A seldom rewieved live album, as I understand mostly sought after not for its quality but by Immediate completists to fill a hole in the label catalogue. To be honest that was the reason I bought it in the first place, but when I gave it a more or less dutiful spin home from the shop I realised it was more than just a filler. Recorded by an enthusiastic band before a loving and parttaking audience. Audio isn't the absolutely best I've heard from a period live LP, but good enough to let through some connection and giving a being there feeling most of the time. Not like the carefully adjusted and re-worked arena live albums released today...though if you ever visited a concert back then you'll get it. I like it mostly for the all over positive aura, well performed happy rock from a hard working combo. Of course it's never wrong to get a "Penny Lane" cover direct from the stage, or a well performed fast version of "Our Love Is In The Pocket", but it's mainly the atmosphere that saves it for me. Originally also issued in a couple of other European countries, downunder and South America. Japan "limited edition" 2009 CD (Immediate VICP 70115) came in paper sleeve with seven bonus tracks. Premiere UK had label as shown here and glossy fold/out cover. (YDÄ*) (LYBÖ*)
