performance is great...not awesome


vocals, guitar and keys alone make it 4.5 sound
BUT when drums and bass kick in the total
sound gets muffled some what.

Recording: Audience microphone - 3 stars


too much chatter...the brighton crowd seems to not be in it
so much at the beginning
eventually at the end of the gig they are.
wish i was 'back from the future' to tell them
'finish your drink...get up to the front!'


overall i'd give this a 3.5 - the only bummer is that #3 Rejoice fades out
too early! AND #4 An Cat Dub comes in too late (maybe a minute in!)
[ come on taper...don't you know you're taping a legend 2B!!! ]
