Groundbreaking Album[edit]

Frampton states this was the first live album to record in a new way. Was he referring to Dolby "A" or 24-track ? ~~ Xb2u7Zjzc32 (talk) 10:11, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Why So Good?[edit]

As the owner of an original vinyl copy, I agree it's good, but I am always surprised at the total reverence for this album. I've never felt it comes up to Live Rust or Live at Leeds. Sales alone aren't proof of quality. Instead of just having an allmusic score, the claim of 'one of the greatest live albums of all time' really ought to be backed up by a detailed 'critical reception' section.

Wikipedia would be better off if the phrase "one of the greatest" was eliminated from all music articles as it is a somewhat vague, loosely-defined term when you think about it. I'll add some contemporary reviews soon but looking at a few, it seems the consensus was that it was a very good live album, Frampton's best album to date, but nothing that hinted at the popularity it would achieve.

Doobie Wah[edit]

Shouldn't Doobie Wah credit The Doobie Brothers, or at least Tom Johnston, as a partial author since the track is an obvious reworking of (and an outright nod to) Listen to the Music? Or is the argument that since the album's liner notes don't credit the Doobie Brothers, Wikipedia can't either? This is an encyclopedia after all, and facts are facts.
