AllMusic Review by

More likely the June 9, 1981, performance than the June 4, 1981, performance, this show has been in circulation in partial form for some time. This two-CD bootleg (prior boots of this show have been single discs) contains everything from the best master known to be circulating. It was certainly an excellent show, with a powerful performance from the band and an enthusiastic response from the audience. The recording itself is of excellent quality because it had been intended for radio (again, a cut-down version has aired a number of times). Several cuts, including "Complete Control," were drawn from this show for From Here to Eternity. Note that while "One More Time" is indicated as being cut, it isn't -- the song transitions into "Brand New Cadillac." This particular boot also has "Lightning Strikes" and "Ivan Meets G.I. Joe" as a single cut.
