This is one of my favourite live albums of any artist. The sound quality is excellent (warm / fullsome with plenty of welly in the bass pedal and synth dept.) The performers are all on top form, the set list is quality and each rendition seems to add a little 'something' to the already extant studio versions. The last two studio tracks of new material is a slightly odd change of vibe but at least they can be easily avoided (as they're stuck at the end!)
