Deane's Comments (rates this release 2/5.0)
One of the few Moonraker releases that is really disappointment.

Dale's Comments  (rates this release 2.25/5.0)
This set is one of Moonraker's few "misses" The sound quality is rather muddy, and the show is nothing special. In fact, there are only two songs that make this worth owning (HCUDCMA and Mr. Happy) and How Come U Don't... is ruined for the most part by the crowd screaming, and some girl singing almost as loud as Prince on parts of the song. I would only recommend this set to completists.

Mike's Comments  (rates this release 2.5/5.0)
Although this is an anniversary show there's very little special about it - in fact it is pretty much a straightforward Jam of the year/Love 4 one another concert. Bits of 'Flashlight' turn up in 'Mr Happy', and the 'Santana medley' is played in full, but neither make this a better pick than, say, Freedom train. Good, but nothing to rave about.
