Additional comments Very good audience recording of one of the most powerful recordings in 1979. Great versions and there are a couple of very rare songs in this setlist: Portobello belle, Solid rock (really rare for 1979!), Setting me up (rarely performed live and a great powerful version this is!) and Twisting by the pool. Speed corrected version. Also a very nice bridge between Angel of mercy and Solid rock. The atmosphere is terrific on this concert, a must to have!
