Review by Sean Trane
3 stars This must've been the absolute top dream for CDS members as they got to tour with some real Can member. As evident from the first album on , Can is THE influence on their music (Krautrock in general but Can is particular) and this must be their crowning achievement in their opinion.

But to the average proghead , this album is certainly interesting but by all means not a real must (start with the other live album Immortality Lessons) but a curiosity. Of all CDS album , this is the one that sounds the most Can-Cliché , (for obvious reasons since they tried to do little else than Can had done in honor of Mr. Suzuki) and the less CDS.

The six tracks on each disk are not given titles , as they were more jams or experiments that were chosen on tapes. So the tracks were given the names of the cities they played in and the number is probably the sequence number in the respective concert.

If you are a CAN , fan , this will either please you enormously or will put you in a complete unease since the mimetism they manage here with Damo is not only great but fearsome. I am a bit torn between those two extremes since I love Can but do not want to hear acetate Can even with Damo singing. But the results are impressive ....... See for yourselves!
