Nice catch, Matt. I changed it here and will inform the record company,.

So, they fixed  "Play On" (on their website), but now on disc 2 the last 4 songs are all numbered '11'...

I was able to get my copy today at local independent  record store. Called and they said it was in!! The cd took me right back to the concert . I am so happy they released this first show. Enjoyed reading the liner notes especially Ken and Bernie's. It makes you realize what an impact this band made on so many people. Thank you Eric, Dave, Wally and Jim for giving us this gift!!

I purchased the CD's from Amoeba.com. $20.98 plus free shipping and no tax. Cheaper than Amazon after factoring in sales tax and possibly shipping, if you don't have a Prime account. I have bought things from Amoeba before and had no issues. Should be here tomorrow.

I also purchased/pre-ordered the LP's from SoundStageDirect.com. $54.99, however, using code LP20, I got 20% off. Unfortunately, you must spend at least $49.99 for free shipping. A good excuse for buying another Boston Third Stage LP! :-) I have bought a bunch of LP's from them. No issues with them either.

I remember when Live on Sunset Strip first came out I was so excited. One of my favorite songs is "Starting Over". It didn't make the cut on the live CD. If I remember, the mixing of the song wasn't great, so I was a little disappointed. Now with "Pop live", I can hear it live. Yay!

Just an FYI - Starting Over [Live] is on The Essential Eric Carmen 2 CD set that came out in 2014.

Here's another surprise. Of course, as the band honed their act and continued to play more shows their voices and chops just got better and better. But on this first glorious night, their first appearance together in three decades, the band member who sang most flawlessly was Dave Smalley. Every single one of his songs is sung with precision. I know Dave was writing his tunes for his more limited vocal range, but when you get the live CD you'll see. He nails each and everyone of his songs and his voice sounds exactly like it did when they were first recorded. Amazing, Dave!

Sweet Jesus....got my CDs and picture this - 85 and sunny, the lawn is done, steak on the grill, tiki lights are lit, and a 12 pack of Sam Summer on ice and Raspberries Pop Art live blasting - talk about waking up the neighbors - best live set for me since 77 and Frampton - awesome, awesome, awesome - so good! Thank You so so much for putting this out, I am totally pumped! Wow!!! Guys, we only live once, please do it again. Ok, I got to go calm down. Thanks again.
