Review from  


So here is a review of the recently released Long Beach California Dec 20th 1977 3 Coloured LP by Cream Of The Crop. I have to confess it's rarely been off of the deck since it's arrival.
As the title suggests from the sleeve the recording is from a master tape by Mike Millard so with some basic EQ'ing it is in my humble opinion one of the best releases in the last 5 years.
Now this release is not without fault, the editing of the audio is clumsy in places and one of the holes
in the center of one of the vinyl's was very tight to get on/off the deck but the audio content and the show itself is so utterly fantastic these minor issues are soon forgotten. 3 glorious LP's of what is a stunning performance and I can see this staying on the deck for another week yet.
