  • Fair. Kinda muddy, but definitely worth the money if you can find it. - Richard Saunders
  • All tracks are good quality, with the live tracks being soundboard or radio recordings - Phil Dennison
  • Essential. The Agora concert appears in better quality on other bootleg CDs, but the Capitol Radio recordings on the Rhino re-issue were taken from a worn copy of this bootleg (hence the heavy noise reduction). But these sound amazing on this LP, so that makes it necessary to get an original copy of on vinyl. - Lemonjello
