Even if you have all these tracks on CD, this is worth every penny,

Wow - you may have Der Kommissar and all the tracks presented here but you will not regret adding this to your collection.
I am not sure what tempo they cranked these up to, but boy they go at a hell of rate. I wish I had been there. Fabulous musicianship too - no bum notes I can hear.
The cutting in and out between tracks is dreadful as is the fading in and out of the audience applause, but you'll forgive them.
I never understood why they were not more popular at the time. They shared a Radio 1 session with U2 before U2 were really famous. I have this on Cassette! I do recall while waiting for ATF that this U2 band sounded jolly good. I also seem to recall that U2 were the "under-act" that night. The rest is history for U2 of course - to say they then eclipsed ATF would be an understatement.
ATF never really took off of course. But I guess they gained and retained enough popularity to make it worth releasing this. Lucky you.
