Comments (rates this release 2.5/5.0)
Once again Optimum has released a beautiful release with
average sound quality. I know that recently we've been spoiled by the soundboard
stuff coming out from other companies. A few years ago I would have been amazed
by a release like this, but a number of companies have raised the bar. This is a
fun aftershow, again with Larry Graham stealing some of the spotlight. The War
is performed for about 10 minutes. Larry provides some vocals on Hair.

This is pretty good compared to a lot of recent aftershows.
Even though the sound quality isn't fantastic, it isn't too bad either.
Aftershows are often harder to get great copies of, with a few well known
exceptions. ;) This one actually benefits from a rather lack luster crowd, but
not a similarly lack luster performance necessarily. Optimum may not be on par
with the 2 "Big Boys" yet, but they are improving, and have come a long way
since Face Down. At least I 'hope' they won't slip back that far again.
