AllMusic Review by

Originally recorded by the CBC in March 1982, it took nine years for this concert to be released on CD to the general public. The set is a good sampling of his early albums (excluding From Fresh Water, which was released after the concert but before this album's eventual release), with solid performances throughout. The inclusion of between-song patter is a revelation to those who think of Rogers as a mythical, almost saint-like figure of folk music: the man had a wicked sense of humor, and he wasn't afraid to use it. The versions here may not be definitive, but as a collection it's top notch.
