This came back on to the Ferry website store a day or so ago, so I bought it.
I remember someone saying on this site the live version of Loop de li is a clincher. I cannot wait.

Well, this is a better listen than I expected.
The musicianship is outstanding, I recall my impression of the live 2017/2018 gigs was centred on Ferry’s wavering vocals.

I bought it on release and thoroughly enjoy it. It seemed to appear with fairly little fanfare and no great advance build up and made it all the more of a delight. I wish Team BF would release more in this way.

Normally I prefer studio albums but this year I enjoyed to listen to the live albums of Roxy and Bryan. I like BF Live 2015 very much because it reminds me of three of Bryan's shows we have seen in 2015/17/18.

Tight band, fine choice of songs and a tasteful artwork. My favourite tracks: Beauty Queen, Bob Dylan's Dream and Tara as extended version. I miss Like A Hurricane but that's no problem - it's included in Live In Lyon 2013 8-) .

A few listens in, and what a great career spanning collection this is.
I touched upon the great musicianship in a a previous post , and there are moments were Chalmers, Quistgaard, and Wilkins really do make my skin tingle , and Bullen, of course, driving Ladytron and If there is Something with a thundering rhythm from the rear.
The whole ensemble can take credit for this fine album.
Other stand out tracks are Loop de Li, Bete Noire, and Can’t Let Go, but the piece works, even the run of hits towards the finale.
With Ferry and Roxy gigs , I always thought the first half more interesting than the second.
