AllMusic Review by

This bootleg features a 1969 Flying Burrito Brothers' show at the Winterland Ballroom, in San Francisco, The recording quality is very good. Even though the mix is a bit murky, every instrument is distinguishable. This disc is highlighted by Burritos' favorites like "Hot Burrito #1," "Hot Burrito #2" and "Sin City," as well as songs not available on any officially released recordings. The highlights here are "Country Medley" ("If You Can't Undo the Wrong, Undo the Right" and "Somebody's Back in Town"), "Sweet Mental Revenge" and "We've Got to Get Ourselves Together." As an added bonus, the Rolling Stones' demo for "Wild Horses" appears as a bonus track. The version of "Six Days on the Road" on this disc is taken from the infamous Altamont concert, which they opened for the Rolling Stones.
