3 stars I was initially skeptical about this release given the fact that the track listing consists of the entire of Gazpacho's last two albums played back to back, and given the studio polish of those two releases. The point about a live album is that it has to be sufficiently different from the studio versions to warrant release, but without discarding what makes the original version so good. Loreley achieves this in spades in the way that, say Pink Floyd's official live releases fail the former, or Miles Davis fusion stuff the latter.

As such A Night at Loreley is a perfect companion to both Night and Tick Tock. The three tracks that come from the earlier albums When Earth Lets Go and Bravo, are very much in the style of the later albums in any case and work well here. In short this is a worthy release and comes recommended.

At the moment this is only available from the band directly and in in 2CD / 1DVD format. Lets hope it gets a wider release soon.
