This was the second ever show that Rush played in Europe, at the start of a mini-tour before heading to Rockfield Studios in Wales to record A Farewell To Kings." The atmosphere of this show is just amazing; it features an early version of Xanadu, and a great version of BY-Tor And The Snow Dog segued into The Necromancer. This CD is from a very low generation copy of the show and the quality is really good, especially given that is was recorded 20 years ago. I think this was helped in part by the fact that the Free Trade Hall is an old Victorian building with very good acoustics and also much smaller than the sort of US tramsheds that Rush play today.    (1999-04-01)

What an incredible show!!! This is a very good audience recording, especially being 20 years old. All the instruments can be heard and the recording retains the power of the band. It is not flat. The audience is a little noisy, but I think it adds to the ambiance of the recording. It is mainly crowd noise, not just one individual screaming idiot. The set is awesome. Xanadu is in it's early, unreleased form. No hints, you'll have to get it to hear what was changes for the final version. By-Tor has the most intense jam I have ever heard Rush play. And then the crowning moment, yes, part of the Necromancer live. This is without a doubt my favorite show. This version of the show is not quite as good as Sign Of Eth but a little better than the cassette copy I have. It does have some bad points. It is not the complete setlist. It is missing a chunk out of the middle of the show. Also, it contains gaps. I guess Syrinx Productions has not upgraded their software for gapless recording. To over come this, they indexed the show into three big sections instead of individual songs. This results in only two gaps instead of 5 or 6. Overall a great CD but at the cost of a incomplete set list and gaps.    (1999-04-01)

This is a great show but... I've read reviews that say that Geddy had a cold when they did this show and that's why his voice sounds deeper on this recording. He may well have had a cold that night but the real reason why his voice sounds that way is because this recording runs about 7% too slow! If you compare Hallowed Halls to Sign of Eth, which is the same show, the difference is obvious. I'm surprised no one else has noticed or mentioned this.    (2001-06-24)
