got it, heard it, a very nicely polished album but obviously aimed at wider audience. The Abbey Road CDs will be owned by diehards.

Well my CD Arrived today and I have just finished listening to Disc 2, Ghost Town is definitely the best Live track here closely followed by Friday Night Saturday Morning, International Jet Set, Do Nothing and Man At C&A Smile

This CD is a great Memento of the concerts that took place around Europe and the UK in 2011, The only drawback is their is no interaction between the band and the audience, Some of Those Live Shows were very emotional and touching but all "Emotions" have been removed from this live set unfortunately Crying or Very sad

The Venues where the live tracks were recorded are not listed on the cd for some reason but they are available On-Line ?

The Booklet that came with the CD has 4 pages of liner notes by Robin Denselow, and a few nice pictures of the band Smile

The Art Idea for the booklet is much better than the Digipak provided, the CD Labels are the same as the 7" Live EP released earlier this year.

The Track Order is a bit confusing I think if would have been better if the tracks were played in the same order as they were played on tour.

Well that's more or less all I have to say I will listen to Disc 1 Tomorrow Smile

Finally got my copy today.

I think I'm alone in thinking the track order is great, I know which songs coming next.

It'd ave been nice for the few songs for the 2009 gigs had have been on, so you had a full collection, but I ain't complaining.

All in all, an enjoyable experience for me lug oles!

necessarily in the right order.

......thats a strange thing to say.....I always thought Roddys guitar work was if anything understated...dipping in and out at the right times..and letting rip when needed.

Confused
