4 stars There are no details about date and venue of this live-recording. However, it has a rather good sound-quality and represents those songs you can often find on Gentle Giant-live-recordings. Rumors, that some tracks were mastered at slightly the wrong speed are simply not true. I got this CD for 4 ?, but it is much more worth. Highlights on this album are of course the ballad "Funny Ways" with its incredible vibe-solo and "So Sincere" with that outstanding drum-bash right at the end that Gentle Giant's vocalist Derek Shulman called "percussion insanity". The only thing which blames the album is the fact that the songs are not in the right order. The order should be:

1.) Proclamation 2.) Funny Ways 3.) The Runaway 4.) Experience 5.) Knots 6.) The Advent Of Panurge 7.) So Sincere

Anyway, this album is good and it deserves 4 Stars.
