- This is Dream Theater's 1st live album, and their 3rd release overall, coming in between Images and Words and Awake.
- DT's invovlement with the creation of this album is very low, their interest in doing a live album at the time was not great and they did it basically becuase they thought the fans might be interested in it.
- All songs taken from their 4/23/93 performance at the Marquee in London.
- Japanese versions of this CD do not contain Surrounded. but instead have Another Day.
- Mike Portnoy says he prefers the Japanese pressing as it is more proper to have the songs in that order.
- Bombay Vindaloo is completely improvised, some of the ideas in that song wound up in Lifting Shadows Off A Dream.
- The album's "sacred heart" cover is taken from Images and Words.
- DT's signature "Majesty Logo" does not appear on the cover, back cover or in the liner notes at all. The only place it appears is on the CD itself.
- Many overdubs were used on this album, sacrificing the "live" feel of the alum for a very clean feel.
- This is the only live album to feature Kevin Moore on keyboards.
