NOT live, and it HAD potential

"I haven't been able to figure out why this CD has "Live" in it's title considering that all of the songs are studio recordings. Most of the songs were originally released on a peculiar government issued vinyl LP titled "Here's To The Veterans". I was initially excited to learn that the alternative versions of "Al Di La" and "Camelot" were on this CD until I heard the quality of the recordings. They sound as though you're playing old 45-lps rather than a digital CD. I like the peppy "It All Depends On You", but again, the quality is poor. "Where Are They Now" has been a concert standard for Vale lately, but my old 45 lps of the song sounds better. If you already own the singles of these songs, or the "Veterans" vinyl LP, I don't recommend this CD."
