Deane's Comments (rates this release 3/5.0)
Great packaging but less than impressive performances.

Dale's Comments  (rates this release 2.5/5.0)
These shows are really nothing special. I should have been at the show in San Antonio, but that's a long story and I'm still bitter over it. ;-) If you are looking at the tracklist and saying to yourself, "but there are some cool song titles I have never heard him play!" just forget about it. Most of the San Antonio show is performed by Doug E. (tone deaf) Fresh, and the other ones (i.e. The Gambler) are more or less just a verse sung by the crowd. The packaging is excellent, as we have come to expect from Sabotage, but the sound quality of this release does not live up to what we have come to expect from them. I would recommend filling other holes in your collection before picking up this one.
