who can resist the story of anyone (in this case Rick Wakeman) turning an occassion for anger and vexation into an opportunity. Wakeman turns a poorly promoted and lightly attended concert in the UK into a brilliant evening ... a concert for a dog named Oscar, who is sitting up front at the concert. And that is what Wakeman fans want this album for; the stories and Wakeman's interaction with the fans and Oscar the dog. The way things are arranged you get the feeling of actually being at the show, unlike most live albums where there is a clear sense of distance from the actual event.

The song list tells you what to expect and all are delivered as brilliantly as a one man show could hope to deliver them. A nice addition to any Rick Wakeman collection.
