Deane's Comments (rates this release 5/5.0)
Moonraker has released the most bootlegged Prince show of all time. Generally this show is considered one of the best live bootlegs ever released. 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 Would Stand All Time, and Rave Unto The Joy Fantastic

Dale's Comments  (rates this release 5/5.0)
Moonraker's release is, in my opinion, the best of all of the releases I have seen or heard of this classic show. As usual they do an excellent job at giving you an all around great package. As for the performance, this is the best live performance I have ever heard. 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.
