This is a fair to good audience recording of a very good concert. It is hard to tell what the source might have been for the CD's but cassette tapes seem to be a possibility. The sound is very muddy but improves throughout the concert (except for the very end where there is a loud humming noise). It is pretty much mono sound throughout although there is a little bit of stereo towards the end. There is an audible hiss and the microphone seems to have been overloaded during louder sections especially with the bass pedals and toms. There are clicks between tracks as well as breaks where part of a track is missing at the beginning. Also big chunks are missing in the middle of some tracks. The packaging seems to have been home made using a color copier and has an incorrect track listing.
The crowd however is amazing! They sing along with most of the songs (even Manhattan Project!) and you can tell they are overjoyed to be at this concert. Luckily there's almost no annoying crowd noise like people talking or clapping over the music. Also the boys put in an excellent performance. It's almost like they are making a concert video or something! They are really tight on songs like YYZ and Xanadu. Geddy sings the lyrics like he means it (even Tom Sawyer!) and throws in some bass solos. Alex plays some great solos and even Neil alters the studio version a bit on tracks. Sometimes it's hard to tell who is having more fun, the band or the crowd. Surprisingly, I even enjoyed listening to Tom Sawyer with the crowd singing along during the chorus. Listening to this one makes you proud to be a Rush fan!    (1999-04-01)
