Good album but you needed to be there for the 'Live' performances,

My title says it all. A good album which shows off the group's vocal expertise. My only gripe is that, if the producers want to add in 'live' performances, why put in ones that the listener needed to be there to appreciate what was going on. The final track in particular (Higher and Higher) was a real 'audience participation' version which left a listener out in the cold as to what was going on. In a similar vein, the 'Coral Island' section of the track 'Coral Island/Summertime' is lost on someone purely listening (if you, like me don't like it, and you use iTunes, set the track to start at 2.44 ['Get Info; Options; Start Time'] and the track commences just as 'Summertime' starts (which is brilliant by the way). The other 'live' tracks are fine as the listener can appreciate them as well sung tracks.
I would have given this 4 stars but for these tracks.
