I bought this disc thinking it was a comprenhensive 'best of', finding out instead that it was a live set (actually, in hindsight, the track list shoulda been a clue). To be honest, this set isn't <i>too</i> bad, considering I bought for only $9.99 at CC the day after Thanksgiving. I've heard another live ELP set and the performances here are very good in comparison, maybe even better. But the drawback is the sound quality, which ranges from OK to terrible. The performances are taken from several different venues and I've heard bootlegs that sound better. I know, I know, its about the music, not the sound. Well, for me, it gots to sound good....and this disc is a stiff IMHO. Avoid.
