I really am not the biggest fan of the live album. Never have been and probably even more so now I actually go to many gigs during the year. Get it wrong and it’s completely devoid of atmosphere and can just sound appalling and probably doesn’t “sell” what is otherwise a truly stellar live act. Get it right though (which in my view is VERY rare – much rarer than an act just getting the sound/atmosphere right on the night) – and wow!
I listened to this last night. If Mr Ferry still sounds and can deliver like this in a few weeks time at the Armadillo…I will be a very, VERY happy bunny!
