COMMENTS: A new Midnight Special release, with some never released takes plus the normal stuff that was included in the show. It's extremely difficult to hear what is what, but it seems that the songs called (mix) are the ones broadcast, and the rest are outtakes and some are just aborted versions! This CD is a compilation of a double CDR, and one has managed to get almost the complete double set down to a single CD disc! The omitted stuff is: TIME take1, EVERYTHING'S ALRIGHT take4 and I CAN'T EXPLAIN take1. Well, I really don't know if this is good or less good. The sound quality isn't always good, the sound "floats" a little, but as a document of the recording of the TV special it's okey!
