Review by ghost_of_morphy
4 stars Ricochet has said it all. Read his review for the nuts and bolts of this album.

But I'm going to disagree and give this four stars. This is an extremely good performance by Rick solo. The classics that Rick interpret on his own sound great (well, except for Guinevere/Lancelot and the Black Knight, where Rick really misses having musicians backing him.) The off the cuff reinvention of the concert is impressive (even though it is restricted mostly to the in between song stories) and the spur of the moment improvisation Classical Doggy in the Window absolutely amazes me.

Great sound, great songs, great performance. It's hard to ask more from a live album. 4 stars. But keep in mind that this is Wakeman "live" and "solo." Without those provisos, 4 stars would be overrated.
