After Vicious But Fair did nothing in the U.S., Mercury passed on this live double set, which British Phonogram made available to the half-dozen or so Streetwalkers fans in America. There's not much to recommend here, the sound quality is awful, and the vinyl pressing frequently fuzzes into a ball of distortion when the band plays in unison. Chapman tears off a few soulful moments, and when the band doesn't sound like a bunch of prog-rock hacks, it can rock. This is only for the truly fanatical.
