4.0 out of 5 stars odd but wonderful, 20 Mar 2013
I can only echo what has been previously written about this album. It's a 'fan's' record. Don't buy if you don't own the albums it references. But... if you adore the 70s Queen, more than the stadium band of 1980s then this should be for you. Despite these caveats I have listened to this a lot since i received it, and love the slightly harder sound of the earlier tracks, and the 77 session is worth the cost alone! Also, the sound is not quite all that you may want, I listen to a lot of live albums so don't mind.
What chance of a fully official early period live album? Plenty of source tapes exist.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Junkies Rock ut, 28 Mar 2012
The album is without doubt loud, if you are still wanting the Trinity session, this is not it. However, it's the sound of a band having fun subverting their image & sounding much as they do at some of their larger gigs.
I have seen the band many times & in large(ish)venues like Shepherds Bush Empire with a large bar that never closes there is no market for the really quiet stuff. Throughout their career there have been loud songs even loud albums; 2001's Open is probably the most Rock, before this, but the quality of the songs remains high.
The intent of the Nomad project was to make 4 very different albums.
I like this a lot & would it as their best since 'One Soul now'… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Make the best of it, 27 Nov 2009
Yes, there are ommissions there always are.
However, compared to other albums the sound is tremendous & it is hard to ignore Stills' & Young's solo careers. Everyone is always moving forward.

Yes the bits of live BS I have heard are astonsishing (Young's still missing 'Journey Through the Past'has some) BUT, its what there is & its terriffic stuff.

It took the Beatles years to take the journey that BS took in about 18 mad months. Something this mad was never set for the long haul & I would rather bands flowered & died in this way than today's carefully controlled marketed releases.

I have owned this since release & listened to what is there & not missed… Read more
