This is excellent quality and although I wouldn't call it a great performance, it has some great moments and is an interesting set for several reasons. This was shortly after Bill Berry's departure and the release of their first post-Berry album Up. They didn't tour this album so their headliner appearances at these Bridge School benefits was a big deal at the time. Several songs get their live debut here and the core trio is augmented by several notable guest musicians, including Neil Young playing lead guitar on "Country Feedback."
