Customer Review

on 29 October 2010
This is imho one of the greatest concert recordings of all time - and I have a large number of legendary classical, jazz, country and rock live albums to compare it to.

These songs come from different phases of Joni's brilliant 1970's career, encompassing folk, rock, soul and jazz, but on this performance they are all given a jazz-rock fusion makeover by a stellar line-up of Weather Report alumni and associates including the late but legendary Jaco Pastorius (bass), Pat Metheny (guitar), Michael Brecker (saxophone), Lyle Mays (keys), Don Alias (percussion) and the Persuasions (backing vocals).

I would even say that for some of Joni's most important songs (including Amelia and Hejira) these have become the definitive versions in preference to the original studio recordings.

Finally, if you bought the first (single disc) CD release, you can confidently throw it away and buy this re-mastered 2CD version, which boasts dramatically improved sound quality and restores the omitted tracks from the original vinyl release (mostly importantly Black Crow & Free Man In Paris).
