5.0 out of 5 stars Get the double CD / Avoid the single CDs September 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
My goodness, but what a difference. I have both versions of this release: the original separate CDs & the re-mastered double CD. The sound of the re-mastered vesion is so far superior that it made me question whether this was the same concert. If you're questioning your need to replace your earlier CDs (or LPs) rest assured, it is worth the expense. I've purchased other NEKTAR re-issues, only to be disappointed. This release is exhilarating!

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawed Masterpiece July 3, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Nektar are a band that has to be caught live to be fully appreciated. This is a live recording of the band in its prime from 1974 in a city where they always seem to play at their best, New York. It is also the band in its original line-up with Roye Albrighton on guitar and vocals, Ron Howden on Drums, Mo Moore on Bass and Vocals with Taff Freeman on Hammond Organ and vocals. The band is young and hot, its chemistry obvious as its technical prowess and hooks. There are several versions of Live in New York, this is the best since it is all the songs, the complete show. The band hit the stage on fire with Astral Man and rock it hard. They hit a small snag on their hit Remember the Future part one when the power goes out but it is barely noticeable and the band does the right thing and keeps on going; in fact the band never slows down after that as they groove on Marvelous Moses, slowing ever so slightly for It's All Over and then hit the gas again for their hyper driven rocker Good Day which is searing. Again they let off the accelerator slightly for a fantastic rendition of That's Life and then punch it again for Show me the Way and then take things to the fever pitch that is Day in the Life of a Preacher. Through it all, the melody is all over every song with amazing interplay between the players; the intricate pieces fall together beautifully and flow one into the other as the set builds to its climax. Roye is in great voice, the solos on his guitar fit perfectly in every song in fact each of the players shine in turn in each and every song so there is no time lost. What is evident is the band work well together and each song is a hilight. Want something groove laden and Jazz flavored, try Desolation Valley which is superb. Want a rocker? Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint of heart.... December 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I would rate this album 5 stars if it weren't for the recording.
As I remember, this was recorded with an experimental process intended to give a 3d effect (the artificial head sound technique). Yes the sound isn't good...but that doesn't take away from the fact that this is an incredible performance. Layered with subtle guitar textures to extremely violent guitar solos...
I grew up on this album and lost some of my hearing on this. I feel sorry for the fellow who gave up on this...it takes a bit of extra work to get past the sound....but its worth it.
Live at the Roundhouse is for you people who want the better sound(and a more calm performance).

5.0 out of 5 stars A couterweight to other opinions... May 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Sorry, I have to contradict the below reviewer. I've heard this in houses, cars, and boomboxes and the sound is NOT awful. It's not the cleanest live recording I've ever heard, but nothing from that period is. Yes, the band perspective is somewhat distant and the (I think small) performance space has a certain kind of echo.

But the band are quite energetic, and especially "King of Twilight" really hits a groove.

The disc would be good if that were the only decent song, but the others are good as well.

Thanks to this great prog band and this great audio format. I love it. SACD is the best format in the world to audiophile pleasure and good Home Theaters with one player dedicated like Oppo Digital. I'll purchase more...and more SACDs. Thanks for all.
