4 stars Mighty Krauty Trippy psychedelic live from UK. This incredibly delightful, fantastic gig in 1971 can be called as sorta their legacy. Although their acceptable catchiness heard e.g. in "Trials Of A City" sounds like 60s bluesy psychedelic rock like Iron Butterfly, addictive, aggressive improvised energy of leapfrog all over the entire live (album), first of all, reminds me of long trip gigs by Grateful Dead, and at the same time notifies me of authentic Krautrock texture like Eiliff (this is the reason why I thought they should be approved as a Krautrock combo).

Even in the first pickup and their signature song "Egyptian Tomb" are plenty of improvisational, spiritual mashup phrases. Monotonous loose lazy blues rock between freakout improvisations is comfortable indeed, but their real "might" should be upon another turf. The longest track (over 20 minutes!) "India", that might be the highlight upon this stage methinks, has various musical, rhythmic appearances. Mainly impromptu, improvised rock / blues sensation was played, without any deformation nor distortion. The audience might be quite happy drenched in such a tripping atmosphere, and enjoy in front of "the mighty babies" without any breath.

It's a pity they are appreciated simply as an old-fashioned progressive rock unit. Let me say they are non-German Krautrock prototype from UK. Why cannot we get amazed at their gorgeous live album?
