1 stars This album was recorded live in front of 800 people to celebrate the band's 25-year-jubilee, and was recorded 2.10.1996. It was a strictly one-off gig that wouldn't be repeated. Just as well.

The album only contains only one old song and two new ones, all in all lasting only a mere 23 minutes. The rest is a collection of intricate murders of boring and bored covers, ranging from Peter Green's/Fleetwood Mac's 'Black Magic Woman' (yawn...), Deep Purple's 'Child In Time' and two Spencer Davis Group classics, to several washed-up Americana-turned-progrock by The Nice and ELP.

I loved the CD re-issue from Garden of Delights of their eponymous debut from 1971, but *LIVE...and passion' lacks both direction and integrity, and is nothing but a piece of sloppy work of a band that simply didn't have it in them anymore.

Best avoided!
