DEEP: A complete and much improved recording of the Oklahoma City soundboard tape, although not up to the standards we've come to expect from boards these days. The sound, in fact, fits the event, giving it a mangy kind of dust-bowl and tumbleweed type vibe. The unique Desire sound is captured on stage, running the gamut from the raunchy rock blues of "Maggie's Farm" to the soul-searching, almost plaintive "Going Going Gone," from the mystical sound of "Isis" to the countrified and jaunty "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go." Just listen..... oh, and the filler.

rmd: Highly, highly recommended. Not quite up to the standard of Hold The Fort (For What It's Worth, the definitive 1976 disc, but a very close second -- and several of the individual tracks are better!
