Very difficult to locate on CD (I have lost more than one bid on eBay), but my well worn LP copy is still a trusty friend- gatefold sleeve and all! This is a fine set from 10cc recorded during the Deceptive Bends tour. Now as a rabid 10cc fan, it’s bothered me over the years how some seem to view this as a ‘pointless’ exercise. Whatever, since post Godley & Crème live material from the late 70’s has obviously not been a bootlegger’s dream (I do have a couple things from this period. Ha!) and this set is easily available in any good used record store, so I recommend you check it out. There is also a good live version of Waterfall which was the ‘B’ side of the Rubber Bullets single, eventually released as a single itself just a few weeks before I’m Not in Love was released and it tanked. Imagine that? Anyway, for many years this was the only version of the song I had heard and made Live and Let Live all the more special.

As live albums go, yeah you could probably find better, but could you find a better band than 10cc?
