- One track is missing - "Lipstick Vogue" was played between "Accidents Will Happen" and "Watching The Detectives."
- "I Stand Accused" is missing about 20 seconds at the beginning, but begins on the first lyric.
- "Radio, Radio" ends abruptly, and the encore break is edited out.
- The back cover has the name of the school as "Lehigh Community College."
- '0' - Joachim Weisbrod
- The sound quality is far from perfect (a bit treble-heavy, which at least makes the keyboards stand out), I'd rate it better than 'not that great', and the performance and set list make the disc fairly worthwhile. The opening track is a bit tinny and distorted, after that it improves but stays 'raw'. A must have for the EC fan. This concert follows within a month of the 'Bramlett incident' on a tour that was cut short. The guitar parts on (I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea are worth hearing, and in general his playing is jagged and vicious - Albert Steg
- Performance: 8/10. Sound: 7/10 - John Steffes
