Spot On! - Never going to forget it this rest of my life!


Very changing in those days with what was available to record - but great none the less!
Recording: "SONY ECM-939 - WM D6" aka "War Detroit" - 3 stars


5 Star - The balcony almost collapsed with power and energy never seen before at a concert


Life Changing Forever and the Eternal Beyond. Would give anything to be there again!
