Live - Live (1974)

The one and only album from this German band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, flute, keyboards and vocals.

Live was one of those hard rock kraut rock band from Germany who pressed their own LP as a home pressing and then disappeared without a trace........ just to be dug up again by Youtube, Discocs, ProgArchives and blogs like I run.

The band members is surely amused by these events. Internet ? Self published blogs ? Youtube with distro to all countries in the world ? Utopia !! Madness !!

There is some of the home pressings who does not deserve that much attention. Then again, there is some jewels hidden among the home pressings....

The sound on this album is not the best. I still cannot understand why no labels picked up this band and launched their career. The band themselves must have put their feet down and chosen to do something else than music.

The music on this album is a mix of hard rock, kraut and ELP like symphonic prog. Eloy is a band and a sound that springs to mind. All Eloy fans must pick up this album.. hint hint.... Youtube.

The music is both muscular and melodic. It also has some good details.

I really rate this album despite of the poor sound. It is indeed a good album.

3 points
