Very good performance, brilliant to heavenly guitar playing.

Stunning long versions of “The Bug” and “Cannibals”.

Nice instrumental “Hawaiian Lullaby” – a folk tune played by Richard on slide guitar joined by Guy and Glenn , very nice which also makes this bootleg a “must have”. (IMHO)

Great sounding recording!
The Electra Strings join the band on some songs.
Great to hear the rarely performed songs Vic and Ray
and a live version of the Hawaiian Lullaby played by Guy Fletcher, Glenn Worf and Richard Bennet.

Complete concert.
