Very nice live show from the Roxy Theatre, Hollywood California, January 4, 1987. This is the same show as the CDs One For The Road, Hollywood Babylon and Panic On Sunset Strip and the video Panic On Sunset Strip. Good sound, the band is hot and Johnny sounds tight. Tracks 9-13 are Johnny solo on acoustic guitar and the rest are with the band. This has all the faves except Chinese Rocks!
Hollywood Babylon and One For The Road are 72 minutes long. In The Flesh and Panic On Sunset Strip are only 63 minutes long. The shorter CDs are missing the audience noise and a lot of Johnny talking at the end of the tracks. I think it adds to the show so would prefer the longer CDs.
This appears to be a legit release while the 'One For The Road' CD seems to be a bootleg. There are no new photos in the booklet but good liner notes by Bill Holdship.
