Triumph was on their Thunder Seven tour when this concert was played and that in itself means there are some great songs in this show. But rather than have me describe it all, let's get it uploaded so you can listen and decide what you think.

The waveform look great with no audio clipping. It looks like someone likely amplified the original audio to the maximum without clipping it possibly. However, even though this is an excellent sounding show, it lacks a little in the mix at the beginning I think. But it is not brickwalled either so that is good. You can hear everyone (all three of the band members) and their instruments. There is very little tape hiss also.
There are a few dropouts in the show. There's one at the beginning on CD 1 and then at least two on CD 2. "World of Fantasy" is incomplete too. The song just drops out and then the drum solo, already playing, picks up. I guess the taper wasn't paying close attention and ran out of tape unfortunately?
It's a little ironic that in the band interview before the show the disc jockey ask the band how they handle arguments on the road. They indicate they really didn't have them other than the short, normal kinds like between a "husband and wide" over small stuff. Yea, right! Everyone knows this band came apart due to their constant disagreements and arguments. When I first saw and met Rik Emmett in 2000 I believe half of his talk between songs was still putting down Gil Moore. They didn't get along well. But they did make great music while they lasted.
If you like Triumph, you'll like this show. It sounds excellent and the performance is just as good. I would have upload the show in the past but I only had an mp3 copy until today when I went and found a lossless copy. So here we go.
I hope you enjoy the show...
