"This ranks as one of the ten most disappointing CD's I have ever purchased (in a collection of over one thousand). It's mostly my fault; I did not do enough research. I've been looking for this disc for several years and always assumed it was the Gram Parsons Burritos. Instead it is the post-Gram group, which is a very average country rock band. This is a way below average effort. Recorded live and badly, it offers booming bass, distorted highs, and even static (apparently from the amplifiers connections). The singers were not in especially good form either.If you're interested in this group because of the alt.country connection, go for Farther Along, a 21-song compilation of the best of the REAL Flying Burrito Brothers. Also good is GP/Grievous Angel, which collects two albums on one CD, and includes some of Gram's classic work with Emmylou Harris."
Not their best but still good

"Certainly, this is not the best live cd available from The Flying Burrito Brothers; it's probably the worst. Still, there are some interesting performances, especially on 'Waiting For Love To Begin'. Overall, though, this is really only for completists and real true fans. As for this last reviewer's comments...The Flying Burrito Brothers are indeed the greatest country-rock band, in all of their lineups. This is not nearly as bad as his review would lead you to believe."
No, it's not Gram but it's still better than any of today's

"If you're looking for Gram this isn't the CD for you obviously, however I thoroughly enjoy this somewhat "rough" sounding disc. In fact, this cd makes me want to be sitting right in front of a band like this at the local bar. Be sure to listen to some of the sample files before discounting this disc, you may be surprised that you actually like them in spite of the technical faults."
