This 2-CD set features the complete last Las Vegas show from December 12th, 1976, it's from an audience recording, but it's sounds pretty good. The highlight is of course "Such a night", more details of this show later. The rest on the 2nd Disc has been filled with the unreleased Time Life bonus songs, but the sound is a little flat when comparing to the Time Life CD's.

Sound rate ** 1/2 - ****
