Yeah I feel the same way. I like the '76 shows. Lots of people knock them and its' not my favorite tour, but I rather listen to some of those recordings (Earls Court, Paris 6/6 & 6/7, Lyon) as to listen to something from the modern era. I think LYL could have been much stronger with more '75 and El Mocambo material on it but I also think it could have been stronger if they had used some different performances from '76. That's one of the weaker versions of "Honky Tonk Women" that I've heard. I hate what they did to YCAGWYW.
Some songs are good though. I like the whole 4th side alot. While I do like the El Mocambo side, I think it's a bit overrated. People always rave about it like its' the greatest thing ever. It is good, but not as good as some people say. The version of "Star Star" on there is great. The definitive performance in my opinion.
I think the Marquee '71 set blows and I hardly ever listen to it. The sound isn't that great either. I can barely hear Keith. I mean, it's a good setlist but the performance? Nah, I'll take Leeds or the Roundhouse anyday.
