5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Collection, 14 Mar 2014

You only need find the MP3 version ( for some reason its not attached but you can easily search) and listen to the MP3 samples - you will discover that it is a fine sounding recording. Lou was in his prime at the time the show was performed and the both the set list and the ambiance of the gig are very special. If you love Lou and his music this is actually a welcome reminder of what a great performer, composer and arranger he was.
