2 stars This CD of the Glass House Records-Label contains two live recordings: One was recorded at Münster, Germany, 5.4.1974 and the other one was recorded at the Spectrum, Philadelphia, USA, 10.10.1975.

The sound quality variegates from song to song. Actually, there is just one song that has a real bad sound quality: School Days. The other songs are well listenable.

It's nice to find a few songs on this CD which are not often represented on other live-recordings/live-albums in such an acceptable quality. These songs are: Prologue (I was amazed that this song was even rockier than on "Three Friends"), Nothing at all, Plain Truth (with an outstanding violin-solo), In A Glass House, School Days and Cogs in Cogs.

For Gentle Giant fan's like me this album may raise you a smile and it may make you happy to hear some stuff that is hard to find on live-CD's. But if you don't know Gentle Giant, you better start with the original Gentle Giant albums. But Gentle Giant-enthusiasts will get their money worth. No doubt.
