1978, from the North American tour that was conducted between September to November, 2 Disc title of fan must listen, must-have, which was almost completely recorded in a high-quality audience recording the Kansas City performances of November 3rd. Tour at the time of live that approaching in the second half, as at the time of mono audience recording the energetic stage that survived the fat, you can enjoy a very excellent sound. This is a sound feel the distance from the stage, but the minute, neat stable and has been recorded in the sound, there is no perfect nor less separate sense of muffled. In addition because there are no noisy crowd around to, you will be able to Kikiiru to stress without playing. Freshness of the sound is also good, there is no doubt that the tape close to the master and is obtained by digitization. When I first heard, you might receive a somewhat small impression, it is a pretty good sound, very easy to listen will also help you to reproduce in very good feel part of the delicate sound. Set is typical of this time, there is no surprising song selection, as compared with the September New York performances of which was recorded in the press board, is quite replaced, the song you are not playing in MSG first day, She’s Love Crazy (Tampa Red), Mr. Tambourine Man, It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue, The Times They Are A-Changin ‘, Girl From The North Country, Where Are You Tonight? (Journey Through Dark Heat), To Ramona , many with All I Really Want To Do, reverse to the have not song that amount often doing the MSG concert, and each is a far from listening. In any case, it has become the contents of the fan must listen, must-have anyway sound is good.


1978年、9月から11月にかけて行われた北米ツアーより、11月3日のカンサス・シティ公演を高音質オーディエンス録音でほぼ完全収録したファン必聴・必携の2枚組タイトル。ツアーも後半に差し掛かった時期のライヴで、脂の乗り切ったエネルギッシュなステージを当時のモノラル・オーディエンス録音としては、非常に優秀なサウンドで楽しむことができます。ステージからの距離を感じさせるサウンドですが、その分、端正な安定した音で収録されており、籠りも少なく分離感も申し分ありません。加えて周囲に煩い観客がいないので、ストレスなく演奏に聴き入ることができます。音の鮮度も良好で、マスターに近いテープをデジタル化したものであることは間違いありません。最初に聴いたときは、ややこじんまりした印象を受けるかもしれませんが、かなり良質な音源であり、非常に聴きやすく、繊細な音のパートも非常に良い感じに再現してくれます。セットはこの時期の典型的なものであり、驚くような選曲はありませんが、プレス盤に収録された9月のニューヨーク公演と比べると、かなり入れ替わっており、MSG初日に演奏していない曲は、She’s Love Crazy (Tampa Red)、Mr. Tambourine Man、It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue、The Times They Are A-Changin’、Girl From The North Country、Where Are You Tonight? (Journey Through Dark Heat)、To Ramona、All I Really Want To Doと数多く、逆にMSG公演ではやっていない曲もその分多く、それぞれが聴きどころとなっています。いずれにせよ、とにかく音が良いのでファン必聴・必携の内容になっています。
