I'd seen Patti earlier at a small 3-400 capacity club (The Plug, Sheffield) and the band was storming and playing on the back of the Trampin' album (which I consider one of her best). I was even given a copy of a show she played at Stockholm shortly after which was even better. Now abandonment seems to have given way to an almost reverential playing - was it the venue? Montreaux festival? It's well recorded and played (I love some of Tom Verlaine's squalls), but there seems to be no interaction between band and audience - it all seems just a bit too polite on everyone's part.
