3 stars From what I gather this album is a one-night recording at the Marquee club out of a chaotic tour in 93 where Arthur Brown realized he had been too long away from the stage. The set list is a bit of a recap of his career from the early Fire days (a bit botched up here) to the Kingdom Come years with the great Time Captains. The sound quality ranges from excellent to just acceptable which is not out of character for the label this album appears on!

Out of the tracks played that night, there are some real cookers such as Nightmares and Come And Buy and the double opener that set the tone for the evening When You Open The Door and a sizzling but synthesized horn section, but also some weaker moments such as King Of and Juices Of Love (deceptive especially the title) and the reggae-ish homage to Nelson Mandela! But the might ends on a superb Time Captains (that make you wish he had done Superficial Roadblocks also) and a grandiose I Put A Spell On You. If you are a fan to the God Of Hellfire, this album may be a must for you to have but to anybody else, this album is non-essential but good and very much worth a spin in your deck, even if to check out the crazy world of Arthur!
