A below average audience recording. All of the instruments can be heard but the mix is dominated by the bottom end and is a little muddy. There is also a small amount of hall boom. Historically it is an important show. It was Rush's first ever appearance in London. You can tell that the audience was really into it. There are a lot of woo's, yea's and other exclamations to help punctuate the music. The band is also up for the show and puts on an energetic performance. Featured is the pre-release version of Xanadu and a section of The Necromancer. Overall the sound could be better but it is definitely listenable and certainly belongs in the collection of a historic collector.    (1999-04-01)

This is a historic performance for Rush. This is their first concert in London. And the band seems really fresh for the occasion. But that isn't the only first the crowd is treated to this night. Rush debut's Xanadu in a pre-release form. This tour is a warm up for the recording of the "Farewell to Kings" album. You can really hear the influence of keyboards on this album and the departure from the "AtWaS" tour that is now over a year long. The progression in the year since the tour started and this English mini tour is remarkable. All the songs sound fuller and more a musical art form. This also marks the final performances of "The Necromancer" and the extended solo version of "By-Tor" which in future tours will be segued into Xanadu. The fidelity of this show could use some help. It is a distant audience recording, not the worst overall, but the worst of this short UK tour. Worthy as a historical document, but not a first choice for something from this short tour. Actually I have a couple of other recordings from this mini-tour that weren't even worth the tape they were copied to! As with all Digital Reproductions recordings, it's only available via free trade and never for sale. Just visit the trading links section to find people that will gladly trade this recording for free.    (1999-04-01)
