Bassist Jerry Meehan is rock solid. Ferry makes good use of twin backup singers on each stage side to assist him with some vocal passages. He was 67 at the time after all. One of the visual treats is the presence of two supremely sexy dancers who seemingly appear more scantily clad with each costume change. Nice, and so appropriate for an artist whose whole shtick is fruitlessly chasing the uncatchable stylish fashion model female perfection of glamour. The songs and their arrangements are top drawer with excellent solo spots.
Consummately professional and inspired all around. The performance of the covers show just how many he has truly put his stamp on. But he still is mystifyingly less known in the U. I think the live setting, at louder hard rock settings and clearly revealing the contributions by all, nicely overcomes the occasional sterility of the studio.
The guitar arrangements are neatly complimentary , with Thompson mostly doing the edgier stuff and Hubbard playing note perfect. All in all, a great show by a formidable and long lasting truly unique artist. Certainly among the best of his generation. The disc includes a bonus feature film The Making Of Olympia.
