Great performances that brought the curtain down on their inspired 'black & white' period but totally hamstrung by feeble recording - it sounds like you are hearing the show about a quarter of a mile away from the venue(s). If this album had the kind of sweaty, close-up live feel of such albums as the re-issue of The Who's 'Live At Leeds' or Humble Pie's 'Rockin' The Fillmore' it would have been an absolute belter. Great outer cover art but I always thought the inner gatefold picture was lame - some live pics would surely have served it better. I notice this hasn't been given the remastering treatment - perhaps Eric Bloom and co. came to the conclusion that you really can't polish a turd...
