3 stars "Welcome back my friends, to the show that never ends, ladies and gentlemen .. COLLEGIUM MUSICUM!! After a few minutes listening to their music (live recordings from 1973) I had almost made this review because it's so obvious derived from early ELP ("Pictures .."-era): an omnipresence of the powerful Hammond organ (bombastic floods and flashy runs), a propulsive, metallic sounding bass and fluent drumming. The band plays less virtuosic and less fiery but they sound tight and inspired, these are good musicians who enjoy themselves and please their crowd. Only the drum solo sounds a bit boring but in those days every drummer got the opportunity to shows his skills! A fine album for Hammond aficionados.
