Yeah, another Numan live album. The only reason I’d want this is that it features a few tracks from my treasured Numa Records period of his career from 84-87. One of my fave tracks from this period, “Call Out The Dogs” turns up here and is most welcome but you still have to wade through material that is on every other Numan live album. You know the tracks.

And let’s face it, Numan is hardly the most compelling of live performers! And yet he has almost as many live albums as studio outings. Methinks he likes to squeeze the faithful a bit too much! This outing gets 2 stars because half of it dates from a more contemporary period that I quite liked in Numan’s millieu.
