Anyone who cans this album for it's occasional sound engineering flaws, hasn't listened to the versions of The Indifference of Heaven and Poor Pitiful Me on this disc. They're spectacular. To the true Zevon fan, this is a very enjoyable listen, and while the acoustic steel guitar sometimes overwhelms the vocals, there's alot of good material and it takes you back to this tour.

Yes, this is a live recording. Yes, it may not be a good live recording....however, it still allows listeners to get the feel for Zevon's live performances and the extended guitar work that is a trademark. I liked it, even though the words on some songs were a bit muddy. But come on! I'm sure you already know all the words. Not for the first time Zevon listeners.

Outstanding live album. Maybe I'm biased because I attended two of the concerts from which material was taken, but I think this album provides a clear sense of Zevon's genius. His passion comes through brilliantly on this disc. It's not flawless -- some of the sound quality is a bit rough, and Zevon's occasionally intricate lyrics are mumbled rather than clear -- but it's a must-have for any serious Zevon fan.
