This is a very enjoyable compilation, with excellent coloration and stunning close-ups. The songs are sourced from the master tapes, and thus are the best possible transfers we'll see until the complete shows are made available. The sound varies from song to song, but averages out to about a '4-' so I'll give the disk a '4' as a whole. Needless to say, a sound upgrade of the individual tracks would add greatly to the attractiveness of this disk.
