How long have we waited?
After years of rumours and false starts, finally Tramp fans have the chance to see the concert footage from the third Paris '79 concert (the first two having formed the basis of the 'Paris' live double album released in 1980).
I'm delighted to report that the sound is simply breathtaking (an improvement on the album quality) and indeed better than many bang up-to-date releases. True, the picture is, in places, a little grainy (long shots in particular suffer) and the video is slightly out of sync with the audio here and there, but given that the material is now 33 years old, to comment on these issues seems like griping for the sake of it!
Overall, it's the performance of the band that really sells this release. Five songs from the original concert were not filmed so what you get here is not the 'full package', but it's still one and a half hours of suprisingly high quality muscial entertainment and well woth a purchase for any fan.
