review by TheFly33

Good, raw performance. It's early on in the tour, so they're still working stuff out with the new songs. Solid renditions of the old songs, plus you get one of the few performances of "A Celebration."


Definitely four stars, but one of the better four-star recordings, especially given the era. Very listenable.
Recording: "Beaton - D6 Master" - 4 stars


Audience is really loud (in a good way). They sing along to everything, even more obscure tracks.


A great sample of what the early War Tour was like. The set is different, and while the band isn't as tight was they are in later shows, there's a raw energy that's powerful. Definitely worth a listen.
