The show is one of the best from this Vegas season and the attack on stage a rare incident and if the sound is o.k.- what I am guessing - cause it`s from a better source the disc is recommendable. Definitely above the cheap no name products we have gotten these days. Keep on Straight Arrow.

I wonder if the picture is from this show??

Straight Arrow certainly tries to come up interesting shows (like Chaos in College Park). Nice label

That is a brilliant cover. Ftds should do the same. Type is very cool 70's style.

Ftd releases should also have liner notes,since its a collectors label,as for this release,more intersting than the releases that have came out lately,but still vegas,but still nice artwork and overall presentation!
