A splendid live album from fairly early in Jarre's career. The remastered sound quality is brilliant and the various pieces sound as good here as they would on a studio album. He seems to have gone out of his way to add an oriental flavour to the concert, including sampling everyday sounds unique to China, so whereas this could have just been straight live interpretations of his work interspersed with clapping, it turns out to be more. At almost 80 minutes of music, this is well worth the price.
