4 stars (eighth in a serie of ten)

4,5 stars really. As from early 2005 , this album and Shootout are the only Traffic album awaiting a remastering. This is almost the same line-up than on Shootout but man, do they rock...... Full of lenghty interplay between a relatively tight band , this album got ineply critcized as lenghty and over-indulging jams - Absolute Rubbish. This is probably the finest live statement Traffic could have done. Most numbers have been expanded to allow more interplay but I never sensed a feeling of stretching out at all. There are no long drum solo or much other real solos (in the proper sense of the term solo) and every second sound justified to me. This was originally a double vinyl but managed to fit in a single cd so it is a great value not only in musical terms.
