4 stars This is 70s jazz fusion with the emphasis on fun RnB and rock songs without sacrificing any artistic integrity. This is a live album and it is bursting with the kind of energy that only comes with live performances. Brian's solos on B3 and Fender Rhodes all have the pure analogue sound of their time. If there is any drawback to this album it is the sometimes off pitch vocals of Alex Ligertwood, but since most of this album is made up of kinetic instrumental jams, the vocals are a small drawback

Brian Auger and his band are definitley drawing from 60s RnB/jazz bands such as Les McCann and Ramsey Lewis on this album, but Auger's music hits a little harder because you can also hear the influence of 70s rockers such as Santana and Deep Purple.
