It isn't often that a live recording captures performances better than the studio versions. This recording does that. With the exception of, ironically, Sultans of Swing, every other song is much better than its studio counterpart...but Sultans on this isn't bad, either! To my mind, this is the best live album of any band I've ever seen and heard...amp buzzes and all !!!
