  This must be the easiest review I have ever had to do.  Live albums sometimes can be a bit of a hit and miss affair, but here everything is right!  Sound, songs, excitement, atmosphere.  The album has fantastic running time, 100 minutes, and is superbly packaged.  Gospel comes into it with Garth’s anthem to freedom “We Shall Be Free”.  That thought provoking gem, “Unanswered Prayers” is almost sung by the audience with only the minimum of help from Garth!  You get everything here from the very rowdy “Friends In Low Places”, “American Honky Tonk Bar Association”, to the very beautiful “The River”, “The Dance” and the simply beautiful “If Tomorrow Never Comes”.  Throughout it all Garth is in superb form, which is only to be expected with these ‘live’ recordings being pulled from many different places.  Garth gives credit to God in several places.  Wonderful.
