2 stars Locomotiv GT - In Warsaw (1975)

Somehow I was always interested in this band, I simply don't know why. I had high expectations for this band. But this isn't eclectic prog, this is plain pop/funk sung in Hungarian. Having that said, it quite nice pop/funk, but it just isn't progressive.

Locomotiv GT had a short progressive period during the Ringasd el magad period. After that they changed their sound to the funk presented on this live album. This live album has no material from their progressive period. Locmotiv presents itself as a professional band with skilled musicians on keys, guitars and drums. The vocals are quite good. The tracks sound a bit alike, but are all acceptable. Playing live shurely isn't a problem for this band. Among the last tracks of the album are two piano-oriented songs that are quite nice, but again nothing special.

Conclusion. This is only for fans of Locomotiv Gt and people who desperately want to have special funk music. Good live performance, talented band, but no progressive music is to be found here. Two stars.
