This two CD release was issued in the bulky double jewel case that was popular at the time. The insert photos are nice, and the discs are silk screened with the track listing. The limitations of the mid-1970s amateur equipment used to produce this audience recording are apparent. There are, however, worse problems with this title. This is a bit of a hatchet job. It was recorded directly from a vinyl LP of the same name. The generic LP back cover photo of Lady Liberty was used as the CD back cover as well. The front cover was taken from another LP boot entitled 'Nothing's Like A Woman' There are a few vinyl noises apparent, and a good deal of quality lost from the original tape. While it is good, most of the time there is a muffled 'head in a barrel' overall sound. The original LP took Romance In Durango and Isis out of performance order so that all of the Desire material would be grouped together. They remain out of order on this CD. For some reason, the final track; This Land Is Your Land, has been eliminated, along with other songs.  Certainly not due to time restraints, as this 2 CD set could have nearly been a single. Disc one is but 43 minutes; disc 2, 45 minutes. There are other great quality CDs of the entire show from a tape source that are linked above. Grab those, and leave this one to the completeists.

Bob's Boots ref  #

This same title was released by VooDoo Lounge. While it's obvious that one release was simply recorded from the other, it's not known for sure which was the original.
