Deane's Comments (rates this release 5/5.0)
This is perhaps the most bootlegged Prince show of all time. The sound quality is excellent and the show is superb. Prince was relaxed and having a great time, performing three new tracks: People Without, Still Will Stand All Time, and Rave Until The Joy Fantastic. This show is the must have of all Prince must haves. NO collection is complete with out one of the excellent releases of this show.

Dale's Comments  (rates this release 5/5.0)
Very few live shows even come close to this release. None have surpassed it. Prince was simply magic on this night, and though other shows may have come close none have recaptured the chemistry he had here. Prince starts the show with a nice instrumental jam which goes into a fabulous remake of DMSR. Next comes one of the best cover songs Prince has ever performed, a beautiful rendition of Just My Imagination, with a classic guitar solo to bring it home. Just when you think it can't get better Prince calls for them to turn out the lights, then proceeds to light up the stage with a new song, People Without. The song was more or less an improvisation that would only be played once, and therefor only witnessed live by a little over 400 people. What I wouldn't give to have been one of those 400 in that magical room that night. If you only buy one live show in your life, buy this one. You will not be disappointed
