To begin with, as far as I can see, nearly half this cd is of previously released material. Songs from "Unreleased Gold and Silver" and the superiorly recorded "Maiden of the Cancer Moon - originally on Psycho records. Also some from a bootleg called "Smokin Sound" [ which is available here at Amazon, or was last time I looked!] That said its nice to hear "Pride of Man" despite the huge drop out in sound after Cipollina's solo. All of this is pretty well recorded, I have to say. Not bad for tapes of the age they are. Duncan is too loud in the mix, as another viewer remarked. However one can appreciate this if one remembers how Duncan used to live in the shadow of Cipollina. Of course the reason that is was that Cipollina had "that sound" which distinguished him from so many other players of that time. Duncan, great player that he was, could not compare to that. Its widely know too that Cipollina's amplification live was a fearsome beast, over powering the Welsh band Man so much they had to turn him down on the live album "Maximum Darkness" when Cipollina toured with them. I'm not knocking Cipollina, who I love to this day, I'm just trying to get some perspective about how Duncam must've felt. Not helped too by Cipollina referring to Duncan as "his rhythm guitar player". Although Cipollina had a great sense of humour, so was probably trying to be sarcastic!
Overall my advice would be to but this. Its better than most of the other live cds by QMS released recently, that's for certain.
