4 stars This is high art, played with a vengeance. As has been mentioned, the interplay is spontaneously beautiful, and the feel is a perfect blend of the Canterbury style, mixed with guys just giving it everything they've got.

What a thankful, and wonderful honor to have this live recording of the fab Mr. Gowen - absolutely the best Mini Moog soloist there was.

The age old argument of Stewart vs. Gowen will go on forever (I hope!) and it's a good one. Dave Stewart is almost too good, and his compositional skills are what makes you really listen...Gowen, man could he dream with the keyboards, never quite there, and that's the beauty of it.

So, too me, this album is a must, as it finally shows these guys really just blowing...

My wife's out of town, so I'm playing this quite loudly right now through speakers instead of headphones...ah the bliss.
