2 stars LAGGER BLUES MACHINE are from Belgium.This is a live release from a 1970's concert in Brussells where they opened for a few bands including WISHBONE ASH. The sound quality isn't the best and they really sound simply like a heavy jam band here, there's nothing that reminds me of Zeuhl on this recording. I really like the first two tracks but the other three are poor at best.This was actually released posthumously in 1992, so it's a chance to hear the band before they even released their first and only studio album.

"Born To Be Alone On A White Desert Island" sounds pretty good early with the bass, drums and guitar standing out. Vocal melodies and flute join in.The organ rips it up before 2 minutes.The drums and guitar amaze 4 minutes in.Vocal melodies are back as themes start to be repeated.

"Test About Rehabilitating Personality" kicks in with drums and guitar before a minute. Just a killer jam really. "Ode" is where things turn south fast. The vocals for one are bizarre and the sound quality is worse. "Mistake" features a prolonged drum solo. "Firedance" is another one where the vocals and sound disappoint. An incredible guitar solo though after 4 minutes.

Fans only for this one.Get the studio album if you can.
