Deane's Comments (rates this release 4.25/5.0)
A superb document of this period. The set has every song played during the tour and the packaging is excellent. The sound quality varies but, all in all, is very listenable. Includes a small poster and booklet. I like these multi discs sets that document an entire leg of a tour.
Dale's Comments (rates this release 4.5/5.0)
This is one of my favorite releases, mainly because of the content. The majority of the set consists of material from 'The Gold Experience, but it is also full of inspired performances of classic material as well as unreleased tracks like Days Of Wild, and Love...They Will Be Done. The sound quality is great as far as audience recordings go, and there isn't a lot of audience interference. The packaging is above average as is the case with most Moonraker releases.
Mike's Comments (rates this release 4.75/5.0)
A fine bootleg. The main concert is energetic and features several extras not played every night like 'Johnny', 'Funky stuff' and 'Sex machine'. It also has the best live version of 'Vicki waiting' around. If that was not reason enough to recommend this set it also includes more than a disc's-worth of other songs from several of the earlier Japanese shows, among them a rare performance of 'I hate U' as a complete song rather than a 30-second snippet or interlude. A great tour round-up that should not be overlooked.
