Performance:   Sonics:
I am very unsatisfied with this SACD edition. The sonics are flat and the sound is sharp and annoying to listen to especially when you hear it at a high volume level or with headphones. OK, it's a 70ies live recording but wouldn't it have been worth the effort to create a more vinyl-like sound ? I listen to SACDs in the stereo manner only but nevertheless from a sonic point of view this is definitely one of the most disappointing SACDs I've ever listened to. Musically there is not much to discuss about. This is certainly one of the most important 70ies albums and I think to many people it is linked with memories from that time when we all were a little younger...The running order is sometimes confusing a bit. I had the CD-version of this recording and there was this little guitar piece "Penny for your thoughts" and the following title was "I'll give you money" with it's powerful drum introduction. Due to the original running order as recorded in the concert the two pieces are now separated which for me is difficult to get used to.

Performance:   Sonics:
I have to disagree with the previous review.The SACD 5.1 surround sound is pretty impressive-at times I actually thought I was in the front row at one of Peter Frampton's concerts in the mid-70's!As for the music,the 2-disc set is prime 70's arena rock at its finest,feturing the smashes "Show Me The Way","Do You Feel Like I Do" and the much-covered"Baby,I Love Your Way"

I have not heard the SACD version, but the DVD Audio 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition sounds good.
The sequence of songs on the DVD Audio disc do not follow the original LP record.
