4 stars This album contains three instrumental jazz rock jams recorded by Radio Bremen in September 1974 shortly after the band had produced the second LP. Keyboarder Dieter Miekautsch had left the band towards EMBRYO and Eddy Maron, also known from contributions for VITA NOVA and DZYAN, brings new aspects to the music - it's quite a new impression of the band. The sound quality leaves nothing to be desired by the way.

The twentyseven minute Free Clinic is known as a (way shorter) bonus live track from the digitalized version of the second MISSUS BEASTLY album. Sometimes even with a free jazz touch they are jamming all the way through with excellent interaction. Lutz Oldemeier is much more than a drum machine - he plays varied even using his instrument for solo excursions when backing the others on the way to what destination ever. Norbert Dömling acts impressing as usual with his funky bass and the brass instruments are swirling around all over there.

Green Girl is quite more accessible - canterburiesque with a fusion oriented guitar. Dömling surprisingly changes his style right in the middle from somewhat angular to funky. On Steel's Electric Eddy Maron gets the chance to shine with his guitar skills completely - no wonder - a song which was composed by himself. The band once again plays near to a free jazz style with weird flute and saxophone contributions.

A very good show documenting a new facet of the MISSUS BEASTLY band and a highlight for fans of improvised jazz rock. 4 stars are well deserved.
