I’ve read comments that the sound, especially on the CD isn’t up to the standard that you’d hope for. This can be a problem for live recordings and especially those that go back many year.
I like the Climax Blue Band a lot but this isn’t the place I’d start my collection which would be FM Live if I wanted traditional blues rock or World Tour if I wanted to pick up on their popular success.
