I listened to this record so often back in the days that i had to buy me a new double vinyl version.

Now I've seen this live version (i wasn't expecting much from it) i also got goose-skin on places you don't want to know.

Very accurate replay of the original double LP, high respect for the musicians and also for the animators who designed the background movie.

Together with the background animation it watches like a movie following the storyline with the best movie-music ever !

I don't have much more info to add so i write this line to get the minimum of 10 lines text filled up.
