These live recordings from a BBC broadcast in 1973 show the true live essence of Amon Düül II, based more on the research of a trippy atmosphere than on technical values: while the rhythm section is very tight, the guitar and vocal parts are stunningly raw, deconstructed, sometimes evidently out of tune.

It’s obvious that this treatment is most likely to exalt the earlier material than the ‘structural’ phase of the band: so “Kanaan” and “Dem Guten, Schonen, Wahren” are given botched but valid renditions.

This edition of the album also includes two bonus tracks from the “Tanz der Lemmings” sessions.
