5 stars Perhaps the fines and rarest release by SBB and somewhat unique in the sense that here the guitar tends to dominate more than the keyboards. That being rather the opposite in most of their other works.

Here, the compositions are more structured than on their first "Live" album. A strong Mahavishnu influence is also unmistakable, yet it remains closer to Symphonic than Jazz Rock..

From beginning to end, this performance captivates the attention, often resulting in a second, even third(!) consequtive spin. It's that good! Indeed, it would have a place amongst my choices of 10 in a "Desert Island" collection.

A great starting point in exploring the band's bewilderingly large discography, only released in full in recent years.

BORA | 5/5 |
