This is an average audience recording. All the instruments can be heard fine but the recording has a hollow sound to it, but considering the age and the equipment available at the time it is a decent show. There is some channel fluctuation but nothing that last for more than a moment. There is also some slight tape hiss, again due to age. Seeing how this show has been digitally remastered I can't imagine how much hiss must have been present on the original tape. The band puts on a good performance, especially Geddy who does a little goofing off during Cinderella Man. The set list is excellent and something that is rather unique for a tape this old is that none of the songs have cuts in them. Overall a very enjoyable show that will fit in both a historic collectors list as well as the list of someone who only collects 'listenable' shows.    (1999-04-01)

Well, nothing a little EQ can't fix. This is a pretty good (and complete!) show from Sheffield England, but has a little "hiss" problem. I messed with the controls on my computer and got it to sound a little brighter so the hiss wouldn't be too much of a problem. (and it helped!) Ok.. the show's from 1978?not a DAT source and probably was traded a lot since it's a good show, so we can excuse the hiss.

Anyway, this is one of those "Farewell to Kings" shows that has some interesting things, Geddy seems to be using his keyboards a bit more as he sticks it all over the place (Lakeside Park now has a keyboard part!) The band is really showing it's "legs" as a live act, and they seem to be experimenting more on stage and having fun since they're a more "established" concert act. Geddy's seemingly in a talkative mood since he introduces each song, and they just play great! This is classic stuff! Overall this isn't a bad show to have in your collection, but I would love to hear the master source from this show!!!    (2001-06-24)

Another recording from the "Drive Till You Die" tour that captures the boys in the UK. The sound is pretty good, a bit compressed by you can still hear all the instruments clearly. The tape hiss would suggest this is an often traded show, but the best source I've found so far. The concert on a whole is very listenable, especially at high volumes. For some reason shows like this sound better loud than at low volume levels. The beauty of this show is that it is complete and unedited including the hard to find encore of Cinderella Man complete with some added emphasis from Geddy. The dynamic range and stereo separation overall have been increased during remastering to improve the listenability of the recording. There are a few AFtK tour recordings available, but this one is the best I've come across yet. If you're looking for a show from this tour, this is the show. 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)
