The taper of this show writes: One of the great things about trading music is that you get to relive those pivotal concerts of the past. Such is the case with the 1976 Be Bop Deluxe show from the Riviera Theatre, Chicago. I, like another or two on this list, was at that show. Be Bop Deluxe opened for Thin Lizzy on the first date of their American Tour. I believe it was the first American date for Be Bop Deluxe. The concert was breathtaking. Both bands had such energy, such power in that small theater. It was one of those shows where when you walk out you just know you witnessed something extraordinary. The remastering that was done on this show truly does capture that energy all over again. Those soaring guitar solos from Bill Nelson are doing it to me again Listening to this show again makes me again say, "This is why I collect and love music so much."
