Here's a forgotten gem of a record , an exhilarating shambolic concert from toulouse in 78... its everything you'd expect and more.. highlight for me a very loose, free wheelin' version of sonja ..which threatens to unravel at every bar but never does.
Its a wonderful band this time round with the likes of Evan Parker (whom ive always particularly enjoyed playing with these guys)Mike Osbourne ..potent as always , Charig , Beckett ...OTHER THAN THE CENTRAL comitee COMPRISED OF THE USUAL SUSPECTS... (read BLUE NOTES).
One can't even concieve of pomp- Meister Malfatti playing on this kind of material these days... a pity ..because he is so hot here!!
This may not be up to par interms of todays live recording standards( its at about the level of a good contemporary bootleg)..but what an electrifying performance.
still out of circulation(never been reissued to cd) ..perhaps it's murkiness has something to do with that.
