3 stars There are not many official Jan Akkerman's live recordings but this one captures him in a fine and relaxed mood. Present all all periods of his creative life starting from blues tracks, Focus period, solo career with classical and jazz guitar to slow guitar lad-back instrumentals. The sound is good and all players show enough passion to play together. The standout tracks include Slowhand and indeed, all Focus-penned compositions that are not always played in the entire length to let guitar shine. What I miss here is a single track from his high quality jazz-rock eponymous album.

This recording serves as a good live testament of some important tracks in Jan Akkerman's career and document the high-quality playing of a seasoned master being after the zenith of his prolific career.
