4 stars A superb live testament to this often underated band at the peak of their instrumental powers. Superbly recorded and boasting two lengthy bonus tracks - Before you lay down recorded the previous night to the bulk of the original album release - and Traum recorded for a radio broadcast in 1977 - this is an excellent two CD set. Hoelderlin's music is a blend of symphonic rock featuring complex inventive arrangements and elements of folk and jazz rock style improvisation. It's a great combination of styles highly recommended to anyone who enjoys Happy The Man and their ilk. Largely instrumental much of the live excitement centres around the interplay of violin, guitar and keyboards supported by very deft bass and drums. Uplifting progressive music of the highest order!
