Part of Universal's Authorized Bootleg series, this disc captures a concert Lynyrd Skynyrd gave at the Cardiff Capitol Theatre in Wales on November 4, 1975. Skynyrd was supporting their third album, Nuthin' Fancy, and they were operating like a well-oiled machine, giving a tight, focused set that draws pretty equally from Second Helping and Nuthin' Fancy. Surprises aren't the order of the day here, either in song selection or performance -- it's an efficient, entertaining concert by a working band determined to give their paying audience a good show. And that they do -- not a great show, but a good one, one that satisfies even if it's not necessarily memorable.
