Source: stereo soundboard (multitrack)

Sound quality: *****
Performance: ****


a wonderful source (from multitrack) very similar to Nasty Music release, even if Empress did not tweak the sound as much as in The Great Lost Live Album by Nasty Music.
The show is not a great performance; anyway, it has its own jewels: the rare (for the period) playing of How Many More Times and the Mellotron Solo before Thank You.

Packaging: gatefold sleeve
