"Of course Coverdale's vocals smoke... and the version of 'Fool For Your Loving' included here is my favorite. 'Ain't No Love In the Heart of the City' is an awesome cross between melancholy blues and metal. But while better than the CD with 3 songs from the 11/23/78 Hammersmith show left off, they still left off one version of 'Come On' that was on the original double lp set (the strongest version, at that). Still, this is the most complete version to date that I know of.
I'm waiting for the double CD reissue with bonus tracks- hint hint!!!
March 20, 2007 UPDATE!
The 2 CD version is out. No bonus tracks, but at least all of the original tracks. My favorite Whitesnake release ever!"

"Being an older rocker, I brought this C.D to replace my vinyl double album. It was the nearest to a complete c.d copy of it that I could obtain.
The stadium rock style that whitesnake play is shown in full force on this cd compleation...it has crowd reactions and sing alongs which showcase whitesnake's ability as a live band and not just a studio one. My 15 year old thinks it's great too, and does not mind it played in the car!
Shame that they could not fit the extra song onto the c.d If you like early eighties rock then this is for you. A great live performance"
