Though fairly good sound quality, this CD has very slight breaks between each song that tends to spoil the feeling of a continuous live performance.

Tracks 9 through to 18 are all taken from Leftover Wine, so you get virtually the whole of that album, except for Happy Birthday and Peace Will Come. The sound quality is good throughout, but editing means the concert does not always run continuously with fade outs between some songs.
