Comments: Excellent crowd recording. POTW-2 contains 'the' guitar solo at the end. Pigs contains about 3 to 5 minutes jam-session at the end (very nice !!!) - PIET (?)

Great show (the best I've heard). This one is edited a little better than the 'Oakland...' RoIO, but this have also resulted in that some of the speaking between songs have been cut out. There is also a little more tape hiss on this one than on the other. I consider it a to be a must have, to have one of the CD's from this show. -TOR

This is a wonderful recording of an awesome show. The above times are taken from the cd's themselves. The times in parentheses are the actual times from the cd timer. During "WYWH" there are three loud noises, like someone dropped something (quite a shock if you're listening through headphones!). The first part of "SOYCD" fades out a little early (I think they ran out of room when this was recorded). -ANON

It seems that there are versions of Plays The Animals that have SOYCD 1-5 truncated. But mine is not. It features the complete show, and I prefer the sound quality on it than on In The Flesh. So I would say that if you are lucky enough to have the untruncated version, PTA is preferable. -ANON

Up to this time, I thought that "In The Flesh" was the best recording from the 1977 tour. Well guess what, I think I might have been wrong. I just purchased "Plays The Animals", and like it much more than both "Oakland" and "In The Flesh". With the exception of some loud noises during "Wish You Were Here", the sound quality is exceptional, especially for an audience recording. This is the complete show from the May 9, 1977 Oakland show, which includes "Careful With That Axe, Eugene". A definite must have. - ABDABS
