Hallelujah! The Holy Grail on CD

"Six stars! In 1975 the vinyl version of the album (rare as hen's teeth even then) was my introduction to Nils Lofgren, and has remained one of my top ten albums of all time ever since.
Odd tracks from this have filtered out on compilations, but finally we have the full show (or at least the original radio broadcast - no bonus tracks, so I assume there was nothing else in the can). No matter. This is rock'n'roll perfection, the version of "Like Rain" here being arguably Nils' finest recorded moment.
Can't wait to get my hands on this.

"I waited with great anticipation for this cd which was not available to the loyal fan until recently. The title cut has always been one of the best rock songs ever recorded. When I received the cd, I was quite surprised to see that there were only 7 cuts and one of the cuts I expected to see was missing: Moontears. This song was played with Back it Up and Beggar's Day on the King Biscuit Flour Hour on WNEW-FM years ago. In addition, WRNW, played the authorized bootleg on an early Saturday morning Nils focus. What happened A&M? Are we to wait for the sequel? I feel that this was not the right way to release the cd with any song missing! Has A&M done Nils wrong, again?"

the cd not having it. come on nils. the show was filmed also. where's the
