It's Portishead, performing live at New York’s Roseland Ballroom, during their original '90s pomp (later followed by their current pomp of course). And it’s a pretty sublime performance all told, the main group joined by an orchestra to perform dusty, extra-noirish versions of classic tracks from Dummy and Portishead. Reissued on 2 LPs.

Some people liked this record, some people didn't. I, personally thought it was one of the best albums I've ever heard. It doesn't really sound live at all, except when the audience cheers,(And when they messed up Roads by clapping all through it.) All of the songs sound as if something has been added to give them more depth. Beth's voice sounds even more beautiful than on the original recordings. If you're new to Portishead and you can't decide on what album to get, buy this one. It has songs from both Dummy and Portishead on it and they sound fabulous.
