"I always hold my breath when ordering these type of releases. By that I mean the old recordings dug out of the vault many years passed. This is a very nice surprise indeed! Sound quality is very good and the band is smoking. A very good "Hot City Symphony" live. I've been waiting for that since I saw SAHB perform it on Rock Concert many years ago. Nice addition to the catalog."
To Be Continued.......

"The two-CD set is essential for SAHB fans and is an excellent starting point for those wanting to hear the iconic performance artist and his band as they were delivering hot shows across the United States during the winter to promote the album "The Impossible Dream."
Recorded for radio broadcasts, the hour-long sets - mastered from the original tapes - and are from the incredible December 9 show in the (Cleveland, OH) Agora nightclub and the Electric Company (December 14) in Dallas, Texas.
The Cleveland show finds an emotional Harvey thanking the fans for their support and promising that the band will soon be returning to the city. The set lists are slightly different, but both gigs include a sizzling rendition of Jumpin' Jack Flash. A 20-page booklet has the layout of a souvenir from the tour and includes a wealth of photographs.
Harvey, Zal Cleminson (g), Chris Glen (b), Hugh McKenna (k) and Ted McKenna (d) had a special way of connecting with an audience, with both sides of the stage making a concert a truly special experience. This collection tells the wonderful story...from start to finish.
