Deane's Comments (rates this release 3/5.0)
The sound quality of the live show is not great. The music is fine, but the voices are muffled and hard to hear. The 23 November rehearsal is 10 and a half minutes long with average sound quality. The inclusion of OutaSpace and 777-9311 is great to have as these are rarely performed (then at least). An odd thing about this release is a mirror image in the booklet that states: 'watch out 4 city lights the best live recordings in rock'. City Lights was released not on Raiders but Superhero Records, hmmmm.

Mike's Comments (rates this release 3/5.0)
This was a one-off show played in front of a small crowd following his MTV European Awards performance. The set is very close to those of the European shows of 1995 with only a handful of exceptions. 'P control' was played live for the first time here and it's very funky. 'We march' also made its debut as a set closer - it's a very long version drawn out by improvisation. A great show overall with some good bonus tracks too.
