Sound Quality: A
Good mix – all instruments are well seperated, each part being very clear. Does distort slightly in the latter part of the recording, but only a slight glitch.

Performance Quality: E
Ian is worse than at Reading in places, Maddix is terrible, sounding clumsy, being out of time for half the performance, going too fast for the song. Squire makes blatant mistakes. Sounds very rushed, like they want to do the gig and leave ASAP. On Love Spreads, Squire plays at a different pitch to Mani and Ian, and Ian starts the second verse of Daybreak straight away! Ian sounds a bit out of his head actually – at the start of Tightrope, when he is starting to sing, he sings “You should have…excuse me”, and begins coughing.

Why should I get this bootleg?

To have what is possibly the worst Roses gig ever. At least when they played the shambolic gigs in 1985 they were amateurs. That excuse wasn’t there this night.
