Geetarz Comments: 

This is the complete show, sourced from the officially unreleased VHS of the show, and remastered to give the best quality possible. 

It is worthwhile to have this version as well as the "radio mixes" such as "Class Blues" (Beech Marten) and "Wonderful Night" (Cuttlefish) not only because of the complete setlist, but the entirely different feel given by the differing mixes. 

The advantage to this, more "open" sounding mix is that you get a bit of that "dust off the amps" feel not found in close miked soundboards, such as the gritty ending vamp of "Lay Down Sally". 


There are two discrete releases of this title. The original, Catalog #3BR 120, is not to be confused with this release, Catalog #3BR 148. 

Even if you have "a copy" of this title, you may not know what version you have, particularly if it was obtained in trade, when the wrong artwork could have been substituted.

Overall, a personal Favorite EC show of all time, and as always ...
