4 stars This is an excellent example of the live performances I could see in the 70s.

Their style - a unique mix of Jazz Rock, Fusion, Funk and Ethno - is pushed by a groovy bass played by Helmut Hattler, sometimes used as a solo instrument. Also great guitar work always changing between rhythm and solo. The alto-sax serves oriental patches. You have to ignore the vocals but that's no problem because the music is dominated by instrumental parts.

The long tracks 'Nam Nam', 'Holiday am Marterhorn', 'Hallo Ja Ja' and 'Kraan Arabia' have jam character and demonstrate how great the guys are working together.

Better than every studio output ...
