It includes the entire “Crime of the Century” album and some tracks from the then still-to-be-recorded “Crisis? What Crisis?” album forming the middle third of the concert.

While in the US, the album saw improvement in sales, peaking at No. 38, with the hit single "Bloody Well Right" gaining traction. Tracks like "School" also gained popularity, especially on album rock-oriented radio stations. The album eventually attained Gold certification in the US in 1977 and Diamond status in Canada. Notably, it was the first Supertramp album to feature drummer Bob Siebenberg, brass and woodwind player John Helliwell, bassist Dougie Thomson, and co-producer Ken Scott. Its critical acclaim led to its inclusion in Rolling Stone’s "50 Greatest Prog Rock Albums of All Time".

This album features Renaissance, the English progressive rock band renowned for their 1978 UK top 10 hit "Northern Lights" and classics like "Carpet of the Sun," "Mother Russia," and "Ashes Are Burning." Known for their unique sound blending classical, folk, rock, and jazz influences, the band showcases Annie Haslam's wide vocal range, prominent piano accompaniment, orchestral arrangements, and vocal harmonies. This release, available on 180g colored vinyl, captures the essence of Renaissance's distinctive musical journey.
