Comments: The same recording is available on the 2CD Staying Home To Watch The Rain and with far better quality.

Relatively easy to find. Concert is from Hollywood Bowl 22 Sep 72 except CD1 from London 17 Feb 72, due to defects on the original tapes. This is the same as Crackers vinyl RoIO, complete with numerous crackles. -BD (#23)

I don't think that CD1 is from the 17.2.72 concert as the magazine Brain Damage (#23) claims, it does not sound at all like that concert. The CD is of bad quality, been mastered from a very worn out vinyl. Especially disc 1 is of poor quality, disc 2 and 3 is a little better. Echoes is cut half way through. And it's poor playing time on all 3 discs. Not recomended. -TOR

Cracked is dreadful. It was copied from a poor vinyl copy of Crackers and uses 3 (!) discs. The original recording sounds like it's pretty good. -JEFF

To make things clear: Only 'Breathe' is from 17.2.72. The rest is indeed completely from 22.9.72. All in all, don't bother. The CD is not worth a single cent. It is completely recorded with wrong speed and therefore a pain to listen. Watch out for 'Staying Home to Wath the Rain': Same concert and _much_ better quality!. -HERWIG

Sound quality is fair; this show is obviously taken from its vinyl counterpart, the well-known Cracked box set. This show could have fit on two CDs, three is unnecessary and a rip-off. If you want this show, buy the better-sounding Staying Home to Watch the Rain. -ECM

Seen listed as "Hollywood Bowl '72".
